Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
Unless you’re exceptionally tall, you’ll fit just fine in the front of the Ford Puma.
It's not as roomy as the Volkswagen T-Roc though – that car has a few more centimetres of head room, along with a slightly broader interior that provides more shoulder room between the driver and front passenger.
It’s also a pity that there’s no ski hatch in the Puma, as there is in the T-Roc, or other neat touches, like the sliding rear seats in the Volkswagen T-Cross.
You can fit six carry-on-sized suitcases in the Puma's main boot compartment – one fewer than you’ll squeeze into a Kamiq or T-Roc. The Puma has a trick up its sleeve, though. If you lift up its boot floor, you’ll find a large well underneath that can swallow two more cases.
The boot floor can clip to the rear seatbacks so you can stand two sets of golf clubs or a couple of large pot plants upright in the well. There’s even a removable plug at the bottom, so you can hose out any mud afterwards.
The boot floor is height-adjustable. When it's set to its highest position and the rear seats are folded down, there's no step in the floor of the extended load bay and only a very small lip at the boot entrance. The tailgate-mounted parcel shelf lifts up when the boot is opened to give excellent access.
