The second row seats are large and therefore adults can easily fit into it without any problems for leg space. If there is no one in the third row, second row seats can be slide back to enjoy extra leg room. The third row seats are very close to the floor but it definitely provides ample space for adults. With all the seats occupied the cargo space is just 20 cubic feet, but when you fold the second and third row seats the cargo space expands to 115 cubic feet.
