Here's a pic somebody snapped of the 3rd row seat.

Looks like no leg room at all.

You ever been in the back of a Mustang, Integra coupe, 1g/2g DSM, etc? Can't ride back there for a long road trip, but works fine for a ride across town. This is not intended for those trying to carry around 7 tall adults all day every day. Nobody with those needs is shopping for a small CUV. Many of those with vehicles that have 3rd row seating only get it for once in a while situations, which is what this is designed for.

Yeah 3rd row is useless for big families as well unless it’s a suburban.

Suburban is one of the only ones that has a 3rd row AND cargo space. It’s why so many soccer moms drive them.

seems useless tbh, just keep it 2 rows and battle it out with similar models.

So you believe people spend $50k+ on a car to get $3500 back?

More info about the third row seats:

Turns out the middle row was locked all the way back for the test rides. It isn't quite as cramped as it looked in the picks.

The last couple days I've started to think of getting the Performance 3, need to check inventory cars and find out trade in value of the AWD. Most likely won't pull the trigger until heated steering wheel is included, but it'll suck having to pay for LTE connection. That $100 a year

Performance isn’t just a software update?

I was so surprised, this hardly ever happens. Good job to Tesla for keeping it under.
