2015 Porsche Macan: Seats Could Be Better

November 24, 2014

2015 Porsche Macan S

Our 2015 Porsche Macan S has some darned good basic seats. Like our old 911, they're supportive and firm like a nice orthopedic shoe. After a day on the road, your back actually feels better.

Still, these seats could be better, and now that I've experienced that, I can't go back...

The seat controls that lead this article are found on our long-term car. These belong to a short-term Macan Turbo. It has more buttons and is more better.

To be more clear, our seats offer eight-way adjustment of seat height, seat cushion, backrest angle and fore/aft adjustment.

The more better seats (Adaptive Sport Seats with memory Package) have 18 adjustments including seat backrest and height, fore/aft, seat cushion inclination, seat cushion depth (thigh support), seat cushion side bolster and backrest bolster. With front heating, these partial leather seats cost $2,235 and, as a guy with long thighs, I'd say that the thigh support alone is worth that.

And while I'm at it, I'd spend $810 to get fully keyless entry/ignition. And maybe the air vents should be wrapped in leather...
