5 cars that lost their rear seats for a very good reason

They say that where two fit, three fit, and where three fit, four fit... But this is not always the case and, depending on the case, there is a great reason behind it. That is why today we bring you 5 cars in which you will not be able to take your in-laws, your children or anyone other than your faithful co-driver. Why? For the simple reason that they have dispensed with their rear seats, and we assure you that it is for a very good reason .

"Sorry, it's just that my car only has two seats" , surely on some occasion you have wanted to say that phrase, and with models like the Toyota GR Corolla, the Mini JCW GP, the BMW M4 GTS, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 and You could say the Renault Clio V6 every time more than one person wanted to go with you in the car, especially if you don't like it.

5 cars that lost their rear seats for a very good reason

Toyota GR Corolla:

With the milestone of the GR Yaris still present, Toyota has taken the opportunity to build what is surely the most exultant sports compact of recent times, the GR Corolla

  • And it is that this has gone from being a conventional hybrid to go from A to B spending little to become the ideal circuit toy.
  • If we add to this the loss of the rear seats to save 30 kilos of weight, the set becomes more radical, making its intentions very clear.

 And it is that the Toyota GR Corolla is not interested in being the idyllic compact to carry your in-laws or children in the rear seats, but in the definitive tracktool .

Mini JCW GP:

As tradition stipulates, each generation of the Mini has its corresponding JCW GP variant, and the current one has not made an exception . With a production limited to 3,000 units, the Anglo-German compact quickly became the desire of many, especially thanks to its radical tuning.

And it is that its four-cylinder gives us 306 hp and 450 Nm of torque, figures that require not only a specific chassis tuning, but also the elimination of the rear seats to be able to install a reinforcement bar trained to offer more rigidity .


With the permission of the current BMW M4 CSL , and in the absence of more special versions of the German sports car, I dare to say that the previous M4 GTS is, by far, the most radical M4 ever built. And we are talking about a variant of 500 hp and 1,585 kilos of weight .

To this we must add modifications in brakes, suspension and the eradication of the rear seats. Why? Because of the compelling need to save weight and install a roll cage inside the M4 GTS

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500:

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 stands as the fastest and most radical Mustang in history, all thanks to a tuning and a V8 supercharged by compressor that develops a whopping 771 hp and 848 Nm of torque . These figures require a very specific context so that they reach the asphalt correctly.

To create it, the oval firm has chosen to modify all the elements, allowing its customers to even remove the rear seats to make it lighter and even install a roll cage if they wish .

Renault Clio V6:

Surely we are talking about the most mythical and charismatic sports utility of all time, the Renault Clio V6 . And it is blessed whoever had the wonderful idea of ​​taking a car designed to go around the city as was the second generation Clio , widen it and put a V6 in a central position.

Finding this new position for the engine in the Clio, the Renault engineers had to do without the rear seats, since otherwise the V6 would not fit . And yes, it seems to us a very good reason not to be able to take anyone other than your trusted co-driver in the Renault Clio V6.
