Hello guys,

How do you feel about the backseat space for long drives ?
Is the fact that it's kinda crowded for the legs a huge comfort problem or is it just enough?
I did a test drive recently and checked out the backseat and it kinda felt like i was quite close to the front seat even for a short person like me (1,67m).
For the front seat , I can't say anything because they are great. The combination of leather and textile material makes the seats comfy and the space is more than enough to enjoy a ride.

The back seat, in my opinion, is just for short drives because the lack of leg space.
I think the only way its somewhat comfortable is if there is only one person back there for a longer drive, or a child.
If it is a necessary thing for you, you probably should be bumping up to a CX-5.
Other than that, its a great little car and fun to drive; but...the CX-5 can be just as fun with more space :)

It's not quite a must have for me but I enjoy taking trips with my friends to other cities/ close countries.
I guess if they were okay while doing this with my old 2001 VW Golf 4 it shouldn't be much of a difference :D

Yeah, it's pretty tight back there, even compared to other cars in it's size class. Tight even for my wife, who is 96 pounds and just 5 feet tall. When we need to take her Mom somewhere, which fortunately is not often, my wife rides in the back seat and this necessitates moving the front passenger seat up a few notches, just so my petite wife can squeeze in the back seat behind her mother. When I bought the car two years ago, my intention was to consider it basically a two-seater (in fact, I usually have the rear seat folded down). As was stated, if you intend to use the rear seat on a regular basis, you'd likely be better off with a CX-5.

It's the most luxurious, plushest, miniature back seat ever!

Which is just what I wanted! "Basically a two-seater" with an emergencies-only back seat ... slightly more usable than my undergraduate-days 356 :)

I have stuffed three fully-grown humans back there, dressed in winter (read: puffy) hiking gear. I was told it was "cozy." :D Luckily, it was a short 20-minute drive. I wouldn't recommend it for long distances, lest there be a mutiny.
