Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

It’s about time we discussed the Civic Saloon’s boot. Its opening is wide, but naturally nowhere as big – and therefore not as practical – as the hatchback’s. Its 519-litre capacity (up 41 litres on the hatchback) certainly looks impressive compared with the Golf’s 380 litres, but it's still some way behind the Skoda Octavia’s gargantuan 590-litre boot. It can be expanded, though, courtesy of a 60/40 split folding rear bench. It’s standard on all Civic Saloons and lies flat and level with the boot floor when folded.

Interior storage space is reasonably generous, with a decent-sized glovebox and door bins that will hold a large bottle of water. Meanwhile, the centre console between the driver and passenger incorporates a cubby/cupholder area with a sliding cover and a large bin beneath the central armrest.
