CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

Perhaps even more than the steering wheel, pedals, and shifter, the part of your car that you have the most contact with are the seats. When you think about it that way, we ought to be giving them a lot more attention.

But what makes a seat good? Is the best seat necessarily the most comfortable one? If hat’s the case, I’d have to say that the seats Volvo is putting in the S90 and V90 are the best ones I’ve had the pleasure to sit in. But while they’re comfortable, I’m not sure the driving position suits. me all that well, so maybe. comfort is overrated.

In terms of aesthetics, I think it’s hard to beat the. upholstery on Ferrari’s classic Daytona seats, which you can get on most models bearing the prancing horse. The piping and stitching make it clear to your eyes (and your back) that you’re sitting in a special car, even if they might not be all that comfy.
