Space & practicality

How it copes with people and clutter

Both people in the front will have no issues with leg room, and neither will they struggle for head room. Unless the front seats are fully slid back, rear passengers won’t grumble about leg room either, although the sloping roofline does limit head room at the back for those over six feet tall. If this could be an issue, look at the Skoda Superb, which has the most generous interior space in this class.

There are plenty of storage options for your odds and sods, from the large glovebox and door bins that’ll fit a bottle of water to the tray for your mobile in front of the gearlever. There’s also a sizeable lidded cubby in the centre console.

At 483 litres, the boot is a good size – big enough to swallow a couple of large suitcases, if not a match for the boot in the Superb or Ford Mondeo. You get 60/40 split-folding rear seats as standard; these are easy to release, thanks to the convenient leavers at the top of the boot opening, and when folded down they create a usefully flat extended load bay. The downsides? Being a saloon, the 6 leaves you with a narrower aperture through which to load bulkier items, making it more compromised than its hatchback rivals.
