Review

I was fortunate enough to have a new garden fence installed this month by my next door neighbour. The downside of this good fortune was that the newness of the fence highlighted all the unnecessary old tat laying around in my garden. Cue a run to the tip in the Exeo and a good opportunity to assess its load lugging ability.

The removable boot floor is an excellent idea and prevents any unwanted mess on the carpet as well as giving access to the tie down points in the floor. The rear load cover being attached to the rear seats means there is no need to remove it when loading large or awkward objects but this does, however, have its drawbacks. You do have to completely remove it to make the most of the rear seats split fold function.

The low boot lip allows for easy access and the Exeo easily swallowed the load of assorted old bits of fence, paint tins and even an old garden table easily.

On a different note, I have recently received complaints from my five-year-old daughter about the lack or legroom in the rear. With her booster seat installed, her feet touch the back of the front seat leaving me to either sit too close to the steering wheel or let her sit in the front passenger seat where she is able take charge of my MP3 player and put Jessie J on repeat.
