Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Although the e-208 is a relatively small car, even tall people should find enough space in the front. Head and leg room is plentiful, and the interior is wide enough to not risk an elbow fight between front-seat occupants. 

There’s also a decent amount of storage space, including good-sized door bins, various cubbies, and a tray at the bottom of the dashboard. Above that, there's a hidden compartment that clicks open to reveal another handy storage spot – it's also where you'll find the wireless phone charging pad if you've ticked that option box.

Leg room in the back is reasonable, and there’s a generous amount of space for passengers’ feet under the seats in front. And, while head room is a bit tight, it's better than in the Fiat 500, Mini Electric and Renault Zoe. Just make sure you avoid adding a panoramic sunroof because this lowers the height of the ceiling quite a bit. 

Both the e-208 and the closely related Corsa-e have relatively small rear door apertures that can make it a bit awkward to climb aboard. Mind you, at least there are rear doors; the rival Fiat 500 Mini Electric are available in three-door form only. 

If you’re wondering if there's a practicality compromise in choosing an e-208 over a petrol or diesel version when it comes to luggage space, there isn’t. Fossil-fuelled or electric, every 208 has the same boot capacity. That means you'll be able to carry more luggage than you would in a Mini Electric, although a Zoe will carry even more. Unfortunately, there’s no handy height-adjustable boot floor like there is on the Mini, though.
