2014 Mazda CX-5: Rear-Facing Child Seat Fitment

June 27, 2013

2014 Mazda CX-5

Rear-facing child seats represent a real challenge, mostly for the person who has to sit in front of them. Because they recline heavily, they eat into longitudinal space. And there's no exception in the CX-5.

As you can see, front leg room and recline are compromised. Fortunately, I only had to put my 5'4" wife in front of the seat and she was able to make herself reasonably comfortable. But a big passenger, someone 5'10" or taller, wouldn't enjoy this scenario.

It's what drives people to minivans.
