Because you don't have a clear view ahead - bits of your field of vision are of the interior, which is moving differently to the exterior, causing nausea as the brain struggles to fit these "incompatible" elements together (getting confused with "I'm not moving" and "I'm moving forward fast" at the same time).
In the front, you can fill almost your entire field of vision with the road ahead, resulting in nice steady, more predictable movement that your brain can handle more easily.
Beats me. I get car sick in the front. Especially when I have to drive!
» Answer from Alistair McIntyre Answer given 3 years 241 days ago.When you sit in the back you are close to being in the centre of the wheelbase, the rear wheels are usualy quite a way back, and the front wheels are way ahead. In the front you are just behind the front wheels. In front you get the up and down motion of the front suspension. in the back you alsp feel the front supension as a lean forward, but you have to put up with the rise and sink of the real suspension as well. Short version you feel more movement in the back.
