Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

The Fortwo’s interior is small, but there's still enough room for a couple of tall adults to get pretty comfortable. There’s some storage space, too, with small door pockets, two cupholders and a little glovebox.

Boot space is claimed to be up to 260 litres, which is small, but about as much as you get in a Seat Mii Electric. The Cabrio's is even smaller at 190 litres. Both are just big enough to cram a couple of carry-on suitcases on board, after a bit of squeezing and shoving. 

Of course, being the Fortwo model, there are no rear seats. If you need an electric city car that can carry up to four passengers then check out the Mii, VW e-Up and Skoda Citigo e iV. If you want something seriously spacious for not a vast amount more dosh, then try the MG ZS EV, which is comparatively massive.
