There’s lots of adjustment for the driver’s seat, so you’ll find a comfy driving position. You won’t find decent rear visibility to easy to come by, though, because the rear screen is tiny and the pillars are thick. The dash is frustrating – it has touch-sensitive icons on the fascia rather than buttons, but they aren’t quite sensitive enough.
Vauxhall Ampera Hatchback space & practicality
Considering all the technology the Ampera is carrying, and the space it takes up, the cabin is impressively roomy. The front seats have lots of head- and legroom, and so do the ones in the back, although there are only two of them. The boot is a half-decent size at 300 litres.
Vauxhall Ampera Hatchback equipment
There are three trims to choose from. The basic car is our favourite - it comes with plenty including alloys, cruise control and a DAB radio. Mid-spec Positiv trim gets heated leather seats and parking sensors, while Electron versions add sat-nav, but these version add too much to the already lofty price.
