    You'll probably have to move up to at least full size. I'm not even sure there's any full size sedans that offer a bench seat in the front anymore.

    The days of the six passenger sedan are officially over; with the death of the current generation Chevrolet Impala, the front bench seat is now gone from the North American marketplace.

    Yea, a real problem these days since everything is/has moved to bucket seats. Along with your 6 person issue will be space for luggage. Might need two cars.

    I rented a Fusion from Dollar last year, but ended up taking a Grand Marquis since we would have to wait a bit for a Fusion. It had a front bench and seated 6.

    Yea... I was going to say you need to rent a Mercury Grand Marquis or Ford Crown Victoria as those cars have a bench seat in the front which can seat 3.

    Otherwise a minivan...
