2016 Toyota Mirai: View From the Back Seat
by Kelly Hellwig, Managing Editor on July 5, 2016
I was the last one to make it out of the house this morning, and as I walked through the garage, I found my kid had already taken my spot in the passenger seat of our long-term 2016 Toyota Mirai.
Ed and I were dropping her off just a few miles down the road, so rather than ruin both our mornings by issuing a firm "Move your butt" command, I climbed into the backseat instead.
What I found was a pleasant surprise.
Sitting behind the 5-foot 5-inch Emma, who of course hadn't moved her seat forward to accommodate her 5-foot 7-inch mother, I realized I had plenty of room for both my knees and my feet. So much in fact, that I allowed my laptop bag to share my footwell.
The Mirai's seats were also well-padded and comfortable, and the heated seat switch was an added bonus.
Who needs to ride shotgun, anyway?
