I haven't' measured it but the first time I changed it I dumped the whole 5 qts in and it was over the crosshatch by about 1/4 qt. Now I put in about 4.75 qts and it's still a bit over. 4.5 to 4.6 might be about right. The manual is wrong for my car. It also recommends 8000mi oil changes but I think they should say 8000km.
