The Top Gear car review:Vauxhall Ampera
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
There’s a surprising amount of room inside the Ampera considering all the technology tucked away underneath and the fact that it’s a four-seater. Leg- and headroom are generous, and the large central tunnel created by the battery lay-out is actually quite handy for leaning purposes. A 300-litre boot isn’t class-leading but it’s not bad for a car with all the extra drivetrain and battery gubbins like this. The centre console is quite strange – it’s made up of a fl at, touchscreen-style pad. It works well enough but seems a bit gimmicky and unusual.
