What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2003 Mazda Protege

2003 Mazda Protege Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2003 4dr Wagon 130-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I find the front seat of this car to be incredibly comfortable. Everything is easily within reach and seems to fit me perfectly. My only complaint is that there's no good place to put my purse, but that's been the case with every car I've owned. see full Mazda Protege review
2003 Mazda Protege Seat Room and Comfort: Cons

The backseat is a little tight, so it would not be comfortable for a large person or for a long drive. Thankfully, my husband and I are on the small side, and our daughter is pretty tiny too, so it doesn't really bother us at all. see full Mazda Protege review

5-speed manual FWD
Hey, it's a small car. Which results in a, well, small car- inside. Like most makers, Mazda puts higher priority on front seat room than rear. Logical- most small-car owners have small families, either in number or physical size. What are you gonna do? see full Mazda Protege review
2002 4dr Wagon 130-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Despite good manual adjustability, support is average and lumbar support is nonexistent. see full Mazda Protege review
