There’s lots of adjustment for the driver’s seat, so you’ll find a comfortable driving position. You won’t find decent rear visibility too easy to come by, though, because the rear screen is tiny and the pillars are thick. The dash is frustrating – it has touch-sensitive icons on the fascia rather than buttons, but they’re awkward to use and not quite sensitive enough.
Chevrolet VOLT Hatchback space & practicality
Considering all the technology the Volt is carrying, and the space it takes up, the cabin is reasonably roomy, with lots of head- and legroom. However, many rivals are roomier, and most have three seats in the back while the Volt has only two. The boot is reasonably spacious at 310 litres.
Chevrolet VOLT Hatchback equipment
The Volt comes packed with luxury kit, which takes a little of the sting out of the high price. You get air-conditioning, Bluetooth, keyless entry, alloys, cruise control and a reversing camera as standard, along with a DAB digital radio and heated leather seats. Options include sat-nav.
