Interior space

Interior space is important in most cars, especially at certain times of the year. When looking for a new car, we often spend far too much time attending to the front, ignoring the assets in the back.

It's not all about room either. Some creature comforts would be nice back there too, such as...

Privacy Glass

Lots of cars are specified with privacy glass for style reasons, but it's much more important for keeping prying eyes away from the rear-seat goings-on.

Reclining Seats

To get in the optimum position, and be at your most comfortable during your time in the rear, reclining seats are essential.

Wipe-down Material

Leather or specially designed seats that are easily cleaned are a big bonus, especially if they're going to see a lot of action.

Heated Rear Seats

A bit of added heat can make cold mornings more glorious, improving the whole experience.

Here are the best cars we can think of that have the best back seats for... activities.

Jaguar XJ

Jaguar XJ

As we know, reclining seats can make all the difference, and the Jaguar XJ has them, if the right option box was ticked. Not only that, the brochure for the now-defunct XJ says that the back seats provides "four inches of longitudinal movement", which is more than enough, right?

That same document also states that the empty front passenger seat can be moved at the press of a button, to "increase leg room and aid access". Finally, the optional heated rear-seat massage function is there to make sure you have a really good time.

Land Rover Discovery

Land Rover Discovery

For those who are a little bit more adventurous, the back seats of the Land Rover Discovery will fit three adults in, no questions asked. This is a big car, and the rear is equally large.

There's lots of little things to make your back seat experience more enjoyable too; range-topping models get things like easily-cleaned leather trim and reclining rear seats. If you get bored, simply turn on the rear-seat entertainment system that has screens in the back of the headrests.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Long-heralded as the epitome of luxury-class travel for business people, there has been many a deal sealed in the back of a Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Look through the brochure of an S-Class and you'll find phrases such as "make all your senses happy" and "delight your eyes, ears and hands" all of which bodes well for fans of the back seat, and it's certainly roomy enough for a couple of adults back there. The S-Class provides back seat passengers with an abundance of toys too, if you prefer to do things by yourself.

Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer

Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer

Citroën's Touch and Feel philosophy (that's the name of their trim levels) means that their back seats are as comfy as can be.

The C4 SpaceTourer is certainly "Grand" - it's a sizeable 2117mm wide. That leaves plenty of room in the rear to do whatever you need to do, and the benefit of reclining seats makes life a lot easier - as does the fact that even the front passenger seat folds flat to "accommodate really long loads", according to Citroën's website.

Skoda Superb

Skoda named this car quite literally, especially in the context of the back seats. They are guaranteed to give you a superb experience, every time.

It's known as one of the most roomy cars on sale, meaning you have plenty of space to go about your business. In fact, the boot of the estate model is so large with the rear seats folded down that we're pretty sure you could fit a mattress in there... if you were that way inclined.

Vauxhall Grandland X

Vauxhall Grandland X

As Vauxhall's largest car, you would expect that there's plenty of interior room, and this is certainly true of the Grandland X SUV.

The rear seats are large and girthy, enabling you to get perfectly comfortable no matter the time of day. Speaking of which, get an Elite Nav model and you'll benefit from a panoramic sunroof, allowing you see the stars at night, providing you're in the right position.
