Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

The Kia Niro EV is a fine choice for families, with plenty of space inside for four tall adults. Even five won’t feel too squished thanks to a completely flat floor in the rear seat area – that means that whoever sits in the middle doesn’t have to splay their feet either side of a big hump.

Things are significantly better than in the Peugeot e-2008, although you can't stretch out to the extent that you can in the Skoda Enyaq iV. You can’t adjust the angle of the rear seat backrests like you can in the larger Kia EV6 either, but you can fold the seatbacks down (in a 60/40 split) when you need extra boot space.
