Anyone know if the Auris front passenger seat folds all the way back, close to flat?
Hoping it will for the iM.

I currently own a Scion xB and the passenger seat folds flat for putting long loads such as a few 8' 2x4s. I found this feature helpful so many times.What is your reasoning for wanting the front seat to fold down completely flat? I've never owned a car where the front seats can fold all the way down.. It does seem like it could be a useful function.
They could do this, but I think it is more likely they will keep it like the Auris and make it recline fully. I don't think they will eliminate the map pocket and make the seat a hardback like the Matrix, a discontinued model.I did see a Matrix when I was looking that had fold flat forward seats. As people compare this to a Matrix pretty frequently (both Corolla wagons), I could see it being plausible.
The Auris DOES fully recline now and there is no reason to suspect that the 2016 refresh will not be the same. This is important to us because the iM and Auris are getting even more aligned by 2016.Seats should be able to fully recline forward or backwards in any car in my opinion. Gives the owner a lot more seat function and space for carrying things like 2x4..
Funny how at this stage of the game that information isn't readily available. Although it may be common knowledge, making it clear to the public is what they should be doing.The Auris DOES fully recline now and there is no reason to suspect that the 2016 refresh will not be the same.

You may have missed my earlier post which was a response from a Toyota rep, so his answer is as official as it can get.....
I went through an Auris site in Great Britain and got this back from Toyota.
"I have a question.....Does the front passenger seat recline back enough to rest on the rear seat cushion or the back of the folded forward rear seat cushion? I wonder how long a load I can put in this car.
Thanks for your posts.
Regardless of the position of the front passenger car seat, when you recline it to the maximum setting, it does not rest on the rear seat cushion. There is a gap (the size of this gap varies slightly dependent on whether the front seat is pushed fully forward or fully back) and the seat is almost horizontal...... Hope this helps for now but let us know if you have any other questions"

Plus we're getting close to finally seeing it.
I think Scion will keep the fold back ability, but don't think we will get the fold forward flat option.
