Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
You’re unlikely to want any more leg or head room than you get in the front of the E-tron Sportback, and its front seats are a good distance apart to prevent their occupants from rubbing shoulders or banging elbows. Even the wide centre console, which incorporates several handy storage spaces, doesn’t get in the way of the driver’s left knee like it can in some SUVs.
However, compared with their experience in the regular E-tron SUV, passengers in the back of the Sportback will find things to be a little more cramped. By adopting a more heavily tapered roofline, the Sportback loses 20mm of head room; that might not sound like a lot, but those approaching 6ft tall will feel their hair brushing the roof lining.
