    Default Why Does Toyota Grande Has Hard Seats?

    Salam Guys!!!

    I want to ask why does Toyota Grande Has Hard Seats...And What I noticed is that Even The Non Grande One Which Has Fabric Seats are more softer than Grande!!!

    So if you are paying Rs.2.5 Million for a car...You deserve to get good seats!!!

    And How Strange is this that Even XLI/GLI which Are Much Cheaper Than Grande Have More Softer Seats Than Grande...I Have Bought Grande...My Father Doesn't Likes its Seats...He Says Ke Ab Foam Zaroor Dalwana Parega Seaton Mein!!!

    However Civic Always Had Good Seats...I Wish Toyota make some Improvements Now!!!

    your criteria of good seats are "softness only"

    have you ever sat in any BMW sedan?

    Own Grande and agree to this. Mine were so hard that the springs started making squeaking noises when put pressure. Took the case with 3S nd got both front seats replaced with softer ones. Upon investigation came to know that there are multiple seats vendors Toyota is dealing with one of them is making hard seats specially for Grande For some unknown reason. So not all grande seats r hard it's your luck if that vendor comes your way.
    Personally I guess harder seats tends to last longer Before getting deformed.

    Bro My Taste Is That I Neither Like Just Fabric Seats Nor Leather and Not Also Leather Ke Ooper Fabric!!!

    Now So Much Softness Also I Don't Like Like Halwaa...And Should Also Not Be That Sakht!!!

    I Do Like Bucket Type Seats...But I Like The Combination Of Sportiness of Bucket Seats Coupled With Softness of Fabric Seats Of A Normal Family Sedan!!!

    Grande Has Got Bucket Leather Seats...And On It I Have Put Fabric Seat Covers...So Currently The Seats Are Of Fabric Which I Like But They Are Rock Hard...So I Guess The Type Of Sportylicious Seats Which Has Combination of Sport and Comfort Which I Am Dreaming Of...For That I'll Just Have To Put Some Foam Like 1 Inch In My Grande's Seats and Then I Guess:

    It Will Be A Pleasure To Drive And Will Be My Dream Seats...Wohooo!!!

    not everyone has a fat @5s to absorb all the bumps in our roads
    n if the seats are hard, less cushion for absorption is left

    car seats are meant to position the driver so the driver doesnt go to sleep. e.g. lets take my mercedes benz seats - they are not soft in any way, they have a spring chassis though - But they are nicely contoured so you can sit in it all day long.

    OTOH, my chevy has soft seats - sofa soft but terrible back design - good thing its a bench seat at the front.

    it seems that you are not liking the contouring of the toyota seats rather than softness - and I agree with you 100%, toyota has not made good seats since the 90s, even in the crown, markx, mark2, land cruiser etc - all of them are completely useless when it comes to comfort.

    The website below are who make the seats you find in Pakistani cars

    click

    they also have sports car seats- but they are not sold in Pakistan anywhere.

    Then how can you explain the difference in seats even within Grande ? how can single vendor produce seats of different specs for sam variant ?

    Toyota also have opted for multi vendor approach for batteries as well.

    There can be only one reason for hard seats in more expensive models and that is to increase cabin and leg space.
