As soon as anyone says small car, that’s what you picture, but this category is not as little as its name implies.
In the front there is enough leg and head space for me and my taller husband, even with the sunroof. You’re not swimming with room and it’s not as spacious as an SUV, but nobody is uncomfortable.
If you are fitting a baby capsule in the back, the front passenger will have to compromise on leg space and move their seat forward, but there is more room than in a Mazda3.
My two children aged five and seven fit easily in the back seat, and I could fit back there with lots of room to spare, being 161cm. If you are taller and you’re sitting behind a taller front passenger you may have to turn knees slightly sideways but it’s still a comfortable drive.
The boot is a decent size for this category at 360 litres which means it passes the CarsGuide pram test.
You’ll be able to pop some groceries or school bags around the pram, too. If you are about to have a baby and are buying a pram we recommend you test the pram in the boot first to make sure it fits as they’re all different sizes.
