Bucket seat means?

A bucket seat is a seat contoured to hold one person, distinct from a flat bench seat designed to fit multiple people.

Bucket seats first appeared after World War II, making their debut in small European cars with floor-mounted shifter and parking brake lever. They are typically standard in front in fast cars to keep drivers and other passengers in place when turning at speed. Rear "bucket seats" are typically hybrids of the bench and true bucket seats, being contoured generally like the latter but fixed in place, even when divided by a centre console, and thus lacking a free-standing bucket seat's front-rear and backrest angle adjustability.
