Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
The sports SUV class includes some huge cars, like the Audi SQ7, so the Formentor isn’t going to absorb people and their things as well as that. But among its key rivals, such as the BMW X2 M35i and Volkswagen T-Roc R, it’s pretty roomy.
There’s absolutely loads of head room in the front and its seats slide back a long way, too. In fact, we can confidently say that, no matter how tall you are (within the bounds of reason), you’ll fit just fine. And you’ll find an array of storage spots for all your accessories as well.
And if you’re thinking that the Formentor’s rakish rear roofline is bound to make it a less practical choice than its rivals, you’re in for a surprise. Two tall adults fit just fine in the back, with as much rear leg room as they’d have in the T-Roc R and enough head room.
The boot is a bit bigger than the T-Roc R’s – 420 litres plays 392 litres when both cars have their rear seats in place – but the X2 M35i beats that with 470 litres. Still, expect the Formentor’s boot to deal happily with the obvious requirements of holiday luggage, a buggy or your golf clubs. And if you’re off skiing, there’s a ski hatch for poking the obvious through, and there are 60/40 split rear seats for when you have something larger to transport.
