Space & practicality

How it copes with people and clutter

Climb inside and it feels supremely spacious, no matter whether you’re in the front, middle or rear. There’s good storage in the form of deep door pockets, a good-sized glovebox, various cubbyholes and cupholders, plus a large area under the central armrest.

The middle row of seats has room for three six-foot adults in chairs that individually slide forward and backwards, as well as recline. That space is all the better for a low central tunnel and lots of foot space under the front seats. Pull a lever on the top of the outer seats and they tilt and slide forward to allow easy access to the third row.

Like the Seat Alhambra and Volkswagen Sharan, these sixth and seventh seats will fit full-size adults. There’s enough glass back there to prevent claustrophobia and each passenger gets a cubby box and their own cupholder.

The boot is huge. According to Ford’s figures, with the third-row seats up boot space is 300 litres. Convert it to a five-seater and the boot transforms to a vast 1301 litres, or a van-like 2339 litres with only the front seats in place.
