"Though it used the 'step-down' design, with the floor recessed below the level of the frame members. Hudson has chosen to keep the seats reasonably high and the head room ample."

"As far as the reduction in size is concerned, the Jet is the shortest U.S. four door sedans (180.7 inches over all) has the shortest wheelbase (104.4 inches) is the narrowest (67.1 inches). It also has the least rear seat knee room (9 inches)."

"These cold figures might indicated the Jet is cramped, but that isn't the impression you get. Actually, the hip room is only 9/10 of an inch less than Mercury's. The rear seat knee room is the only dimension where the Jet is noticeably squeezed."
