TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica

2018 Chrysler Pacifica Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
Chrysler has revised its "Stow 'n Go" seats a few times to improve their comfort, and the latest ones are better. But they still feel smaller, firmer, and less comfortable than the conventional captain's chairs in competitors. This noted, unless you'll regularly carry adults in back, and they're picky about seat comfort, the Pacifica's seats should be good enough. A removable center seat for the second row has been added to the options list. With this seat the Pacifica can, like the Sienna and Odyssey, carry eight people in a pinch. But the same seat in the Sienna is much more comfortable. The Pacifica's third row is more competitive in terms of comfort. Roominess in both cases is better than in the Kia Sedona, perhaps about even with the Toyota Sienna, and less than in the Honda Odyssey, which is the roomiest of the bunch. If you're used to a crossover any of these minivans will seem very roomy. The third-row seats in most crossovers aren't in the same league. see full Chrysler Pacifica review

The seats are still more thinly padded than the competition - and the third row seat angle is merely adequate. My mother in law noted that our Ody 3rd row is really like a standard seat - not "3rd class" - but the Pacifica made her feel like she was "stuck in the back". see full Chrysler Pacifica review
