Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Although the Corsa-e is a small car, even tall drivers will find enough space up front. Head and leg room is good, and the interior is wide enough to not risk an elbow fight between front-seat occupants.

In the back, meanwhile, things compare pretty favourably to its Mini Electric and Renault Zoe rivals; it provides more head room than either, and good leg room, too. Overall, children and those of modest stature will be fine, but a pair of larger adults won't want to spend too long in the back. To add a third would be a real squeeze, although the middle seat is at least softly cushioned. Every Corsa-e has five doors, so access to the rear seats is no problem.

Fortunately, the Corsa-e doesn’t compromise on interior or boot space compared with its petrol-powered stablemate, even though it has to accommodate a sizeable battery. The only concessions are that it can’t carry a spare wheel, and there’s no underfloor storage in the boot. Overall, it offers more luggage space than a Mini Electric, but the Renault Zoe’s boot is bigger.
