Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

You won’t be disappointed with the space on offer inside the Impreza. There’s plenty of room for the driver and front passenger to stretch out and get comfortable, and the generous door pockets, decent glovebox, two cupholders and large cubbys beneath the front armrest and at the base of the dashboard are also welcome.

Adult rear occupants will find good head room on offer and only the particularly tall will want more leg room. Even so, while the Impreza is on a par with a Volkswagen Golf or Ford Focus in terms of rear space, a Skoda Octavia has far more leg room if you regularly carry tall adults in the back.

The Impreza’s boot, meanwhile, is average for the class; it’s bigger than the Focus's, similar to that in the Golf and Seat Leon, but dwarfed by the cavernous boot in both the Octavia and Honda Civic.

All Imprezas get 60/40 split-folding rear seats as standard that lie flat when down – something that can be achieved via levers located near the rear headrests – so opening up the space is easy.
