Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Unless you’re seven-feet tall, like Shaquille O'Neal, you'll be fine in the front. And although six-footers will notice that the roof curves downwards towards the rear of the car, reducing head room in the back seats a little, there's so much space for feet and knees that there's no need to sit bolt upright — if needs be you can slouch slightly to avoid your head brushing the roof lining.

In terms of storage, you’ll find two decently sized cup holders located between the front seats, an armrest with a storage cubby inside, as well as a pair of usable door pockets that are just about big enough to accept drinks bottles or travel cups.

A compact rear suspension design, along with the positioning of the car’s batteries beneath the rear seats, minimises intrusion into the boot and results in impressive luggage capacity that's a match for the Passat GTE — we fitted eight carry-on suitcases inside the Camry's boot with easy. Indeed, that's one more case than the Mondeo Hybrid Estate managed.

The rear seats fold in a 60/40 configuration and can be released using two toggles in the boot – ideal when you’re loading awkwardly shaped items from behind the car — but the opening through to the passenger compartment is relatively narrow.
