Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Space up front is generous, with the LC’s long body allowing for plenty of leg room, and there’s enough head room for tall adults as well. There’s also plenty of storage areas for odds and ends inside.

The taller those in the front are, though, the tighter it’ll be for anybody in the back, where head and leg room are severely limited. In fact, only young children will be able to sit in relative comfort, due to the LC’s aggressively raked roofline – the BMW 8 Series Coupé is similarly cramped back here but the Porsche 911 is a little better, although it would still be a stretch to call that car ‘comfortable’ for those in the rear.

The LC 500 V8’s boot is roughly similar to that of the 911 when it comes to boot space, it’s just about big enough for two carry-on suitcases and some soft luggage, but the hybrid’s is slightly smaller. The BMW 8 Series and Jaguar F-Type both offer comfortably more space. The boot is also shallow and a rather awkward shape, with a narrow aperture and a lumpy, uneven floor – although it does make up for this in terms of length. Many owners will choose to travel two-up and use the rear seats for additional luggage space.
