If you’re expecting the Partner Tepee’s commercial roots to come into their own here, you’d be quite right. The simple rear suspension may not do the handling any favours, but it allows for a huge square load area and a floor that’s free from big humps and lumps. If you need more space, the rear seats can be folded or removed entirely.
The boot floor is close to the ground and there’s no loading lip, making it easy to stick heavy items in. If you don’t need or have the space to open the hatch, you can even open the rear screen, just like in a BMW 5 Series Touring.
There’s loads of leg room for tall drivers up front, with a decent amount of elbow room. Head room isn’t an issue, either; the roof is so high that even tall drivers can wear a hat (or three).
Move to the rear seats and you’ll find ample leg room and head room. Carrying three is a breeze, too; the floor is virtually flat and Outdoor models get three individual rear seats that are all equally wide. Those seats are also easy to get in and out of, thanks to twin sliding doors with big apertures.
