Now isn't this interesting...

Neither one has second-row seats that will make you many friends. The Honda’s second row has slightly better knee and foot room than the Mazda. However, the Honda’s cramped head room will cause anyone taller than 5-foot-10 to slouch in their seat.
so is he saying cx3 will be better or worse?

I guess that means you have to choose between your legs be squished or your head being squished. My very own Sophie's choice...

What can you expect from a CUV at this size. It's trying to be a big car, but still has to be small. It's a tough balance.

I think that head space often gets sacrificed to make the roofline look more appealing. Its totally form over function, but it must be a trade-off that makes sense for the company.

I do agree with you that the roofline has to do with head space, and its also an odd size of car that this segment is basically inventing. However, comfort is a big factor for me. I don't really want to buy a car where my head is hitting the roof all the time.

And when did you begin driving from the rear seat?

I can care less about the head space in the back since im never back there. My daughter is only 8 months old she can complain about it till much later. And my rottweiler doesnt care but the window has to be open.

No complaints here

I was talking about if the front seat had too little head room. it's more rare but it has happened before.

Was confusing as your comment came in the middle of a discussion about rear space...

One thing i really liked about the CX-3 is the interior, something i'm glad to see they covered here:

Quote:
Interior styling: Inside, the CX-3 doesn’t feel like an entry-level crossover. The plastics and fabrics are of a high grade and rewarding to the touch. The styling of the gauges, knobs, and buttons are a distinguishing blend of high-tech and Steampunk. The Honda plastics are a bit more, well, plasticky. The gauge cluster styling is futuristic in appearance
