The interior is a versatile space that features 25.7 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up and an impressive 51.3 seats down.
The seats, enough for 5 passengers, are comfortable and durably built. The passenger space is ample and the layout should allow for easy loading of child seats.
The rear cargo floor has a hidden and removable storage bin, which lifts out with straps and could be used to hold ice and chill beverages, or as a convenient beach toy tote.
