Space & practicality

How it copes with people and clutter

There’s an adequate amount of leg and head room, although really tall people may feel a little cramped in the front seats. Storage cubbies abound, including large door bins with integrated bottle holders, two cupholders ahead of the gearlever, a useful storage tray for a phone and a front centre armrest with an integral storage compartment.

The boot is slightly smaller than the conventional Outlander's due to the packaging of the hybrid system. The second row of seats fold completely flat, and with them all down there’s a vast amount of load space.

The Outlander’s flexible seats make it an ideal choice if you’re looking for a practical SUV. The second row splits in a conventional 60/40 fashion. As a result, you can keep some seats in position if you’re loading longer items or drop all of them flat to create a huge load bay. The rear seats also recline. The front passenger seat folds flat – this might come in handy for those longer loads.

There's high boot lip that can make loading heavy items tricky. Fortunately, the opening is wide and the boot itself is free from obstructions, making it easy to slide things in. An electric tailgate is standard.
