Were split rear seats really added in '96?
My '95 has them, the reason could be that it was made in September '95.

Whomever put the picture of the SVT up, thank you. The image doesn't have a copyright tag so may be removed, however.

There seems to be some wrong info in there.
The split seats were standard on the LX and SE for '95 model year but not available on the GL. In '96 it became an option for the GL.

While it is a nice SVT pictured, they really should use a picture of a stock one.
