There is an impressive array of different ways you can rearrange the rear two rows in the Vivaro Life – all eight seats are on runners, too, so you can fine-tune the position of each. As an option, you can have swivelling mid-row seats and a fairly large fold-out table which, if you were good with your Transformers toys as a kid, you’ll be able to rearrange in a kind-of mini conference orientation where the middle row faces the rear row with the table in the middle.
This seating flexibility also helps with practicality. For example, you can slide each seat in the third row individually, allowing for numerous re-arrangements if you want to cram as much luggage as possible. Or you can remove each seat to open up a truly huge space that is roughly twice the size of the most capacious SUVs, and also fairly square so you can stuff pretty much anything in there.
There’s also plenty of storage for things you’ll need on a journey, with numerous cubbies dotted around the interior. They’re just found where you’d expect them, though – a prime example is the small cubby above the glovebox that your front passenger can use to store their phone. Bear in mind, though, that the extra storage in the tops of the door cards is very easy to grab when you’re reaching for the door close pull – the latter is actually lower down on the door card.
