Practicality & boot space Rating

3.5 out of 5

While the Subaru Levorg is a little on the expensive side and is far from the most efficient estate car you can buy, it does at least meet the practicality requirements of a family car pretty well, with a decent boot and plenty of space for passengers and their odds and ends.

Subaru Levorg interior space & storage

Deep door pockets, a large glovebox and a good-sized central storage bin mean you won’t often be short of space for your bits and bobs in the Levorg. The doors open nice and wide for easier access but the car does sit quite low to the ground. Once you’re in, there’s loads of headroom for front seat passengers and those in the back aren’t going to feel squashed either. There’s just about room for a six-footer to sit behind a driver of similar size.

The front seats have an attractive sporty design but they are a little narrow. At least they get eight-way adjustment so, together with the steering wheel that adjusts for rake and reach, they give you plenty of options for finding the perfect driving position.

Boot space

You get a 522-litre boot in the Levorg, plus storage under the boot floor as standard. That’s a bit less than the 605 litres offered by the Volkswagen Golf estate, but significantly up on the 476-litre capacity of the Ford Focus estate.

The Subaru’s boot has a useful square shape but is a little on the shallow side in our opinion. It boasts a level lip so there’s nothing stopping you sliding heavy or awkwardly shaped items straight in.Easy-to-fold 60:40 split rear seats boost versatility further, expanding the total luggage capacity to 1,446 litres, so this is a great car for IKEA trips, house clear-outs or continental holidays.

Towing

The lack of a diesel engine could well reduce the Levorg’s appeal for buyers who want to tow a trailer or caravan, but the capability is there all the same. Dealers can fit a tow bar as an optional extra and the Subaru will pull a braked load of up to 1,500kg.
