Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front seat occupants have plenty of head and leg room and there’s space for a six-footer to get comfortable. It’s not such good news for those in the back, though; the sloping roofline puts head room at a premium for those over six feet tall, and shoulder room is also tight. Leg room is also less generous than in the Skoda Octavia Estate or Toyota Corolla Touring Sports, let alone the huge Skoda Superb Estate.

Storage wise, there are decently sized door bins up front that can rake a 500ml drinks bottle. There is also a pair of cupholders, a cubbyhole under the centre armrest and two reasonable sized gloveboxes – a larger one on the passenger side and a smaller one on the driver’s side.

 The boot itself is smaller than you’ll find in an Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer, Toyota Corolla Touring Sports, Ford Focus Estate and especially the Skoda Octavia Estate, and having its batteries placed beneath the floor makes the E-Tech plug-in hybrid’s boot even smaller. The resulting load area is still bigger than the Kia Ceed Sportwagon PHEV’s, but nothing like as big as the Superb iV’s. Every model will take several suitcases or a large supermarket shop with space to spare, though, and lowering the rear seats extends it further. The flat floor makes loading heavy or bulky items a breeze, as does having no loading lip to contend with.
