2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: Thigh Support

August 14, 2012


Earlier, we discussed my love for our BMW X3's dedicated, extendable thigh support. (One of you called it hamstring support which might be more accurate.) Our Jag, unsurprisingly, has this feature, but does it in a worse way than the BMW.

Instead of having an extendable portion at the front of the seat, the Jag slides the ENTIRE seat bottom forward. Sure, it gives you a longer seat bottom, but it's also less comfortable, moving you along with the seat, and causes a funny gap between the seatback and the seat cushion.

Functional? Yes. Absolutely. As good as the X3? Nope.
