Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

While the Citroën e-C4 isn’t especially spacious up front, it’s roomier than it feels; the close proximity of the windscreen pillars can leave you feeling a little hemmed in, but, in reality, six-footers fit easily enough. That’s true even if you specify the optional panoramic glass roof, but if you’re super tall and still worried, there is a little more space in the front of the Volkswagen ID.3.

There are also some thoughtful storage touches, including a dedicated area for your smartphone and a tray that slides out of the passenger’s side of the dashboard, to which you can clip a tablet.

A ski hatch is only available on the top-spec Shine Plus trim, and cannot be added as an option, unlike with the regular C4.

Boot space

We were able to fit five carry-on suitcases beneath the e-C4’s parcel shelf – that’s better than the MX-30 and matches the capacity of the e-Niro and ID.3, but you can get more in the boot of a Nissan Leaf.  

The e-C4’s boot floor is height adjustable, with only a small lip to lift luggage over when it’s in its highest position. If you raise this up, it also levels out the extended boot floor when you drop the rear seat backs – the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense doesn’t have this feature, leaving you with an awkward step.

There’s also some useful under-floor storage for the charging cables, so the boot is free for luggage. Again, that’s not something the 3 Crossback has, and nor does the ID.3.
