The CX-5’s interior is well thought-out, with plenty of storage space dotted around the cabin. Aside from the usual glovebox space, the front offers a central storage compartment with 2 retractable cupholders, decent-sized door bins, several little cubby holes and an overhead sunglasses holder. The back-seat passengers get door bins, coin trays on the doors and seatback storage pockets in front of them.
The CX-5 can seat 5 people and there’s a reasonable amount of head- and legroom in the back. The boot is smaller than a lot of its competitors, but it still offers a respectable 506 litres. It’s also a convenient shape, with a nice square loading area and virtually no lip at the base of the rear hatch. Pull a handle in the boot and the seats fold flat in a 40/20/40 split, providing a loading space that’s suitable for bulkier items.
