Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

The Plug-in isn't as practical as the standard Prius – its boot is smaller on account of having to accommodate a bigger drive battery. The load space is particularly shallow as a result, but you can still expand it by flopping the rear seatbacks down. Helpfully, though, the car’s charging cable is stored in a compartment at the rearmost edge of the boot floor, so you’ll be unlikely to cover it with bags or cases.

There’s plenty of space up front for tall adults to get comfortable and rear leg room isn’t too bad at all, but head room is just as tight for adults as it is in the standard Prius – a consequence of the car’s steeply sloping roofline. All things considered, plug-in hybrid rivals such as the Skoda Superb iV and Volkswagen Passat GTE have better-appointed, more upmarket and more spacious interiors and cost a similar amount to buy.
