You can easily fit a 2 and 4 year old in the back. It also depends on your height. I'm 6' 3" and there is not enough space for an adult behind my seat. But 4 average sized adults could probably fit ok. It's NOT a big car, it's rather small.

The trunk is also very small, so keep in mind that you could never fit luggage in there for all 4. For typical day to day driving, you would all fit comfortably.

As a father of 2 children (11,15 yrs) I think space in the back is limited but OK for 2-3 hrs trip. I would not ride there myself because I'm 6 feet tall but kids doing fine.
It was better in Maxima though. Waiting for new Q70 to compare.

Kids and car seats aside, I carpool with 3 other adults in my Q50S several time a week. Not one of them has complained about the comfort in the rear seat, legroom, etc. None have asked me to move my seat forward in the driver position to provide more leg room. We have engaged in conversation about the car, the generational changes, etc. No complaints from the adults.

It is otherwise just my wife and I in the front seats, no kids so I can't provide any feedback for the car seat situation.

I have a car seat in the back of my Q50S, fits just fine. Plenty of space. But again, the room in the car has everything to do with the person up front. I'm 6' 3" and you are not getting an adult behind my seat if I'm to sit comfortably. The original poster said he's 5' 6" - so I think the seating in the vehicle would be more than fine for 4 adults in his case.

heres a better question.... show me a car today that CAN fit a family of four comfortably.... not many.
E-Class feels he same as this car to me
5- Series will, but option it out the way you want...your talking mid 50's to 60's
Lexus- i feel are the same size
Taurus/MKS is big and might do it, but not sold on that car...looks nice, just to tall

what else did you look at?

You need to go to for much larger cars like Toyota Avalon and Chevy Impala if back seat space is that important.

The Q50 is already classified as a mid-size (5 series, E class), while most of its competition (3 series, ATS, IS, A4) in this class is classified as compact.

My Sonata is a lot bigger than my Q50S.

I'm 5'9" and my wife is about 5'5". I have a 2 year old and a new born. To my surprise my wife actually fit in the middle between a car seat and booster. She said it wasn't that bad. ╮(╯_╰)╭

I don't believe the Q50 is quite as large weight-wise or dimension-wise as the 5-Series or E-Class.

To me, I look at the Q50 as a large compact or a small mid-size sedan.

I always take my kids for a test fit in my cars (a 13 yo that is tall for his age and an 11 yo) they both liked the room and the seats in the Q, better than the other vehicles I looked at. They like it better than the Sonata we got rid of, and they absolutely despised the IS350F we looked at. They have been through enough car purchases to know what they like in a back seat, and are brutally honest when making comments. If it sucks, they say so, right on the spot, sales guy there or not. :D

:) hope they never lose that spirit. But 13 and 11 are definitely different than 2 and a newborn :).

OP - Take it home and test the car seats... But as someone with a 2 year old and a 4 month old... You do not want to take them to the dealer. Good to have info for perspective, but you're going to have to try on your own... I suspect you'll be fine given your height. Others who are 6'3" say no problem... But I'm 6'3" and can't have the car seat behind me, has to be on the other side. Might be out seat, or how I have the seat back positioned, but I'm not able to place the driver seat where I want it with the car seat behind me. It's not a lot of adjustment, but I certainly wouldn't want to drive that way constantly. If its just a quick trip or infrequent trip, no problem, just wouldn't want it that way permanently. Again... You'll most likely be fine... But for others... Another perspective.
