Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Once upon a time the Fiesta was a very small car, but at just over 4m in length it’s no longer the petite little hatchback it once was. Total length is 4065mm, a good proportion of which is forward of the windscreen pillar, for crash protection reasons.

The interior is large but not overly generous and the rear loadspace is best described as modest. The length in the rear is 1283mm, with 1281mm at the widest part making it almost a perfect square. Maximum height is 923mm.

This all sounds fairly generous, however, it’s worth remembering that the boot hatch is considerably smaller than the space inside, with an opening height of just 613mm and opening width of 948mm. There’s also just 984mm between the wheel arches. That means the Fiesta Van is capable of taking a total load volume of just 0.96m3.

If that sounds small, it is worth noting that it is considerably better than the Renault Zoe, which manages just half the volume and a 387kg payload. For comparison, the Ford Transit Courier has a payload allowance of 660kg and a maximum load volume of 2.3m3. 

The Fiesta Van’s rear is separated from the cabin by a half-height bulkhead with upper mesh section and there are four load lashing points.
