The middle rear middle seat is many people’s last choice, and it’s understandable why. You have a person to either side of you, the seat itself is often much smaller than the others and the floor isn’t flat, making it difficult to know where to put your feet. Luckily, there are some cars out there with rear middle seats that don’t completely suck. We’ve pulled together a list of 5 seat sedans that can actually seat 5 people comfortably thanks to generous hip and leg room. Sure, you're still odd man (or woman) out if you have to ride here, but things could be worse. You could be crammed in the back of a Scion iA.
