Fold down rear seats


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if you fold down the rear seats , can a 6’ person put an air mattress down and stretch out at a rest area?

Sorry if this seems like an off the wall question, but I do a lot of driving ,sometimes cross country.

A hour or so nap does the trick.

Take a look at the measurements here: https://www.cars101.com/subaru/legacy/legacy2011.html#dimensions

 

That's the 2011 page, since those dimensions aren't shown on the '14 page for some reason, but the measurements should be identical across all 5 years of this generation. Dimension K is the one you're looking at, and based on that, it looks like you might have to get a little diagonal or sleep on your side. Definitely looks workable, though.

I crawled in there the other way to adjust my trunk latch once, and I can tell you there isn't much room in the pass through from the trunk to the seats. You could probably make it work, but not with a thick air mattress.

Yeah this^^

 

I would recline the front seat and sleep in it myself. Or across the back seat.

I have taken naps before in my 5th Gen, I just recline the drivers seat back. If you were going to sleep with the seats folded down and in the back, I would think you would need one of those thin air mattresses that look like foam pads.

 

I guess they call them self inflating pads.
