Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

If you or your passenger stand at more than six-feet tall, no problem: you'll fit in the front of an XCeed just fine. Head and leg room is generous and the space on offer is similar to what you’ll find in the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf

There are also good-sized door bins, a decent glovebox, two cupholders and plenty of trays for all your accoutrements.

The exception here is with the plug-in PHEV. It loses a fair amount of boot space (the total drops to 291 litres) due to the hybrid battery that lurks under the floor, reducing luggage capacity to less than that of the regular Ceed hatch.

You cannot get a height-adjustable boot floor with the PHEV, but it’s standard on the non-hybrid versions. When it’s raised, it irons out the step that’s created when you fold the rear seats down. It also reduces the load lip and the effort of lifting heavy items in or out.
