the back seat is for the bitches...


ok, im joking... seriously ladies, im kidding....



compare it to a 4th gen is about the best i can say, its not going to have crap tons of leg room i can guarantee you that. there's a reason its listed as a 2+2 seater and not a 4 seater

but since ur 5'10", just have someone else drive and you can sit in back...lol

Wife wants to know if you'll be at Indy and if so, what will you be wearing?
A back seat only a 9 year old could love. Friends? You don't need no stinkin friends, they'll just barf in your floorboard and spill their soda on your seat.

2+2's are generally not very comfortable in the back seat. It's good to put your stuff and maybe a kid. Will they fit? Yea.. will they be like a pretzel and crying to get out every 15 mins? Aye.

I had 3 people in the back for about 3.5 hours drive to the beach with my 78. It was living hell.

I wonder if they will be fold down to open up the passthru?

If you want Comfort for rear get Malibu or Cobalt sedans.

That's what I always said. I buy the car for MY comfort, no one else. If they don't wanna ride, they can drive their own car.

I've always brought adults in my Camaro's. But never for LONG rides. Mostly under 1.5 hours. If not less than 45 mins 80% of the time.

I managed to stuff... 8 people in my '82 Camaro back in High School. LOL

Me driving, 2 in the passengers seat, 2 in each of the rear seats and one in the trunk. haha That was great.

I'm sure I could have gotten at least one more in the trunk if we'd had to.

Probably won't be too comfy...

You can always opt for a G8 if you want Camaro-like performance in a sedan.

I'm buying this car for me, and me alone. My girl will ride passenger, but anyone else who wants to ride in back will do so at their own risk, and without so much as a peep of complaint.

The back seat is for the dog or the friend acting like one.

I am sure someone will find a way to quote "Do it" in the backseat somehow. Never worked for me I am too big and clumbsy. But with the A Pillars it seems perfect for the old style drive thru rock a boat.

I'm looking forward to my Camaro having a small rear seat. It absolves me of all driving responsibility when the coworkers go out for lunch. Happy hour? You're never designated driver.

Yeh, it will be kinda of a crush for two average people 16+. I'm not built like a box, but I measure about 20" shoulder to shoulder. With only 42" shoulder room, yeh, not going to happen.

Doesnt matter, since I will be driving. However, two girls would fit nicely back there

Are there any pics of the back seat out there yet? I assume it will be like the last generation with the bucket style seat. Kind of hard to get in/out but not my problem. Anyway a good stereo should take care of anybody complaining from the back seat.

Sometimes in a 2+2 the best is a 2+1. Normal driver postition and shortest up front with seat all the way up then one sits in back with enough legroom for blood circulation.
