Audi e-tron Sportback boot space & seating

Compared to the standard e-tron, Audi has removed two centimetres of headroom from the rear seats and 45 litres of storage space from the boot. Still, the e-tron Sportback will swallow 615 litres of luggage in total – or 1,655 litres with the rear seats folded flat. Make no mistake, this is still a practical family car.

Audi e-tron Sportback interior space, storage & comfort

There’s loads of space to stretch out inside the e-tron Sportback – no matter whether you’re sitting in the front or the rear. The designers will tell you they’ve shaved just two centimetres of headroom from the rear compartment; it still feels spacious enough even for the tallest of adults to get comfortable.

Comfort is a key selling point for the e-tron Sportback, in fact. Along with the sumptuous leather seats, Audi has worked hard on refinement. It’s among the quietest cars on sale, not least because there’s no diesel chatter from the engine bay, but because that sleek shape slips through the air with minimum fuss. Audi claims the digital door mirrors make the car more aerodynamically efficient, too.

Elsewhere, storage is pretty good, with big door bins, a centre cubby and a deep storage tray with a special clip to hold your phone in place while it charges wirelessly. The glovebox is a good size, too, and there are pockets on the back of the front seats for odds and ends. 

Boot space

Unless you regularly load your car to the roofline with luggage, you’re unlikely to notice the e-tron Sportback’s compromised body. It still has a huge 615-litre boot, mated to a neat space in the nose for storing the charge cables. Like the standard e-tron, there’s no seven-seat option, but fold the second row of seats and you’ll find a colossal 1,665 litres of cargo capacity to play with – more than enough for most electric SUV buyers.
