2015 Lexus RC F: Aggressive Looking Seats Provide Everyday Comfort
January 22, 2015
After a few hundred miles behind the wheel of our 2015 Lexus RC F I'm surprised by how much I like the seats. I say surprised because they don't immediately strike you as great seats the minute you slide into them.
As aggressive as they look, the bolstering doesn't grab your backside like some other cars in this category. Not sure if this is a conscious decision to make the seats more comfortable for a wider range of drivers or just the way Lexus thinks aggressive seats should feel.
Regardless of the reasoning, the seats have a near perfect shape for my frame which makes them supremely comfortable during everyday driving. And this is without a multitude of adjustments. During moderate cornering loads, there's enough bolstering to keep me in place. Not sure how well they'll do on a more serious road, but I'm guessing just fine. Overall, they seem like a solid compromise between everyday comfort and the aggressive bolstering one would expect in a Lexus "F" car.
