Backseat

Headroom is good in the sedan's backseat, but with the driver's seat fully back my knees pushed well into its soft backrest. With it in my driving position, for full clutch engagement, the backseat gave me knee room to spare. The center floor hump is about ankle-high, and the center seat itself is raised and not at all comfortable. Even so, for most use I'd consider this car a four-seater.

Note that the hatchback has slightly different interior dimensions, including a lower passenger volume of 88 cubic feet versus the sedan's 90 cu. ft. Its front headroom is almost a full inch less than the sedan's. Its rear headroom is 0.6 of an inch less and legroom is 0.7 of an inch less, but its rear hip room is a couple of tenths greater than the sedan's.
