Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Front-seat passengers in the Tesla Model 3 are unlikely to have any complaints about space, no matter how tall they are.

There’s also loads of room for odds and ends, with a couple of lidded cubbies between the front seats, as well as front door bins that can each take a big bottle of water.

There are no clever features, such as sliding or reclining rear seats in the Model 3, but then there aren’t in its traditional executive car rivals, either.

Boot space

The Model 3 is a saloon, so its boot aperture isn’t huge. However, there’s more space for luggage than you’ll find in conventional executive rivals, such as the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4, as well as electric alternatives, including the Polestar 2 and EV6. 

That’s thanks partly to a huge well under the main boot floor, but also the extra storage under the bonnet ('frunk' in Tesla speak). In total, we managed to squeeze in an impressive total of 10 carry-on suitcases into the Model 3's two boots. A buggy or a couple of sets of golf clubs shouldn't prove a problem, either.
