Any improvement on rear legroom?
 
Does the WK2 have any more (or less) legroom in the rear passenger seats? I find it all but useless when the front seats are anywhere past about halfway back. That and the closeness of the seats makes for trouble with a child seat. It's too close and lets them kick the seatback. A bit more legroom would be a very welcome improvement.

All in all I don't have too many complaints about the WK. But the legroom and lack of enclosed storage space are my biggest gripes.

I'm not a fan of the new console layout as it doesn't really have decent space to set things down (like cell phones or mp3 players). Stuff like that you want to have on-hand, not buried in a glove or armrest box.

So if the rear seats recline, is that just the top portion or do they slide the bottom forward to aid the tilt? I'm guessing either way would lose the storage bins behind the seats. Not that they were ever of any use...
