26 Jun 2001
By BRUCE NEWTON
EACH seat uses fabric upholstery and is designed to ensure long-journey comfort, to enable easy ingress/egress and to provide a natural seating posture, even for a smaller female occupant. The front bucket seats were tailored using anthropometric data to fit smaller drivers while still comfortably accommodating larger adults. The front seat design also minimises fatigue by optimising the distribution of pressure applied to the user's back and buttocks. Only XLT drivers gain the benefit of seat base angle and lumbar adjustment. Two-notch, height adjustable head restraints are provided for all outboard occupants. Each front seat offers 240mm of slide adjustment to enable a comfortable position by users with the most common heights and builds.
