Cabin storage is good although not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2019 Subaru Brat Model has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles make it an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
