How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Even if you’re well over six feet tall, you won't feel your hair brushing the ceiling, and the seats slide back far enough to accommodate anyone with long legs. Shoulder room is better than in many small hatchbacks, making the Ibiza feel as roomy as many cars from the class above.

The front door bins aren’t the biggest but they will take a large water bottle. There are also two cupholders between the front seats, along with a cubbyhole in front of the gearlever for your phone and keys. The glovebox is a decent size, too.

Boot space

The Ibiza has one of the biggest boots in the small-car class – there's more space for luggage than in the Fiesta and almost as much as in a Skoda Fabia. We managed to fit an impressive five carry-on suitcases below the parcel shelf.

If you need even more space, you can always fold down the rear seats, although doing so creates a fairly large step up from the main boot floor. This is something that could be remedied by a height-adjustable boot floor, but unfortunately you can’t get one – even on the posher trim levels.
