FREELANDER seats are claimed to use carefully selected materials, such as high-density cold-cure polyurethane foam, dual-hardness foams and high-durability fabrics, combined with seat suspensions that are claimed to be tuned to harmonise with the vehicle's suspension characteristics. All models have driver's seat lumbar adjustment - a new feature on the three-door - however none are adjustable for height. The ES features leather seats, with the front pews able to be heated. The front seatbelts have load limiters and pretensioners, but are not adjustable for height on the three-door. The front seats have a tilt function for rear seat access rather than a more useful tilt-slide action, though the restricted front seat travel means there's always some space behind the front seats to step into.
