Space & practicality

How it copes with people and clutter

Despite the GS’s quality and ergonomic issues, its interior is certainly spacious. Up front, it’s easy to get comfortable in the driver’s seat and there’s plenty of room for all shapes and sizes. Head and leg room is good in the rear, too, although we did find the floor higher than you might expect, forcing your knees upwards.

The boot is practical, offering more room than a Nissan Qashqai and only slightly less than a Kia Sportage. Fold the standard reclining rear seat and you’ll reveal a load bay that’s virtually flat. While that’s good for sliding in flatpack furniture, the boot opening does narrow around the bottom edges, making loading a little trickier.

The range-topper, but not particularly recommendable given its higher price pushes the GS closer to its better rivals. Adds luxuries such as electric door mirrors, leather seats and sat-nav, but we...View trim
