Practicality & boot space Rating

4.5 out of 5

Other than its retro styling and low running costs, probably the main reason people will choose the ID. Buzz is its spacious interior. Thanks to the lack of an engine, Volkswagen has been able to stretch the wheels out to each corner to maximise room inside. That, alongside a tall, boxy shape means that there’s very little that the ID. Buzz won’t be able to swallow.

2022 Volkswagen ID. Buzz: interior space and storage

The majority of MPVs of this size offer a seven, or even eight-seat configuration; unfortunately, Volkswagen is only offering the ID. Buzz with five seats in the UK. Nevertheless, all five are incredibly roomy, with those at the front getting armchair-style armrests.

The boxy silhouette of the ID. Buzz means there’s plenty of headroom for those in the front and back, allowing even the tallest of passengers to get comfortable. Volkswagen has filled the interior with countless clever storage solutions such as a removable ‘Buzz Box’ centre console. The sliding rear doors make accessing the two rear ISOFIX child seat mounting points a breeze, although it's a shame the seats themselves can’t be slid backwards and forwards for greater space in the footwell or boot.

Boot space

In terms of outright capacity, the ID. Buzz boasts 1,121 litres of space in the boot. While this is short of the utterly vast 1,700 litres offered in the five seater version of the Volkswagen Caddy-based Ford Tourneo Connect, it’s still a lot more than what you’d find in the equivalent family SUV. 

Fold the rear seats down and this increases the ID. Buzz’s load space to 2,205 litres – making it almost as practical as the Cargo model. Unfortunately, the folded seats create an annoying ridge making it difficult to slide larger items through; although, this problem can be solved by specifying an optional adjustable boot floor.
