2009 Nissan 370Z Touring: Seats Done Right

May 18, 2009

Nissan has at least one thing figured out with the new 370Z -- the seats. Notice that their center sections are fabric -- synthetic suede, actually. I had a chance to drive our long-term car on a track last week and, despite the fact that the seats don't fit me perfectly (none do), I wasn't flopping all over and trying to hold myself in place. This is because the "leather" seats which come with the Touring Package actually have fabric on the seat bottom and backrest. On full-leather seats I would have struggled against physics.

Also, see that center bolster between where the driver's legs would be? That's a gimmick. Worse yest, it's a legacy gimmick from the last Z which does nothing. Nissan should do away with it. Otherwise, this is a good setup for hard driving with ample adjustability and good driver retention.
