The Top Gear car review:Toyota Mirai
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
With a fuel cell, motor, power electronics, battery pack and two carbon-fibre tanks all stuffed under the skin, something had to give – and rear space isn’t as generous as the Mondeo-like proportions (it’s nearly 4.9 metres long!) suggest. It’s only a four-seater, headroom will be an issue for anyone approaching six-foot, while the 361-litre boot is wide, but not very deep – encroached upon by the battery and hydrogen tanks.
Up front, though, it’s the most appealing interior we’ve ever seen in a Toyota – all satin-soft leather and where there’s not one of the multiple display screens there’s sophisticated-looking black-panel touch sensitive switches. Upmarket stuff, more like a Lexus interior than a Toyota – but then so it should be with a price tag to match a Range Rover Sport.
