Suzuki Across plug-in hybrid boot space & seating

Plenty of interior space for front and rear seat passengers and healthy 490-litre boot make the Suzuki Across a very practical car

Identical in size to the Toyota RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid, the Across is equally practical. Over time, the RAV4 has grown from its relatively compact roots and this renders the Across larger than many of its plug-in rivals, such as the Peugeot 3008, Citroen C5 Aircross and Ford Kuga. This naturally is beneficial for interior space and boot capacity, particularly given the relatively boxy exterior shape, and so it proves – the Across accommodates passengers and luggage well.

Suzuki Across plug-in hybrid interior space, storage & comfort

There’s not a lot wrong here, with the Across providing comfortably enough space for four adults and allowing another to squeeze in at a push. Six-footers should be happy more or less wherever they’re sitting and the seats are also admirably comfortable – for the driver in particular there’s enough adjustment to find a suitable position.

Storage space isn’t bad either, with a central armrest cubby, a couple of cupholders ahead of that, space for a phone ahead of the gear selector and the usual bottle-swallowing doorbins. There’s a small cubby between the steering wheel and driver’s door, too, which could be useful for coins, parking passes and the like.

Boot space

The 490-litre boot capacity is 90 litres down on the figure for the non-plug-in-hybrid RAV4 (which has no Suzuki equivalent), but it's still a useful size. The tailgate is powered, the boot floor is flat and the rear seats drop down to free up 1,198 litres of space in total, so the Across is overall a very practical car.
