2012 Toyota Camry SE: Comfortable Backseat For Adults

April 19, 2012


If you don't have kids and child safety seats to schlep around, the Camry still works out fine. In fact, I think the Camry's got one of the more comfortable back seats in the midsize sedan class.

Now, everybody is going to be different, but for me, the Camry's rear seats are angled in such a way to give more thigh support and a more relaxed overall position than the norm. This helps out comfort during long drives. There's also enough legroom and headroom that most adults should fit just fine. Padding for the door armrests is also decent.

The lack of adjustable rear head restaints is the only issue that I see. They're properly positioned for me (5 foot 10 inches), but someone taller might want them to go higher.
