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.
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.
