The hatch has an impressive 595 literes of cargo room, while the more practical Estate has 633 litres. When the seats are folded down, the cargo room increases to 1700 and 1865 litres respectively.

Other highlights include panoramic glass roof with solar cells, automatic parking assist, 6.5-inch touchscreen with a 30 GB hard drive, a jumbo box in the centre console, nine airbags, ABS, ESP, a tyre pressure monitor system, hill assist and driver activity assistant which warns the driver in case of fatigue.
