Rear Legroom in 5-Door Maruti Jimny
The video showcases a man of average height sitting in the rear seat. There is enough room for the man to stretch his legs as well as decent headroom. The width of the cabin supports two passengers abreast quite comfortably. Squeezing in the third passenger could be a bit of a struggle. Being a tall SUV, height won’t be a problem for the vast majority of car buyers. The extra wheelbase has certainly been utilised quite well not just for the second row, but also for the boot compartment with usable 208 litres.
