How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

There’s more than enough leg and head room for a couple of tall adults up front. However, while shoulder room is far from tight, it’s worth noting that the A3 Saloon is narrower than the A4 and BMW 3 Series, while Skoda’s Superb is bigger again.

The simple dashboard design doesn’t conceal a huge number of cubbyholes, but you do get storage areas ahead of the gearlever and under the central armrest, plus a couple of cupholders in the centre console. The door pockets are each big enough for a large water bottle, too.
