When growing up I do not recall ever once feeling cramped or anyone ever griping about space. It was not like we did not know what a big car was like because my dad pretty much always had an S class Mercedes. Not like we are a short family either.
In the days before mandatory car seats it was easy to put a kid in the back seat of a coupe. Now, try loading a kid into a rear facing car seat in the back of a Mustang. It's hard enough in our Subaru Outback.

Once my kid can do forward facing (age 2?), a Mustang will be back on the menu.
