With the middle-row seats slid back as far as possible, anyone sitting on them is treated to masses of leg room. True, if you slide them all the way forward, taller adults will find their knees pressed against the front seatbacks, but you won't need to do this very often.
By contrast, the rearmost row in seven-seat versions is distinctly cramped and best suited for younger teenagers. Leg room is particularly tight and access isn't great, either, because the wheel arch juts into the space you have to squeeze through.
Still, it is the only premium-badged car of this size to offer seven seats. If you’re willing to go non-premium, the Peugeot 5008 and Kia Sorento offer more spacious third rows.
