Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

You’re unlikely to be short of head or leg room in the front of the Mustang Mach E, even if you’re over six feet tall. If you do need more head room, the Volkswagen ID.4 has several more inches.

The Mach E's front seats are mounted a good distance apart to accommodate a wide centre console (with cupholders, the wireless charging pad and some useful cubbies) so you won’t be rubbing shoulders or banging elbows with the person next to you.

The front door bins are pretty shallow, though, and there's a separate and rather curious upper section. The opening is far too narrow for an adult hand to fit through but the compartment is long enough that you’d need to get your hand through to reach what's at the back. Maybe the answer is to carry a pot of Vaseline around...  

The Mach E is styled like a coupé but it has more rear head room than the Tesla Model 3 and much more than the Polestar 2 offers. Once again, the ID.4 has even more head room, but the Mach E shades it for knee room in the back so it’s great for six-footers here, too. It also has plenty of space for feet under the front seats and a completely flat floor, which is ideal if you are the middle passenger.

In terms of luggage capacity, the Mach E’s main boot at the rear is 402 litres. That's big enough to fit seven carry-on cases under the tonneau cover, which is more than the Kia e-Niro can manage. That said, the ID.4 is bigger and fits nine cases, but it doesn't have the Mach E's useful height-adjustable boot floor.  

There is also a ‘frunk’ – a front boot – with an additional 81 litres of space. It's the perfect place to shove the charging cables and still has enough space left over for a few shopping bags. Or, as it's designed to be hosed out and features a drain plug, the perfect place to store muddy boots and wet clothes. 

If you need extra room, the rear seatbacks split and fold down in a basic 60/40 configuration. There’s no ski hatch, which the ID.4 has, and there are other rivals in the large electric class that are available with more flexible 40/20/40 split-folding seats.
