Wondering if anyone has rear facing car seats in the 2nd row w/ the rear entertainment. 8 seat set up. Does it compromise front row leg room significantly. My wife is only 5’2” but it would be nice if she could sit comfortably with her seat reclined a little.

Test drove SX with the rear entertainment. Not compromising leg room, but makes entrance/exit to/from to 2/3 row sliding door less comfortable, and if you have rear facing baby seat on the second row left or right - it will be too close, or even you may need to slide front seat forward - which will compromise the leg room. - it made me consider EX without the screens instead. Luckily screens are optional on 2023 sx/sxp - opted out. in addition from other reviews - screens are pretty unusable, some even removed them.

Yeah I’ve read some people saying they weren’t great I think now that carnivals have Wi-Fi it’ll be better. I went ahead and ordered them on my 23 SXP’s so I’ll let you know when I get them.

@bmn78 is correct. They take up a good 3 inches of space for the rear facing car seat and the front passenger will definitely suffer for this. A rear facing child can't watch the screen anyway, so you might as well remove it if you've already placed an order for a trim with screens.

I’ll be using a rear facing car seat in ours in about a month and expect it will be an issue so I will probably just remove them, which is only two screws and pretty easy. I continue to help somebody figures out a way to 3-D print an adapter so you can mount an iPad there instead down the road. The factory system sucks.
