If you have two vehicles then the perfect scenario for your new garage would be a perfect fit for both.
However, in order to achieve a smooth transition from the driveway into your garage, choosing the right size for your 2 car garage is of utmost importance.
In this blog let’s answer the common question, How big is a 2 car garage?
In order to fully answer this question let’s dig deeper into the sizing details of a 2 car garage, and end by discovering which size of a 2 car garage is right for you and your vehicles.
What is a Two Car Garage?
Yes, the answer is pretty self explanatory, however just for clarity’s sake…
A two car garage is either an attached or detached garage and commonly built in the following sizes, 20×20, 20×22, 24×24, or 24×30. The right size for you depends on the size of your vehicles and your desire for extra storage space or room for a workbench.

Typically, a two car garage offers just the right amount of space to park your two vehicles. Plus, the walls can also provide room for storage such as bicycles, ladders, garden equipment, trash cans, shelving for bins, etc.
If your garage is big enough (for example, like a 24’x24’) you could also fit a workbench for your handyman projects or personal hobby. This size would provide you with enough space to comfortably work on your hobby, allow for shelving to be built on opposite sides of the garage, and easily open and close your car doors.
At the end of the day, what you can fit inside your two-garage really depends upon its size, the size of your vehicles (do you own a dually truck?), and whether you add a second floor.
What is the Average Size of a 2 Car Garage?
The average sizes of a 2 car garage are 20×20, 24×24, and 24×30.
How Many Square Feet is In a 2 Car Garage?
The average sized 2 car garage’s square footage usually ranges from 400 (20×20), 576(24×24), and 720 (24×30) square feet. Of course, to figure out your ideal 2 car garage square footage, measure out your ideal space by factoring in the size of your vehicles, desired room for storage, and any extras like a workbench, or sink.
What is the Minimum Size for a 2 Car Garage?
The smallest size you would want to go for a two car garage is 20×20. Depending what size and style your vehicles are, you may be in for a very tight squeeze. However, with very careful parking, you can park smaller to regular sized cars inside..
If your vehicles are both on the larger side of regular you may be restricted from opening certain sides of the car doors especially if you include shelving on the sides.
If you wish to park larger sized vehicles, definitely go bigger.
What is the Best Size for a 2 Car Garage?
The recommended ( and most popular) size for a 2 car garage is 24×24. (As you can see in the following video), a 24×24 2 car garage provides you enough space to comfortably park your two vehicles, easily open and close your doors, enjoy space for shelving, and enough headspace for a workbench.
However, if you are parking a heavy duty truck and a larger sized vehicle, your ideal size would be 24×30. Check out this following video to get an idea of how your truck could fit inside a garage this size.
