5. More Comfortable Accommodations
The Rapide S coddles passengers with supple leather and gorgeous contrast-color stitching. For the most part riders in the front seat are well cared for, though the cabin could stand to be a little wider. However, the back buckets are another story entirely.
These are some of the most awkward rear seats in any vehicle on the market today. If you don’t have scoliosis before you wedge yourself in there you will after even a quick trip around the block in this Aston Martin.
The chairs are strangely shaped and quite uncomfortable. The lower cushion is lumpy and kind of misshapen. Headroom for even moderate-height riders is a scarce commodity as well.
The Fusion wins no awards for its back seat; in fact it’s probably one of the tightest in the midsize segment. Still, its aft-most accommodations are worlds ahead of steerage in the Rapide S.
