Here again, the Tavera shows its age. The dashboard design and quality are not great. The air-con vents are hard to operate. The wiper/ headlight stalks feel like they will snap off if given a good tug. The Tavera loses out on the space and practicality fronts as well. It’s narrow and therefore interior space isn’t great. Storage space is minimal too. The door pockets are small and only in the front. The twin glovebox though is useful.
Middle row passengers get decent legroom but it’s not as generous as in the others, even with the optional captain’s chairs. The seat themselves are quite flat and unsupportive and the high floor compromises your posture. Tall drivers will face quite a task just getting into the driver seat. The side-facing rear seats are for punished kids, otherwise best left folded up. A good thing is the low sill, which makes loading easy.
