Well, it completely depends on how many seats you have in use. For example, if you’re only using five seats, the two in the front and three in the middle, and have the back ones down, then you’ll have a pretty generous amount of boot space. Ideal if you have a dog or need the boot for luggage, pushchairs and scooters.
Whereas if all seats are in use then you will have considerably less storage space – although this space is generally still on par with most family hatchbacks. On the plus side, lots of the seats in MPVS, particularly the middle and back ones, can be folded, moved and even completely removed, independently.
With an MPV, you can adapt your boot size to meet your needs. What’s more, if you do find yourself with less boot space than you anticipated, then lots of people carriers come with metal bars on the roof that you can attach roof rails and roof boxes too. See – they don’t call them multi-purpose vehicles for nothing!
If you want to take a deeper dive into MPV boot sizes, our MPV boot review takes a look at the boot size of several well-known multi-purpose vehicles, so you can make the best choice for you.
