CT200 Storage Capacity--Worried Before Purchase

Hi all, I've fallen in love with the CT200 and could own one this week only I can't decide if I'm choosing love and impracticality (the CT) where I should be choosing good enough and more functional (a Prius? something else?). After packing up from a weekend away, I'm not sure the CT's small trunk is enough. I have one child, age 2, and would typically be using the car for weekends away.
Any CT owners out there have any insight on the day to day use and storage capacity of their cars? Any CT owners also parents of a small child (with all the bags upon bags small children seem to generate)?
I'm currently the driver of an old Honda Civic (1993).

Storage capacity

I think the key is efficiency of packing. Of course the CT200 is not a mini van where you throw whatever you want into it. I wouldn't brand it a young family car either. With a young child in the back seat you can split the rear fold down and get more gear in. A stroller and a pack n play sleeper plus an overnight bag or 2 would max you out. Planning a second child soon, don't get the CT200.
My problem now is my 16 year old at 5'9" finds the back tight.
If you having a growing family I would go for a small SUV like the Honda CRV for better space. Young children get fidigity in a car. They need some space. Soon you'll find yourself getting kicked in the back of the seat by your child's feet and you will not be happy.
I love my CT200 but it has to be the right fit and I'm thinking you'd be better off with something with a bit more growing room.
