If you think about it, car seats are probably one of the most important features of a modern vehicle. Secure, the engine gives you power and the wheels keep you moving, but the seats make sure you’re nestled well behind the controls. An area that should not be skimped on!
And with so much pressure on those bits of foam, leather and springs up front, we had to think about which cars might have been equipped with the best seats of all time?
There are many factors that can go into making a really great car seat. The riding position has to be just right, the controls have to be simple enough to adapt to your body shape, and you want enough padding to keep you comfortable in even the longest jam†
In addition, there are properties such as heating that must be taken into account, as well as the fit and finish of the fabrics and materials used. This chair talk is no laughing matter!
Sure, cars like the Rolls Royce Phantom or a Maybach might be hailed as one of the smoothest and most luxurious cars to drive, but what other seats out there could give Europe’s best a run for its money?
I am personally a big fan of the seats in the Kia Sorento† when you sit with the captain chair you feel as if you are in a beautiful, commanding position. The leather finish is soft to the touch and there’s plenty of padding to support even the most bony, lanky people.
What’s more, when you factor in the incredible cooling power of these vented seats, you’re looking at one of the most comfortable rides you can hope for.
But that’s just my pick for the best seats out there, what do you think should be on the list? Head over to the comments section below and let us know your pick for the best car seats of all time. We’ll wrap up some of the most comfortable in a slideshow tomorrow.
