The full-sized sedan is back.
Or at least the back row seats. According to USA Today, luxury automakers like Acura, Audi, Lexus, and Cadillac are increasing the legroom in the second row. Acura announced earlier this year that its upcoming all-new RL flagship sedan will have the most legroom in its class while Lexus added more than four inches to its all new ES sedan.What's real interesting, though, is what's driving automakers to increase the roominess. (No, it's not for teens to make out.) China, one of the biggest car markets in the world, likes roomy rear-row seating. Many luxury vehicles are used as limos in the country, which by definition requires a roomy back end. Other reasons for the increased legroom include older, more affluent car owners transporting their adult friends to making business clients feel special. Our take? Make the back seats roomy enough and maybe, just maybe, Americans will finally ditch their crossovers and even SUVs. via USA Today
