The Captur’s load space is impressively practical. There’s a variable-height boot floor on all models, which in its highest position brings the floor flush with the load lip. The boot opening is also a practical square shape, which helps make loading bulky items easy.
The standard sliding rear bench seat means you can vary the amount of boot space. Move the bench as far forward as it’ll go and you’re left with more space than a VW Golf can offer. However, you have to put the variable boot floor in its lowest position to avoid creating a cavern between the back of the rear bench and the boot floor, down which any small, loose items are likely to drop and roll around beneath the raised floor. With the boot floor dropped, the load bay is smooth all the way to the back of the rear bench.
Even with the bench slid all the way backwards, boot space will be fine for most normal everyday use; there’s enough room for a family’s weekly shopping, for example. If you’re planning to carry a child’s buggy, though, check that it’ll fit because some of the larger designs may be a squeeze.
