MG5 EV estate - Practicality & boot space

Similarly-priced rivals can’t match the space and practicality offered by the MG5 EV

One of the MG5 EV's main strengths is its size – it's the first affordable electric estate car on sale in the UK, and is a viable (and much cheaper) alternative to electric SUVs like the Kia Niro EV and Peugeot e-2008. Needless to say, there's lots of room in the front and back seats, so four adults can travel in comfort. It's not quite as spacious as a conventional estate like a Ford Focus Estate or Skoda Octavia Estate, but it's impressive for a budget EV.

Headroom and legroom is generous in both the front and rear, and the driver gets a six-way adjustable seat, making it easy to find a good driving position. It's a fairly comfortable car but there's a lack of storage cubbies compared with some rivals.

Boot space

There's 464 litres of space behind the rear seats up to the parcel shelf, or 578 litres to the roofline. That's not too far behind the hybrid Toyota Corolla Touring Sports with a 581-litre boot. However, consider the fact a similarly-priced Vauxhall Corsa Electric offers just 267 litres of load space and you’ll realise what superb practicality the MG offers for the price.

The only real downside is a large loading lip to lift items over. Folding the rear seats down frees up 1,456 litres of storage room; if you need more space, all cars come with roof rails so you can install bike racks or a roof box.


Like many electric cars, the MG5 isn’t able to tow.
