Sport Seat Comfort

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

I'm about 1000km (600 miles) into my new 2016 Sport, and the one thing I have noticed, is that the seats just aren't very comfortable for the driver. I've tried adjusting lumbar tension in the back, raising the seat up and down, and the sides of my ass still hurt after a long period of driving. The way the seats are bucketed, it appears to really push up against your butt. Now, I'm not a big guy (200 lbs, 6 feet tall), so I find it a bit strange that I'm having difficulty fitting into the seats properly.

 

Has anyone else noticed this? And if you have, does it work itself out after awhile (building your ass groove, so to speak).

 

Thoughts?

I've seen a few discussions about this on the seats in the current gen Edges. I think the discussion landed somewhere between the best seats ever and the worst seats ever depending on who was posting the reply... :)

 

Mine (2015 sport) seem to be fairly comfortable for me except on the back of my left leg. The left seat bolster always seems to have a pressure point that I can never quite adjust away. Other than that seems fine and I'm also pretty big (250 6'5")

Did you find after having your Edge for some time that it got better? Worse? About the same?

Try another Edge Sport at the dealership just to make it's not something particular to your car.

210 6'3 here and they are too short for my legs.

 

The lower bolstering is strange and I usually have to turn my body 10 degrees to the left to feel like the bolsters aren't squeezing up against my lower back.

2015 sport 6.0 and 175lbs seem fine to me but the seat AC on the back sucks even after the update

the butt portion is acceptable not the back :(

Not a bad idea, I think I'll do just this today. I don't recall the first Sport I test drove with this issue.

I can tell I have a couple of fingers of extra headroom after 6 months, so the seat base has softened up a bit.

I am 6'5" and 290lbs and the only complaint I have about the 15 sport seats is the short seat cushion but that works as a compromise as my 5'5" 130lbs spouse loves it.

I graduated from a '13 Edge Sport to a '16 Sport. The '13 at the time had very comfortable seats. In fact it's the only vehicle I've had where people actually made random comments about them. The new Sport feels just as comfortable to me. No complaints!

I'm experiencing the same thing with my 2015 Edge Titanium. Tried multiple positions but nothing helps. My ass just hurts. I have 12,000 km (7,500 miles) and nothing has improved. I even tried a thin cushion but that was just useless plus could not use the heated or cooled seats. This is my 3rd Edge but there won't be a 4th if they don't change the seat design.
