The Leaf beats its closest peers for luggage space; it managed to swallow seven carry-on suitcases in our tests, compared with the six you can fit in the Zoe or e-Golf. That’s mainly because the Leaf’s boot is much longer than its rivals’.
The space isn’t particularly clever, though; there’s an enormous lip at the boot entrance and a step in the floor of the extended load bay when you fold down the rear seats. However, there are handy nets at each side of the boot for keeping the charging cables neatly tucked away.
The range-topping Tekna model gets a Bose sound system that uses some of the boot space for its whopping great amplifier.
