How do you call this word in English?

A place in the back of a car where you put luggage and some wheels.

Thank you in advance!

Trunk or Car trunk. Usually we just say "trunk".

I agree with Salerno.

Note that "trunk" is American English.

In British English we say "boot".

I'm new here and have great respect for all learners. No offense is meant. Isn't it also helpful to point out that the question, in English, should be "What is this called in English?" (Many other correct ways of asking the same question can be used. The word "how" is most associated with actions, with doing. As in, "How do you say (non-English word here)?)
