Bucket seats are the most popular seats available,due to the comfort,and support to the legs and upper body in which they provide. Bucket seats were first introduced in imported vehicles, which were fast and had the ability to take sharp turns,meanwhile keeping the vehicle's passenger's in place. Vehicles which have bucket seats typically have them in the front seats, while standard bench seats are located in the back. Some luxury vehicles may have bucket seats for all the passengers,however this method is costly, and takes up more room than a standard bench seat. Bucket seats rose to popularity in the late 1960’s due to the added comfort they provide, and their ability to create a middle isle where cargo may be stored.
With the advent of bucket seats came advances in vehicle safety. The most notable of these advances was the seat belt, which holds passenger's firmly in their seat, in the event of an accident, or quick stop. Seat belts are easily mounted on the bucket seat, because it is not as wide as a bench seat,therefore anchoring points on either end of the bucket are easy to access. Other safety measures such as improved padding, and head rests were implemented, to aid in the event of a crash.
One of the greatest advantages bucket seats have are their ability to fold, and be adjusted to fit any body. This feature is especially useful for people who are extremely tall, or short because it enables them to adjust themselves to a comfortable position. Bucket seats are typically wrapped in leather, cloth, or carpet material, in order to increase comfort and match the vehicle's interior.
