Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
Those sitting up front will have little to grumble about when it comes to space. There’s a generous amount of leg and head room for taller passengers, plus, there’s enough width between the seats to prevent elbows from bashing over the centre console.
Storage space includes a pair of cupholders, a roof-mounted sunglasses holder, long cubbies in the doors, a large glovebox and a tray for your phone. The cubby underneath the centre armrest is disappointingly shallow, though.
The boot of the CX-60 is uniform in shape and offers 570 litres with the rear seats up and 1726 litres with them down. That’s enough to fit in luggage for a weekend trip away and beats the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and the Lexus NX. However, it’s not a vast deal more than CX-5’s 522-1,638 litres. Still, there’s no load lip to contend with and the opening is wide and square in shape, making it easy to load items in.
Thoughtful features include a storage net on the side to prevent smaller items rolling around, and a 12v power socket. If you need more space, there are levers on the side to help fold down the rear seat backrests remotely, which split-fold 40/20/40.
