ok so don't get the option, you're not tied to it. And in all fairness you could never get that many people in your vehicle if you don't have a seven seat vehicle so the point seems moot.I just can't think of the last time that I've had to fit that many people in my car.
yea I think I'd rather save the money on mine. I just don't think I would have the use for it.ok so don't get the option, you're not tied to it. And in all fairness you could never get that many people in your vehicle if you don't have a seven seat vehicle so the point seems moot.
Regardless its better to have the capability and not need it than not have it and need it...
its your money.
I really couldn't tell you, would probably need to look at the demographics to make a semi coherent prediction. Ostensibly I would say that the 7 seat option is more likely to be taken by younger families who are more prone to car pooling, having kinds friends along, soccer runs, you know that kind of stuff...yea I think I'd rather save the money on mine. I just don't think I would have the use for it.
Do you think that most people who get the disco sport will get the 7 seat option? What kind of take rate are you expecting?
Yes. For a growing family, it's a great option.I think one thing that would drive people to the 7 seat option is if you have a small family now but think that it could get bigger in the future. You figure you are going to keep the vehicle for at least 4 or 5 years. A lot can happen in that time. A young family with 1 or 2 kids can turn into a family with 3 or 4 kids. Gives your car room to grow with your family.
They fold down. Also, and I think it's on this forum somewhere, some owner took his out and retrofitted some type of cargo area floor. He included photos of his work. You might want to try a search if you want to see how he did it. Even if I had them, I don't think I'd retrofit the car to take them out since they cost so much to put in as an option (mine didn't come with them and like others I wouldn't have ordered them anyway; I believe that all UK DS's are the 5+2 version, so they don't get a choice).It's not too bad if you can fold them down or remove the third seat. Can you?
I can't imagine sitting in the back like this guy.
^^^We specifically wanted this feature! Super helpful for the occasions we'll need it. 2 kids, one plays soccer - so usually 2-4 12yr olds in the car at one time. Plus our 6 year old call's it his seat! It's brilliant, keeps the 6yr old & 12 yr old separated - less fighting!!
