How it copes with people and clutter
The Hyundai i20N might be at the smaller end of the hot hatch category but it has more than enough leg and head room for six-footers in the front. Storage-wise, you get trays, a couple of cupholders and a reasonable glovebox, but the door bins are small.
The i20N comes with five doors only (you can buy a three-door Ford Fiesta ST), so you should be easy enough to get into the back seats, where there's a surprising amount of leg room. Even tall adults will have a gap between their knees and the back of the seat in front, whereas they’ll probably need to position their legs on either side of the front seat to fit in the ST. There’s not a vast amount of head room going spare in the back of the i20N, but it’s enough for six-footers.
