Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Inside, there’s plenty of room for seven adults. Firstly, the two front seats are extremely accommodating in the realms of both head and leg room, while the middle row of three individual seats will also manage three large adults without any great issue. The two fold-out seats in the third row aren’t quite so roomy, mainly in the head room department; they will still fit tall adults when required, but anyone above six feet won’t want to do a long journey in them. Overall space is very similar to a Ford Galaxy and much better than the Citroen Grand C4 Spacetourer or smaller Volkswagen Touran.

Access to the rear seats is provided via a pair of very practical sliding doors, which allow people to get in and out so much more easily in tight car parks than would be the case with more usual hinged doors. As an optional extra you can add electric operation to the rear doors, but it’s pricey and, as they’re not exactly heavy to slide, we wouldn’t bother.
