The XC40’s boot has a 460-litre capacity, which appears underwhelming compared with the Tiguan’s and X1’s. However, its commendably square proportions make packing easy and, with the large under-floor storage area added into the mix (if you don’t have the optional spare wheel fitted), we managed to fit seven carry-on suitcases inside – the same number as in a Tiguan.
What’s more, there’s no load lip to heave luggage over. If you opt for the Convenience Pack, you can fold up part of the boot floor and fix it in a vertical position, creating a divide to stop smaller items from sliding around. This also provides handy hooks for hanging shopping bags.
