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 Puma ST. It's not as roomy as the physically larger Volkswagen T-Roc R, mind, which has a few centimetres more head room, along with a slightly broader interior that provides more shoulder room between the driver and front passenger.
There’s plenty of stowage space, thanks to decent-sized door bins, a cubby in front of the gear lever, another one below the front armrest and a couple of cupholders between the front seats.
Despite the front seats being quite a bit beefier than the standard Puma pews, there's still plenty of leg room in the rear. However, if you’re six foot plus you’ll find that head room is a little more limited than in the T-Roc.
Like the standard Puma, the ST can accommodate six carry-on-sized suitcases in the main boot compartment and two underneath the boot floor thanks to Ford’s fantastic MegaBox system – an 80-litre storage area that has a plug hole in the bottom so it can be easily hosed down. That makes it quite a bit more accommodating than the T-Roc R, which can only carry five carry-on bags.
The rear bench folds in a 60/40 split, but there’s no option to slide or recline the rear seat, or to upgrade it to a more useful 40/20/40 split.
