Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Even tall drivers will find comfort up front; head and leg room are fairly generous for what is quite a small car. Front storage space is ok, although the cubby hole under the central arm rest is a bit stingy. Handier is the storage tray at the bottom of the dash, where you can charge your phone wirelessly. There’s a couple of door bins, too.

Rear space

Leg room in the back is average, even though the curvature of the front seats is designed to help maximise kneeroom. There’s a lot of room to poke your feet under the seat in front, though. Many passengers will find head room a little tight and this will particularly be the case if you go for a sunroof; while the headlining behind it is sculpted to increase ceiling height, passengers are left staring at a bulge in the ceiling in front of their forehead where the sunroof’s mechanical bits are.

Children and those of modest stature will be fine, but two larger adults wouldn’t want to spend too long in the back. There’s a handy pair of USB ports, though, and, although the rear door openings are a little narrow, access to the back is fine.

Seat folding and flexibility

The rear seats fold and split 60/40 into two sections as standard. This is par for the course in the small car class, and there’s no option of a more practical 40/20/40 arrangement.

Boot space

The Corsa’s boot is a fine size for the class. The Skoda Fabia and Volkswagen Polo offer more outright capacity, but it offers more room than a Fiesta and you can load it with luggage without a struggle.
