Unhappy Why rear seats room is so little

Hellou !
i am newby here, maybe wrong thread and poor englich but so what.

I drive 500km for i see first 2010 ( in Finland: Kimi Räikkönen, Mika Häkkinen, Juha Kankkunen, Mika Salo, Tommi Mäkinen, Markus Gronholm, Mikko hirvonen etc).
http://www.abhd.nl/video/chevrolet-c...van-mika-salo/
Down payment in my pocet i see this very nice car, but ounly 2+2childen, no 2+2.
Maybe i stay my ould -80 (stock LS-7 11,57/193km/h), because rate is so
large and ouver here definitive price is ( $129000 ).
Why rear seats room is so little??
Maybe Z28 or Touring model is coming and 1,5" more back seats, legs and heads no fit, it is so limited backside, and maybe more users find this car.
How limited is convertible back seats?

Rear seat room is not going to improve for any future models of the Camaro. Who cares? You sit in the front anyway!

It's just the nature of this car. It's a 2 + 2. However, you can fit 4 adults in a Camaro. I've done it many times.

Also you should find the convertible to be the same for rear seating accomodations.

(Of course with less trunk space, right? )

It is not a 4-door sedan or an SUV, so rear seat room is going to be limited. But for short drives (maybe 45 minutes to 1.5 hours) it's plenty comfortable for the average adult.

maybe you need to look at the Cadillac CTS-V.

That one has a back seat that has room for adults.

Its a CAMARO 2 door coupe!!!!

Definiton (Websters Dictionary):
Coupe - a car with two doors and front seats and a luggage compartment

No backseats according to the definition so the fact you have them you can be happy!!

If you're interested in a Camaro, performance and looks should be about the only important things. Not space or luxury features, its not some luxury coupe or a sedan. It's a reborn American sports car.

Oh and its small but two adults WILL fit in the back seat, both my mom and dad fit fine, so children will shouldnt be a problem.

Convertibles will have even less space in the back seats due to storage of the top. Shoulder room, in particular, is usually affected.

Maybe the Fins never got into the whole muscle car thing? I could see how someone not familiar with them would be confused about the seat size.

I do wonder what the car would look like if they pushed the rear seat a couple inches back. Extend the roof a couple inches as well then a sharper angle on the rear window while moving the rear speakers to the sides rather than behind the rear seats. Between the fold down seats and small opening losing the trunk space wouldn't matter. I don't see it as a big deal but a little extra space would've been nice as long as it didn't mess with the aerodynamics or cause some structural issue.

As for the Z/28 having a larger back seat, that seems very unlikely. I would suggest taking a look at the one of the Cadillac CTS's or a Dodge Challenger if it's a big problem for you.

If you look closely you'll see seatbelts! It's something of an emergency/disaster relief feature for evacuating before a hurricane or suddenly finding yourself having to haul small children.

That back seat is only there to keep ins. costs down....... And for the comedy feature when you watch a full grown adult try and fit themselves back there.

I'm good with the Camaro having 2 smallish rear seats. I grew up having to twist and bend getting into the backseat of a '70 Nova and now my kids will have the same great experience getting into the backseat of my Camaro.

Oh, and if the back seat size is a problem, go get a Dodge Charger. I parked next to a guy this weekend while going out for lunch and he said he really wished he could have gotten a new Camaro (had a '67 and '83) but ended up stuck in a Dodge Charger SRT8 instead because he needed 4 doors for his 2 kids. Must be nice to have a Dad that gives up a 2-door coupe so his kids can get in and out of the backseat easier. Mine will have to suffer.

Smile The Camaro doesn't have the smallest back seats

The Camaro doesn't have the smallest back seats. The 911 has back seats, at least the older ones. They fold down and provide a shelf, which is how I've most often seen the car configured. Look at the bright side, no one will ask you to drive the car pool.

The car is not for all. Sacrifices made for speed and style. Not going to get more space till next model.

There is ALOT of leg room for the driver and passenger, if you scoot up the front seats you could get someone back there, but an adult is still not going to be super comfortable...

Personally, I plan on planting my a$s in the driver seat and leavin it there

given the long wheelbase, if you look at other generations of Camaros---you would expect more room then there is.
(alot of room in front--thats where it went)
But as with the whole car--they gave up everything in the name of form (or style)--no function.

My third gen has a HUGE backseat! A big Camaro and a small one, and the smaller one having a bigger backseat, that's just weird.
