sur la plage arriere: Qu'est-ce que ça veut dire ?

Bonjour Beverley !

In a car, "la plage arrière" is that plateau above the trunk area, behind the head rests of the back seats, where you can put your coat, a bubble head etc...   :)

In English, I found that you can call it "quarterdeck, back shelf, rear parcel shelf,...".

I hope that's helpful!
Bonne journée !
