Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Up front there's a reasonable amount of space and storage is okay for a city car; there are a couple of cup holders and some (fairly shallow) door bins. The tall body means head room is good, but leg room isn't generous. The Hyundai i10 is roomier among city cars, and the MG ZS is in the same price range, too, and offers a lot more space.

That's even more the case when you move to the rear, where the Dacia Duster also has a distinct advantage. Rear leg room in the Panda is tight, and trying to seat three adult passengers in the back will be a proper old squeeze.

The Panda’s boot is a practical shape. In terms of outright capacity, though, it’s smaller than those of the i10 and Volkswagen Up. Again, you could buy far more space for similar money by looking at SUVs like the Duster and ZS. As standard, the Panda features a 60/40 split-folding rear bench, but the seats don’t slide or recline.
