Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

There’s plenty of room up front for even taller drivers to get comfortable, although the Cross Country has fractionally less head and legroom than the Audi A3 or VW Golf. Avoid the optional panoramic roof if you’re particularly lanky, though, as it cuts into head room.

Storage space is also good, and there’s a shallow, rubberised cubby hidden behind the centre console that’s ideal for storing parking change, as well as space inside the centre armrest for your mobile phone. The glovebox also gets clever touches such as a pen holder, a sunglasses compartment and a drained compartment for the ice scraper.
