Vauxhall Corsa-e boot space & seating

The Corsa-e's boot is a good size, but it misses out on the petrol car's underfloor storage, which leaves nowhere to put the charging cables

There’s very little to complain about when it comes to the Corsa-e's practicality. There’s enough room in the back for adults to sit comfortably on short journeys and there’s little compromise when it comes to boot space – although you do miss out on the petrol car’s underfloor storage. Even the dinky MINI Electric manages to offer that – so you’ll need to factor this in if you’re filling the boot with shopping or luggage; the last thing you want is the cables tangled up in the footwells, taking up valuable space in the back.

Vauxhall Corsa-e interior space, storage & comfort

The Corsa-e’s conventional interior means there’s no sacrifice to be made when it comes to passenger space, storage and comfort. There’s a pair of decent-sized door bins, plus a cubby between the front seats big enough for a wallet and some keys. There are two cupholders on the centre console, occupying space freed up by the electronic handbrake and sleek gearlever. There’s a sizeable storage tray ahead of the gearlever, too, which is great for storing odds and ends like your mobile phone.

Boot space

Officially, the standard Corsa’s 309-litre boot shrinks to 267 litres in this electric version. However, in reality, the Corsa-e boasts the same usable boot space as its petrol or diesel siblings, with one important caveat – a lack of underfloor storage. This leaves you nowhere to keep the charging cables, so you end up flinging them in with your shopping or leaving them tangled on the rear seat.
