Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Despite having quite a narrow pedal area, there's still enough room for you to rest your left leg. There's plenty of shoulder room in the front, too, although head room is borderline for anyone more than around 6ft tall.

However, things are less impressive in the rear; once through the narrow gap past the tilt-and-slide front chairs, taller occupants will find their knees splayed and their head pushed forward by the sloping roofline. In truth, the back seats are really best suited to smaller people and on short journeys. Whoever sits back there will find the rear windows are much smaller than they appear from that outside.

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