Space & practicality

How it copes with people and clutter

Two tall adults will have no problems in the front; there’s good head, leg and shoulder room, while each front door has a generous pocket. There’s also a large cubby at the base of dashboard for throwing in your phone and keys, as well as one beneath the central armrest.

In the back, there’s enough leg room for a couple more adults, but taller passengers might find their heads brushing the ceiling. An additional middle occupant will also have to contend with a raised floor and a protruding seatback that’s quite uncomfortable. At least each rear door also gets a generous pocket.

However, behind the rear seats sits a comparatively spacious boot. Access is very good and inside it’s a practical square shape and officially offers 553 litres, which is more than you’ll get from a Ford Mondeo Estate. The rear seats split in a 60/40 configuration and fold down as standard.

Bear in mind that the Skoda Superb Estate trumps both the i40 Tourer and Mondeo Estate for space and practicality in every single area.
