How it copes with people and clutter

It’s not easy to get into the i8, because you have to duck under the butterfly doors, clamber over the tall sill and slide yourself into the low-slung sports seats – something that requires a degree of athleticism. Once seated, however, you’ll find that there’s plenty of room for those in the front and the seats are comfortable.

By contrast, the two rear seats are really only for occasional use or for children, because they’re cramped and hard to access. Leg and head room are severely limited, although you do get Isofix fittings for both rear seats.
