Ford Mustang Mach-E review - Practicality, comfort and boot space

The Mustang Mach-E’s cabin delivers all the family space you could want, although the boot isn’t the biggest

Ford has engineered an equal measure of substance into the stylish-looking Mustang Mach-E. Its bespoke EV platform means that the cabin floor is completely flat, which is a particular boon for the rear middle passenger who can travel in relative comfort without having to straddle the transmission tunnel found in a typical ICE car. You’ll also find extra space in the front for extra cubbies and storage trays.

Front three-quarter visibility is a little compromised due to the large A-pillars and the fact you don’t sit as high up as you might imagine in a big family SUV, while the driver’s view out of the rear screen isn’t the best because of the Mach-E’s sloping coupe-style roof line. Ford appears to have acknowledged this by fitting a rear view camera and front and rear parking sensors as standard across the range.

The Mach-E includes plenty of other practical kit that makes life just that bit easier on the road, with features such as adaptive cruise control, electrically-adjustable front seats, a wireless smartphone charging pad and the Active Park Assist system which can automatically locate and steer you into even the tightest of parking spaces.

Size

The Mustang Mach-E is slightly longer and taller than a Tesla Model 3, measuring 4,713mm and 1,625mm respectively, although at 1,881mm across the Mach-E is a little narrower which could help when navigating through tighter urban roads.

Leg room, head room & passenger space

Driver and passenger space throughout the Mach-E is excellent, with good headroom for all occupants and the ability to carry five adults in decent comfort. The long wheelbase means that legroom is particularly good in the back, even for taller passengers.

Boot

Ford hasn’t designed the biggest boot for the Mustang Mach-E and, at 402 litres it lags well behind the Volkswagen ID.4’s 543-litre load space. There is an extra 81 litres of storage under the bonnet of the car, however, which is useful for storing smaller items or perhaps the charging cables, although there is also a separate compartment under the boot floor for various oddments.
