That's a tough one. I'm a fan of buckets but now sorta want to put a bench back in my 51 pickup. Maybe a split bench is the perfect answer? LOL

I like a bucket seat however, I hate the new bolstered seats of many new cars today. I don't want to be held in so tightly as in a sports car. I much prefer to have a SUV seat in my sedan...wider & flatter. The bolsters bother my sciatic.

Best of both worlds.

Modern cars with floor shift automatics and enormous consoles make me claustrophobic. I like bench seat with column shift!

I once saw a bumper sticker that said the problem with bucket seats is that not everyone's bucket is the same size.

Bench seats suck if you are a tall person riding with a short driver. You get smashed up against the dash with the driver.

I have only had bench seats in my '76 Nova and I guess they were handy from cramming lots of people in the car...hated them otherwise, but it probably didn't help that they were red vinyl.
I have really liked the adjustable lumbar support in my last two cars and doubt I would be getting that in a bench seat...maybe I'm wrong??

I liked bench seats in high school when driving with a cute girl, haha.

I prefer bucket seats now though, much more comfortable.

Wife and I really love the buckets in our 2017 Buick Regal GS, hug your body and are very comfortable for long drives. cheers

Bucket seats are slightly safer and better for sporting around, but don't let you fidget much. Bench seats are healthier for long trips - that's my preference.
