Default IS-F rear leg room

Out of the pictures that i saw, it looks to me like the IS F even has less room in the back.

Do you really hate not having leg room for your back passengers?


I have an IS250, and i freak-en hate that i have a sedan but realistically its a coupe because I can only fit (2) because the leg room sucks in the back.




**I told myself that i would wait until the second generation of the IS F, but its so hard to not buy it now.** AHHHHH


You think my stimulus check would do, for a down payment haha (It's a joke, in case you didn't know)

The IS-F had the most room in the rear compared to any other cars I looked at. I have people in the back of my car quite often and they always say there is more than enough room. The way the back bucket seats hug the passenger and lean back a little it adds alot of space. Isn't really visible, it just feels roomy once back there.

If you want space, I don't think the ISF is gonna work for you. There's plenty of other options, GS or even LS model with bigger space in the back passenger seat.

How tall are you guys, 5' 1". Most men I know or for that matter even women over 5"4' have little room back there, this is basically a 4 door coupe.

I dont carry ppl in the back of my seats for more than 30 minutes. If is a short drive the lunch, its convenient, but yeah, like somone said think of it as a 4 door coupe.

I carry my 11 year old son and 3 year old daughter (in her Recaro baby seat) in the back. I never have adults back there b/c there just isn't enough room. My 335i back seat was noticeably bigger...

It's essentially a 4 door coupe, but comes in handy when you need 4 doors instead of 2. Which I would take anyday over a 2 door coupe.

People mover it's not for the long haul, but more then sufficient for short hops. Not any different then the economy seating on airlines.

I've had people in the back seat, no complaints from anybody. Obviously if you scoot your drivers or passenger seat all the way back they ain't gonna fit! A little compromise works great (unless the folks in the front seat are really tall)!

Anyone want to sit in those sorry excuses for seats in the back of the SC? ISF isn't too bad .. for me anyway (5'7"). My buddy is 6'8" and I practically have to open the sunroof for him to even ride in the front! Hahaha..

what does the sc have to do with this? those seats are mainly for insurance anyway, and that's a coupe

Sadly, the Scion tC has measurably more rear leg room than any 2IS.

Most performance mods need a watch and timed course to demonstrate actual improvement. Few deliver the advertised claims. Many are actually worse than stock. The best performance mods are made to the driver.

Emotional arguments - They're not just for chicks anymore.
