So if the size increase was applied equally in each dimension, it would be about 3.2% longer, wider, and taller.
It would not be 10% more in each dimension as that would = 33% bigger.
Being a crossover, most to all of the 10% bigger size will likely be applied to height.

I clearly missed the Cubed Root volume thing
BMW X5/Audi Q5 seem like a logical target. Audi e-tron SUV turned out Q7 size with Q5 cargo volume. Need more "U" in an SUV/CUV. I'm really hoping Model Y will work for me as I'd really like Supercharger access. Hatchback without Falcon doors is encouraging. Look forward to the reveal.
