It's a question we get a lot on Ask.Cars.com: What cars have a front bench seat?

We've always been able to answer: the Chevrolet Impala.

But not after 2013, when the redesigned 2014 Chevy Impala hits dealers early in the year. It will feature two front buckets like every other passenger car on sale today.

We know logically that front bench seats aren't in demand enough to warrant their existence, but many people cling to a nostalgic love for the feature. Let us know in the comments below if you miss front bench seats or if you plan to run out and get one of the last new Impalas to have one.
