Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

You’re unlikely to want for more leg or head room in the front of the E-tron. And the front seats are a good distance apart to ensure you don’t rub shoulders or bang elbows with the person beside you.

Even the wide centre console, which features several handy storage spaces, doesn’t cramp the space for your legs, and it's complemented by a large glovebox and door bins. 

Rear space

There’s more than enough space in the back for a pair of six-footers to get comfortable. And while this is also the case in the Jaguar I-Pace, the E-tron’s roof doesn’t curve downwards as dramatically as the Jag’s, so you’re less likely to feel claustrophobic.

Life is quite uncomfortable for the central rear passenger, though – their seat is narrow and has a harder backrest than the outer two.

There's also no seven-seat option, which there is in the rival Tesla Model X.

Seat folding and flexibility

The rear seatbacks split and fold down in a 40/20/40 arrangement, allowing you to transport longer items between two rear passengers. The I-Pace has a less versatile 60/40 arrangement.

What’s more, handy levers in the boot allow you to drop the E-tron’s rear seats from the luggage area, and while they lie at a slight angle once down, they don't leave you with a stepped floor area.

Boot space

There's a small lip at the boot entrance, but once you're over that you'll find a large, square load bay with a healthy amount of underfloor storage. In our tests, the E-tron manage to swallow eight carry-on sized suitcases below it's load cover, whereas the I-Pace could hold only seven. The Tesla Model 3 can manage 10 in total, while the Model S pushes that to 11. 

There's a second, smaller boot at the front of the E-tron, although it's really only big enough for the charging cables.
