How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The ASX feels adequately roomy in the front. Providing you’re not well north of six-feet tall, you will find enough head and leg room, but anyone especially lofty will find the Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq more accommodating all round. Access is good thanks to wide door openings, but we’d avoid the panoramic roof that’s standard on Exceed models – it makes head room tight for anyone much over six-foot.

The glovebox is a sensible size, as is the cubby under the central armrest. There are also two cup holders next to the gearlever, and another in front of it, but the door bins are narrow and will take only a small bottle of water.

Seat folding and flexibility

The standard 60/40-split rear seats are par for the course, but they don’t offer the versatility of those rivals with rear seats that split in a 40/20/40 fashion. The Karoq is one of those rivals, and you can even remove its rear seats entirely for added flexibility. 

Nor do the ASX's rear seats slide or recline like the Karoq's, and there is no option of a folding front passenger seat for those occasions when you need to carry really long items while only the driver's seat gets height adjustment on all trims.
