2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Hard Seats

October 22, 2014

2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe

I'm going to have to agree with Executive Editor Ed Hellwig with his post back in July, the seats in the 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe aren't as comfortable as they should be.  

The stuffing, in the seatback in particular, is quite hard and after a couple of hours in the car you definitely notice that, well, you're noticing the seats. On the other hand, the lateral support is excellent, the bolstering holds you in place through corners nicely.

So would the hard seats be a deal-breaker?

For me, no (though it's not like I'm exactly in the market to buy this thing). There are so many other aspects about this car that are fantastic that I'd be willing to put up with seats on the firm side.

But, it's worth stating there are many seats out there with equally superb lateral support plus all-day comfort. Jag should have done a better job here, whether this car was designed as a daily driver or a weekend toy.
