2010 Suzuki Kizashi GTS: Trunk Pass-Thru and Folding Rear Seats
September 13, 2010
Our long-term 2010 Suzuki Kizashi GTS has both a 60/40 folding rear sear and a trunk pass-thru.
When I worked at a major carmaker, the question that came up then is one that I will pose today: is it necessary to have both a folding rear seat and a trunk pass-thru?
Of course it's nice to have both, but under what scenario would a trunk pass-thru be useful in lieu of folding seats? Certainly if the seats were fixed, a trunk pass-thru would be useful.
The only situation I can think of for a pass-thru is if you had 4 people in the car and some long 2x4s or skis residing in the trunk, an somewhat unlikely occurrence. And if you did that a lot, wouldn't you also/instead have an SUV or pickup truck?
Is there another scenario I'm missing?
