Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
The Volkswagen Taigo offers plenty of headroom and seats that slide a good way back for lots of legroom, so even people measuring north of six feet won’t find themselves struggling for space in the front. The width is impressive, and you won’t find you and your front-seat passenger rubbing shoulders.
There’s ample storage space up front, too. The Taigo has a decent-sized glove box, door bins that can swallow a large bottle of water, a deep cubby in the central armrest and a space for your phone in front of the gearstick, which doubles as a wireless charger on all trims.
Seat folding and flexibility
To help you load larger items, the Taigo's rear seats can be split 60/40 and folded flat. That’s pretty standard for the class but isn’t as versatile as the 40/20/40 split folding seats that you’ll find in the Mini Countryman.
Other than that, the Taigo’s rear seats don’t do anything fancy, like sliding backwards to make more space, something the Countryman and VW T-Cross both offer.
