Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

There’s enough space in the front for tall adults to get comfortable. There’s a couple of small cupholders and a shallow cubby for pens and other oddments above the glovebox, while the convenient tray in front of the gear selector incorporates two USB ports and a 12V socket.

With five doors, rear seat access is easy and shorter folk will be more than comfortable. Tall adults, though, will be a bit squeezed for head room and, if there’s a taller person sitting in front, leg room will be limited as well. The Volkswagen e-Golf and Kia e-Niro are both much more accommodating in the back. 

The Zoe’s boot is roughly the same size as the e-Golf's. You'll easily be able to carry a small buggy or big weekly shop, but you'll fit even more in the boot of a Nissan Leaf. We were able to fit six cabin-sized suitcases in the boot, while the Leaf can take seven. 

There's an annoyingly big lip at the boot entrance, though, and it's also a shame that the rear seatbacks fold in one big, clumsy piece, rather than the more convenient 60/40 split you get in most small cars.
