Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
While there’s adequate leg and head room for most, the limited seat height adjustment will have really tall people feeling a little cramped.
More positively, storage cubbies abound, including large door bins with integrated bottle holders, two cupholders in front of the gearlever, a useful storage tray for a phone, and a front centre armrest with an integrated storage compartment.
Seat folding and flexibility
The Outlander’s third row of seats splits 50/50 and its second row splits in a conventional 60/40 fashion. Such flexible seating makes it an ideal choice if you’re looking for a versatile SUV; it allows you to accommodate a mixture of passengers and bulky loads, or drop all of the rear seats flat to create a huge load bay.
The second-row seats also recline and slide back and forth; enabling you to prioritise space for those in the second or third rows.
