We drove a 6-seat model X on Friday and loved it. The big problem now is that my wife and I are going back and forth on what seating config to get. I'm leaning towards 6-seat plus console, but that's the only one we have not seen in person! We have a fairly small family, just one middle-school aged kid, so we don't need a huge amount of space every day, and really want him to be comfortable most of the time on road trips. We feel like we'd love to have a lot of seating capacity for the occasional jaunt with friends or family, and we like the open, airy feel of the X, which is why we're thinking X rather than S. Our local showroom just opened last week, and has very little inventory, so we drove up to the neighboring metro area to see the 5 and 7 seat configs today. We didn't see a 6 seat + console. I forgot it existed and the person helping me didn't mention it, and it is pretty uncommon, so I'm not sure they had one.. Our feelings about the configs: 7 seat: A bench seat may provide a wider seat for a plus sized passenger. I liked the recline in the 2nd row. I was disappointed in the clunky mechanical design, and disappointed in how little leg room there was in the 3rd row. The 3rd row also felt very claustrophobic. I would never, ever want to sit there (and due to the aforementioned plus-sized passenger, I might end up there at some point). 5 seat: Again, a bench seat may provide a more comfortable seat for a plus-size passenger and the recline was nice. However, I don't see any advantage over the 7 seat, aside from cost. The loss of the 3rd row caused us to rule this out. 6 seat: My wife has concern over "wasted space" between the seats. We have a general concern that my kid won't have anyplace to put books, etc, due to no seat immediately adjacent, and no seatback pockets or other storage. The rear legroom was fantastic, and I felt like i could ride in the back, even on a road-trip. I think that the 6-seat + 2nd row console could solve the problem, by giving my kid a place to stash his stuff, and an armrest and closer cupholder. The drawback is loss of easy access to the 3rd row, and a potential loss of legroom for the 3rd row passengers. Can anybody with this config chime in with their opinions? Is the 2nd row console a good idea? Does it hurt 3rd row legroom?
