Space & practicality

How it copes with people and clutter

While the wide transmission tunnel fits snugly to the driver’s left, the front cabin is otherwise roomy. It’s not such good news in the two back seats, where once they’ve climbed past the tilt-and-slide front chairs, anyone near six feet tall will find their knees splayed and their head pushed forward by the sloping roofline. They’re fine for kids, though.

Both the RC F and RC 200t offer around 370 litres of boot space - on the low side for this class - while the RC 300h offers less still at 340 litres. The latter models also feature 60/40 splitting and folding rear seats to boost cargo space, but the RC F does not. The boot itself has a high lip but is deep and regular in shape.
