Looking at a 325XiT and am curious what owners think of the space in the back seat as well as the rear cargo area?

Sufficient? Is the rear seat comfortable for adults or just kids?

The rear seat is fairly comfortable, not too "squishy." Seats are firm and supportive. If I had to sit in the back for a long ride, I would. Some cars are horrible for rear seats. The 3 Series is the best out of all the vehicles I've owned.

The cargo space is wonderful. I like it because of it's hauling capabilities. I'm in the process of moving, and I packed a TON of stuff into the cargo area with the seats folded down. I even fit a 30" Sony Wega(in the box) with the stand into the back, and I still had some room for other items. Go for the Touring!!

The XIT has decent rear seat space and cargo capacity. It doesn't have as much of either as the Passat, but is better than the sedan (maybe psychological as there is not a rear window directly behind you - maybe due to a higher roofline?).

I have had friends in the back seat for trips of up to several hours and there were no complaints. In fact on the two-hour trip, my friend was asleep for at least half of the trip.

If you are tall and have the front seats adjusted farther back, the space is a bit tight. It is a compact car.

The cargo area is good for most uses. It is not as deep as some cars, but is highly useful. You do not need to pull the rear seat cushions up to fold the rear seatbacks as you do on some models. The split folding is also convenient as you can have passengers and cargo on board. The cargo cover is easily removed when you need added height.

I have used it to haul sprinkler pipe by folding one rear seatback and reclining the passenger seat to allow the pipe up under the dash (and of course used plenty of throw-cloths to avoid any scratching).

I also used it to haul several dozen small shrubs to plant in my yard. It is no minivan, but is quite flexible. PLUS it handles great, has adequate power, all-wheel drive, and is comfortable on most surfaces.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it: A great all-around vehicle -- highly useful AND fun to drive!

Everyone who has ridden in the back seat of mine has actually commented on how roomy and comfortable it is. I'm sure it would be tight if you were really tall. It is so easy to fold down the rear seats-no fuss at all. I am in love with this wagon. I need to haul furniture for a living and have had no problems with cargo room. Fantastic versatility with sports car feel! The passat was nice and roomy but the handling wasn't even close. This is one seriously underrated wagon.

Depends! if the people in the front are 5' 10" or taller the "adults" in the back will sound like little kids "are we there yet"? Rear cargo....less than my Passat but better than equal trade off. plus you can hang something out the back....gate up window open if you're in a jam.
