MT Compares All the Eco-cars

I must be a micro human being, because I find all 4 seats in my Gen 2 pretty comfortable and think the vehicle has pretty non-intrustive packaging considering the big battery. I've had 4 full-sized adults in my car many times and other than one friend, nobody ever said anything contrary. Most actually raved about the rear seats comfort (very much like an 80s BMW 6 series!).

Some of the graphs/charts don't make sense either. Interesting to see the luggage comparison though...I knew had run some numbers in the past and couldn't understand the massive difference in reported volumes between the Prius and Volt.

The 4 seats are all very comfortable, especially in the Gen 1 Volt. Ingress/egress is a bit tough for some, but once you're in there, the seats are far more comfortable than most back seats.
A lot of folks fall into their cars like an i beam, for these folks the Volt is a challenge because they hit their head as they fall in.

Perhaps as a people we are just too darn lazy, you know bending over and entering at anything other than a free fall is far too challenging to pull off.

This coming from a 6' 3" guy who has zero issues with the front or back, my assumption would be if you hit your head once you don't do it again but I've been proven wrong.
