You’ll find generous enough leg and headroom in the front of the EcoSport, however, it’s quite a narrow car so it might feel a bit tight if you’re broad-shouldered. It’s an easy car to get into, though. The doors open wide and the seats are at the right height for most people to simply step inside, without having to climb up or bend down.
In the back seats, there’s space for two average-size adults to sit behind people of similar height. Younger children should have plenty of space, and the relatively large windows let in lots of light and give everyone a good view out.
Unusually, the boot lid opens to the side of the car, like a house door, rather than lifting up. That won’t be an issue if you drive front-first into a space in a car park, but access could be tricky if another car is parked close behind yours. The boot itself is a good size, big enough to hold a family’s weekly food shopping or a couple’s holiday luggage.
The boot floor is height-adjustable. At the higher level, there’s less of a lip between the floor and back bumper. At the lower level, there’s more capacity and the extra depth is useful for carrying taller loads. The back seats fold down if you need to haul anything bigger and bulkier. There are also some clever storage spaces – including a drawer under the front passenger seat.
