Depending on how you collide, both the front passenger seat and the back seats are the most dangerous seats in the car if you do not put on seatbelts.
This is mainly because you cannot just say which spot in a car is the most dangerous.

Is the back seat safer than the front?
People sitting in the backseat only have seat belts to protect them from impact during a car crash. “It’s not that the rear seat has become less safe, it’s that the front seat has become more safe over time,” said David Harkey, president of the IIHS.
Is the middle seat safest?
While it’s usually the most dreaded seat in the vehicle, researchers have repeatedly found that the middle seat in the back is the safest one in the car. If you’ve got a child small enough to be placed in a car seat, the best position is also in the middle, but facing the rear of the car, at least until the age of 2.
