Some examples of full-size cars include the Toyota Avalon, the Chrysler 300, the Nissan Maxima and the Kia Cadenza. A full-size car is classified as a four-door sedan that is larger than a mid-size car and has the capacity for five or six passengers and their luggage.
Through the 1970s, full-size car models were larger than modern full-size cars, with benches for three adults each in the front and back along with a spacious trunk. Modern full-size models come in under the 80-inch width once required for the full-size distinction. Luxury brands such as Cadillac and Buick still top the list of the most popular full-size cars as of 2015.
As Americans become more conscious about fuel efficiency, the demand for full-size vehicles has declined. In Europe, full-size cars are very rare and are considered a luxury.
