So I'm looking to get the 2 door hardtop and the wife is worried about the leg room in the back for the little ones (5 and 4). They are hardly in the car both at the same time and if they are not for an extended period of time. Anyone have pictures with their kids in the back seat or any opinions/feelings about this? Really want to get the 2 door as the 4 door just looks a little "off" to me. Thanks for your opinions.

I occasionally have two teenagers in the back of mine. No problems. Apart from the first time when the big oaf looked at the outside and said 'how do I get in, there is no door!' Bless him, he'd never noticed 2 door cars before! He still thinks its particularly stupid not to have back doors!

I have to add that I am on the tall side (6'6") so that will be a bit of a hindrance.

I have got 2 kids that are 2 and a half and 4 and they both fit in fine. I sit my son (4) behind the passenger seat and bring the passenger seat as far forward as it can go and its fine. I also find it easier putting them into their car seats in my mini than I did in my countryman, plus if its raining I can hop in and buckle them in than standing outside and getting my back wet!

I originally ordered a Hardtop but changed to the Countryman because I have 4 kids (4,6,8 & 11) and a husband. I felt it was a better fit for my family - plus I loved the all wheel drive. Honestly, I do end up swapping our booster seats from my MINI to our Toyota minivan pretty often....I think you just get used to it but if you have a second set just leave them in there. If you love your car you just do what you need to. :)

Best,
Jenna

My 5 year old loves going in the back - plenty of space for him.

My 11 year old hates it - she finds the head rests very uncomfortable, and ends up twisting her neck to avoid them.

Well... it's either go in the Mini, or get in the Astra!!!
