Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
There's less head room in the front of the Renault Captur than there is in the Ford Puma, Skoda Kamiq or VW T-Cross. It's still okay for six-footers, though, and because the interior is relatively broad, you won’t be rubbing shoulders with your passenger.
As for storage, there’s a big tray in front of the gearlever, although we wish the cubby under the central armrest was bigger.
Seat folding and flexibility
You can slide the Captur’s rear bench back and forth to prioritise either boot space or rear leg room (as you can in the VW T-Cross). It's a useful feature, and while the base slides as one piece, the rear seatbacks fold in a conventional 60/40 split.
The Countryman is better, though. Its rear seats not only slide, but also recline, plus they split 40/20/40, giving you even greater flexibility for your seating and luggage needs.
