You’ll probably guess just by looking at it that the C-HR is not the out-and-out class leader when it comes to practicality. All those curves and angles that make it look so good do have an impact on interior and boot space, but it’s not a total write-off in this regard.
Taller adults may find their heads brushing the roof when sitting in the back, while children may not be thrilled with the high window line, which can leave them with little or no view out.
Elsewhere, boot capacity varies depending on what engine you pick – 443 litres for the 1.8-litre and 424 litres for the 2.0-litre – but either way it’s less than most family SUVs and more in line with the capacity of VW Golf-sized hatchbacks. But it’s still a useful shape with a wide opening, so most people will find it sufficient.
