Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
Despite being the ‘baby’ of the McLaren range, the 570S is actually slightly bigger than the discontinued 650S on which it is loosely based. Changes to the carbon fibre tub bring the sill 80mm lower and the doors open wider to improve interior access. Despite the low roofline, head room is good, and there’s plenty of space between the driver and passenger.
No one is ever going to buy a mid-engined, two-seat sports car for sheer practicality, but McLaren has still provided a surprising amount of stowage space. There’s a 144-litre boot (bigger than that of a 911 or R8) in the nose of the 570S, and you can fit a bag of golf clubs behind the rear seats. There’s also a glovebox and various cubbyholes in the cabin.
