Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

We’d recommend avoiding the optional panoramic glass roof if you’re tall, or are planning to carry any passengers who are. Yes, it floods the interior with light, but it badly compromises head room to the point that anyone much taller than 6ft might struggle to fit.

You probably won't have any complaints about the leg room available, though, and there are plenty of cubbies dotted around for stashing keys, coins and phones. You’ll also find a couple of good-size cupholders in front of the gearlever.

Shine Plus cars also feature a fold-flat front passenger seat for those occasions when you need to carry really long items, such as flatpack furniture or a ladder.

Boot space

If you want a small SUV but need a big boot, the C3 Aircross is a better bet than most. Its load bay is longer and taller than the one in the Seat Arona, for example.

In fact, we managed to fit six carry-on suitcases below the parcel shelf, whereas the Arona swallowed five. Then again, we got seven in the Skoda Kamiq and eight in the Ford Puma.

Meanwhile, entry-level C-Series cars are the only ones to miss out on a two-level boot floor that makes it easy to slide in heavy items by minimising the loading lip when you don’t need maximum boot space.
