14: Bench Seats
If you were a kid in the ’70s and ’80s, you probably rode around on a bench seat. Every grandma and family had a car that had a bench seat, which was great because most coupes and sedans could seat six people. A feat that most modern sedans were never able to incorporate. Fortunately, bench seating went the way of the mammoth and the 1990s saw the end of it.
Turns out that consumers fancied having a center console as opposed to another passenger. The Crown Victoria was one of the last modern sedans to offer a bench seat for consumers. Other than that, bench seats in sedans are all but a relic from a bygone era that left the automotive industry quite some time ago.
