    Ordering the 7 seat configuration and was wondering with that does the second row not move up if there is someone in the 3rd seat to make it more comfortable like the 6 seater demo they have in the showroom?

    Also, is the second row now manual vs. automatic? to get into the 3rd row.

    Tried to find on the forums but getting multiple threads, a little confusing.

    From what the sale rep told me, the second-row seats are now manual to from back and forth. But then I haven't seen one myself.

    In the 7 seat configuration the middle row can manually be adjusted to slide forward. With the Model X interior update only the 6 seat interior is electronically controlled through the touch screen. Let me know if you need a sales rep to help you!

    I appreciate all the help. I have a sales rep that i am working with by these are just questions that just popped up in the head and thought id ask here.

    So its electronically controlled through the touch screen? It is not where the back of the second seat touches the knees it stops? Im debating between getting a 6 seater with a console or 7 seater. I want comfort and also some tech, manually moving the seat could be annoying I think at times.

    See video (link below). You can move, but not electronic.

    With the 6 seat interior you can move the seats with the button on the seat or via the touch screen. Just keep in mind that the 6 seat interior will not fold flat like the 7 seat interior.

    Thanks for that. The 3rd row does fold flat though? Correct?

    My wife really wanted the 7 seat interior until we went and tried the different configurations. We really didn't need the second row to fold down but have lots of grandkids. The new manual 7 seat configuration does not really slide forward enough to make it easy to get to the third row. With the 6 seat configuration, it is very easy to access the third row. We ended up purchasing the 6 seat with the center console. You should definitely sit in each if you can. Hope that helps.

    I appreciate the feedback on that. That's exactly what I wanted to hear.

    How do you like the 6 seater with the console? Do people have enough leg room in the back

    The leg room is fine seeing as how the console is cut away and has space for people in third row seats to place feet under it at an angle. The biggest plus is the ease in access to the 3rd row seats. My wife also thought if we got the 6 Seat configuration she would not want the console until she tried both with and without (she thought without it would provide better access to the rear seats). The console is nice and provides stability as an arm rest in the second row and also does not really have an impact on leg room in back seats with the cut away under the console. The way the automatic seats move forward and tilt give great access the third row. In fact when you move the second row forward for access it also moves the front seats forward and then back. Definitely worth looking at. The new 7 seat design is manual and really doesn't give great access to the 3rd row.

    You are awesome. That's what my thoughts were on that as well.

    I ordered the 7 seater yesterday without never seeing one, they only had 6 seaters for test drives here (Finland). Hope it lives up to the expectations..

    You know i saw both of them and I chose the 6 seater. The center seat on the 7 seater would be useful for a child anyway, with two big adults a third in the middle wouldn't be comfortable.

    Regardless 7 seater is a good choice as well

    We have 2 car seats in the middle row. A short adult can sit in the middle seat comfortably between the 2 car seats.

    I've seen the seven seater, and it's really a decision between do you haul more stuff or people... the folddown second row (and manual slide forward to get to the third row) vs the 'can't fold down second row' of the six seater, but electric seat adjustment, with the automatic easy entry to third row, and the open middle aisle so you can move around easily (if you don't get the second row console).

    Really people vs. cargo. :D

    We have mostly two people except in rare circumstances and would have gotten the five seater except for the missing rear HVAC unit, which we wanted for hot summers, etc.

    We ordered the new 7-seater being that we are already a family of 5. Though it is a bit tight, we can sit two more people here and there. Also, it is nice to be able to fold completely flat. When the car arrives in a month or two, I will certainly report back or answer any questions about fitting three car seats and other family members in there.

    Same here, I ordered new 7 seats config, for 4 reasons.
    1. For case of seating 7 people obviously.
    2. fold back seats for maximum cargo room.
    3. Price.
    4. Probably more reliable

    Me too. Usually only have 2 in the car, but the fold down second seat makes the cargo area much more usable. Also wanted the A/C in the rear.
