I see the leather gen1 looks like my cloth seats.
What are the dimensions of the gen2 seat?
What is the actual measurement of the seat pad depth (front to back) of both seats? Gen 1 definitely looks like it protrudes more, but maybe the side bolsters are just shorter.
My wife is gone with the car right now, but the cushion I bought is 18" deep and I think it matches exactly. My other car measures 20", but there is a reason some nicer cars have extendable cushions. This is an area where obviously everyone is different, and it's impact also depends on how you adjust your set.
There is only 12" between the side bolsters however and no amount of adjustment can help that.
I heard back from Mazda and they said they would escalate my complaint to engineering.
