2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Worst. Seats. Ever.
September 17, 2010
( Thanks to Kurt Niebuhr for the seat shot. Turns out, taking good pictures of a cars seat is damned near impossible. At least for me, today.)
The Honda Accord, and thus, the 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour has the worst seats in the world, bar none --- and I mean NONE. Elise, Ariel Atom, Grand Marquis, all better than the Crosstour. You've heard about this before, recently, but it's worth mentioning again.
The leather's nice enough and it doesn't have the fabric scrunching that plagues the CR-V and Odyssey, but they're still awful.
Sitting on the Crosstour's seat is like sitting on a pregnant lady who's had her legs removed at the knees: There's no thigh support, and something round is constantly prodding your lower back. This is some sort of orthopedic seating design that only one person I've ever met finds pleasant but that some doctor in Japan probably claims improves something by something else.
We bring up a lot of small, irritating interior details on this blog; "I like x." "I dislike x." "X in the sun hurts my eyes." but often they're things that, with time, you'd just get used to. A seat that makes you want to stab yourself in the face to stop the pain in your back? Yeah, not so much.
Too bad, too, because the Crosstour's got a nice ride and well, the fewer sedans there are on the road the better. But you won't see me with one.
