Finding a comfortable driving position is easy, thanks to a two-way adjustable steering wheel and a seat that can be cranked up and down. The dashboard is logically laid out, too, but forward visibility could be better. The windscreen pillars are surprisingly thick, and you can't easily see where its nose ends, so parking can be tricky.
Skoda Roomster MPV space & practicality
There are three individual seats in the rear, but the middle one is uncomfortably narrow. All three can be reclined, folded or removed, although the outer seats are quite heavy. Alternatively, with just the centre seat taken out, the other two can be moved inward to give more shoulder-room, and they also slide back and forth so you can choose the balance between legroom and luggage space.
Skoda Roomster MPV equipment
Entry-level Roomsters have electric front windows, a CD player and a socket for your MP3 player, but no remote door locking. That comes on SE models, along with air-conditioning, electric rear windows, parking sensors and a panoramic sunroof, while SE Plus models also have 15-inch alloy wheels, roof rails and climate control. Scout versions have 4x4-effect body mouldings and a leather steering wheel.
