Electrically adjustable driver seat?

Post by Polo » Wed Apr 25, 2018 2:09 pm

When moving the electric driver seat forward and backward is it slow to move?

Just wanted to know because I am short and have to sit close to the steering wheel, so when I get in my car (manual seat) I have to move the driver seat all the way forward and then I move it backwards again when I get out.

I also wonder if the manual or electric have more or less movement than the other? For example, does the electric seat move forwards/backwards and up/down less than the manual would? (I also tend to have my car's seat in higher position to help me see better).

Not particularly slow but slower than releasing a handle and pushing it all the way back or forward for sure. The electric seat is better for free adjustment, height and lumbar.

Thanks AndyE14. That's good to hear it's better for free adjustment.

I thought only the driver's seat was electrically adjustable and the passenger seat would remain manual adjustment, but I have just been reading through the manual and noticed it says:
"The front seats can also be electrically adjusted when the ignition is switched off"

Does that mean the passenger seat is also electric?

In Sweden do you have the option to choose electrical seats on the driver seat or both front seats. I did only take driver seat. It was not a big difference in price but I had to stop somewhere when ticking the boxes :mrgreen:

if you share the car, especially if the other driver is one of those people who changes every setting, electic seat without memory would drive you bonkers. It's the one thing I had on a car in the past that I really miss.
