New CX-8 Released - More Than Just A 7 Seat CX-5?

:
'17 CX-5 GT, '17 Fusion Platinum, '17 Pacifica Limited
3rd row can be used for more than just toddlers.

As for the CX-8's third row, apparently "The third-row seats are purportedly designed so that an adult 170cm (5'7") tall can fit comfortably"
FWIW, my wife is fairly petite, 63"/160cm tall, and she was able to fit in the CX-9 third row with the second row seat positioned 1-2" inches forward from its most rearward position. She thought it would be comfortable enough for an hour or so. I'm about 70" tall and average build and my head doesn't fit without slouching. To get my legs to fit, I had to move the second row seat pretty far up and even then my knees were pretty folded up. I could manage back there for a short trip, but it wasn't comfortable and the person in front of me would be short of leg room.

To be fair, I suspect the third row is pretty much designed for up to teenage years and if push comes to shove, adults for very short trips.
