Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

It’s here that the Korando really scores. There may be longer cars from Kia and Hyundai in its class, but none can match it for interior width. This allows five adults to travel in comfort, and the three in the back to travel without too much clashing of elbows. Helping rear space further is a flat floor that means the middle passenger isn’t forced to straddle a transmission tunnel. Head and leg room are also impressive for those in the back. 

A smattering of useful storage areas add further to the Korando’s practical feel, with a deep storage area under the armrest between the front seats and a pair of cupholders behind the gear selector, as well as a USB-equipped cubby for your phone below the climate controls. The door pockets are a reasonable size and there are cupholders in the rear armrest, too. There are no USB sockets for rear-seat passengers, but there is a 12v socket.

There’s another 12v socket in a boot that matches many rivals in capacity. There's also an adjustable boot floor that eliminates any load lip and makes it easy to load heavy items. The rear seats can also be folded flat to create an even bigger area that you’ll easily be able to slide flatpack furniture into.
