Rear seats (help a French newbie !)

Dear all,

I am French and plan to buy the new Mustang.

But, as you might know, it will be the first Mustang ever distributed in Europe. So I have never seen a real one.

I have a question : what about the rear seats. Can an adult use them with a normal leg position ?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, but, like all mustangs it is not for someone tall (taller than 5'9").....and not for long trips (1 hour +)

if the front passengers are tall like 6" (1m83) there won't be much space left in the rear. it is ok for short trip. but long distance will be hard. also not much headroom if you are tall.

If the 2015 is like the 2005-2014, no, not even close.

The rear seats are for emergency use and children only. With a 6' adult driving, there is no rear leg room.

Welcome to a great car
BUT in my 2012 Convertible
at 6 feet (1.83 meters) my FIVE YEAR OLD complains when in the back so I have to pull it up a bit, and my 5.5 feet (1.67M) tall wife has to pull forward for the eight year old to not kick on the passenger seat. Two adults can squeeze in the back for an emergency if less than an hour ride in my opinion.

Not for anyone over 5 ft

I am about 5'10'' and I do not fit in the backseat very well. My head and neck are pushed forward a few inches because of the rear window. Smaller children shouldn't have a problem as long as they can keep their feet off of the seats lol
Then again would it be a mustang if it back adequate space in the rear seating?

The mustang is a "2 + 2" which means two real seats in the front, and two seat belts in the back. Like the other guys said, for practical purposes, the rear seats are for children or short adults only. I am about 6'2" tall, when I try to sit in the back, my head hits the ceiling and my knees are folded up almost in my face.

Also like the other guys said, if you have a tall person driving, the front seat will be touching, or nearly touching, the rear seat behind the driver; so there is no room for a passenger's knees/legs. I have put kids back there, which means I have to pull my seat forward a couple inches, and I was OK for about an hour drive . . . but not something you want to be doing all the time.
