Space & practicality

How it copes with people and clutter

Unusually for an MPV (but not for a van), the Spacetourer is available in three lengths. While the smallest XS is likely to feel cramped if you opt for three rows of seating (an option on all models), the M option has plenty of space for people as long as you don’t mind a very small boot or only two rows of seats.

As for the biggest XL, it can seat three rows of people in comfort, with room left for their luggage. Compared with a Seat Alhambra or Ford Galaxy, even the M variant feels much more spacious and is suitable for full-sized adults in all three rows.

Most versions come as standard with five seats (two in the front, three in the back), with three seats optional in the third row. Business Lounge models get two seats for the second row as standard with a sliding central armrest and the option of pop-out tray tables. Business versions get the option of a three-seat front bench to allow up to nine people to travel onboard.

The second and third-row seats can be slid backwards and forward and they can also be reclined to prioritise space or comfort. If you really want the maximum amount of space, the second and third rows can be removed entirely for a load area that’s as cavernous as – surprise, surprise – a van’s. Just bear in mind that the seats are pretty hefty, so we’d recommend calling on the help of a friend to remove them.

And if that wasn’t practical enough, there’s also a cornucopia of storage solutions dotted around the interior. There are door pockets that are some of the biggest we’ve ever come across, two gloveboxes, a cubby on the top of the dash and a handy shelf by the USB port that’s the perfect size for a smartphone.
