Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Unlike some of its rivals, the X-Class is only available with a five-seat cab. While this might alienate a few buyers who'd like to trade rear-seat space for load bay length, the vast majority of pick-ups in the UK are sold in this form.

A couple of tall adults will have all the head room they need in the front. Another two adults will stay comfortable in the back on a long journey, too, with good head, leg and shoulder room, although the floor is slightly raised. Even so, rear space is very similar in size to that of the Nissan Navara and slightly bigger than the rear space in the five-seat Toyota Hilux.
