Car reviews - Mitsubishi - Magna - Ralliart sedan
24 Jun 2002
DESIGNED exclusively for Ralliart Magna, the "Ralliart"-embroidered front sports bucket seats are upholstered in a hard-wearing woven material featuring a lairy two-tone design that is carried through to all four door inserts and the rear bench. Not as classy as leather and feeling a little bulkier than some, the heavily bolstered and highly adjustable front pews are nevertheless comfortable and very supportive - both laterally and under the thighs - first time around and during long hauls. Like all Magnas, the Ralliart's seats slide fore and aft via an outboard lever, similar to the recline handle just to its rear, while Falcon-style two-way seat cushion angle is adjustable via two rotating knobs - also located on the outboard side. Lumbar support graces both front seats too, adjustable across four positions via a lever on the inboard edge of the seatbacks. All five of Ralliart Magna's seating positions offer a three-point lap/sash seatbelt, although only the four outboard passengers get head restraints - the rear pair being moulded into the rear seatback and the front items being adjustable for height.
