Which small cars offer the most amount of space for adults in the back seats?

I'm searching for a car (2018 onwards) that'll offer a relaxing drive. Which are the best and safest small cars (B segment) to travel with adults comfortably in the rear seats? It needs a decent boot, too. Also, in terms of reliability (excluding Toyota or Honda), which cars in the small segment are the best? Thank you for your help.

To answer your first question, most B-segment cars will feel pretty cramped for adults in the rear. You'd be better with a bigger family hatchback, although even these can be a little tight on space in the back. You could consider a Skoda Octavia - these have a huge amount of space. Have you considered a crossover SUV like the Peugeot 3008? These offer a lot more space.

In terms of reliability, it is usually Honda or Toyota models we recommend. A Hyundai i20 or i30 could be a good choice, too - they're generally very reliable and come with a generous five-year, unlimited mileage warranty.
