Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
Up front in the Rexton, you get a sizeable storage area under the front armrest, big door pockets and a tray for odds and ends in front of the gearlever. Head and leg room are very good and there’s loads of width, so you won’t be clanging elbows with your neighbour.
The middle row gets plenty of head room, leg room and width, but a high-set floor means it’s less comfortable than you might expect from the external dimensions. Anyone forced into the central seating position won’t want to be there for long because of the fold-down armrest protruding into their back. A Peugeot 5008 is much more accommodating, with three separate seats that slide and recline individually – a feature the Rexton lacks.
