Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Despite its steeply sloping windscreen and slightly raised driving position, the Ford Fiesta has plenty of head room in the front. That said, we’d resist the temptation to add the optional panoramic glass roof if you’re really tall – it reduces head room noticeably. 

Leg room is good, so you’ll have no complaints, even from friends measuring more than six feet tall. There’s enough elbow space for two broad adults to sit side by side comfortably. 

Ford Fiesta 2022 interior rear seats

Seat folding and flexibility

Ford hasn’t given the Fiesta any special seating tricks to make its interior more versatile. All models get a simple fixed rear seatbase with a backrest that splits 60/40 and folds down – that’s par for the course in this class. The Jazz has much more versatile rear seats, with seat bases that flip up to get tall items onboard with no drama, such as a pot plant.

All versions come with two-way manually adjustable front passenger seats but that’s upgraded to four-way adjustment if you opt for any of the Vignale trims. Those trim levels also add heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.
