Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

In the front, you’d have to be Hagrid to feel cramped, because head and leg room are both excellent. What’s more, there’s plenty of storage space, including the usual allocation of two cupholders and a good-sized glovebox for your racing mitts.

Move to the back, and you'll find much more leg room than in a BMW M140i, Renault Mégane RS or Volkswagen Golf R. And while head room is merely acceptable, due to the sloping roofline, four six-footers will be perfectly comfortable, even on a long journey.

Topping off a very practical package is a boot that’s massive by class standards. It’ll easily swallow life’s mundane paraphernalia, such as pushchairs, shopping or suitcases for the family holiday. And when extra room is needed, the standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats lie completely flat.
