How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

There’s more than enough space in the front of the Volkswagen ID.3. If you’re six feet tall, or even a bit more, you should have enough head and leg room. 

There’s pretty good storage space available, as well. A large chunk of that is in the centre console, which has various cubbies and the ubiquitous cup-holders. The glovebox is a decent size, as are the door bins.

Seat folding and flexibility

There’s not a huge amount to report here. You get 60/40-split rear seats as standard, which are not as useful as 40/20/40 seats, but the addition of a ski hatch does give you more options for carrying longer loads with passengers. Sadly, this handy load-through feature isn’t available in Life trim.

There's no option of sliding or reclining rear seats, which you can get in SUVs of an equivalent price.
