Remember to qualify ... finesse is in the eyes of the beholder. We find the fold-up seats to be anything but clumsy... rather they are very utilitarian, comfortable, and with superior breathable fabric coverings. The removable table is designed to make the rear accessed cargo area usable for cargo...no need to fold and stow a table as in some models. The table top can be handily secured under the bed or simply placed on top of the bed and easily secured there as well. The posts store in the closet.
Storage under the seats is best accomplished with portable storage containers which can be easily moved forward when utilizing the huge rear storage area - we do miss the style of overhead bins of the FC for ease of access. But, then, this was designed as an international trim level with that style of overhead storage + a rear opening hatch.
If you are looking for recliners, then suggest a different model... it actually makes a measurable difference in your opinion if you own one... that is why AS makes so many different models / designs.
