Jaguar Has Apparently Found The Perfect Driving Position
Did you know there’s a “correct” way to sit in your car? There’s a right way to adjust your seat for maximum comfort, control and safety and Jaguar has published a step by step guide to help you find the best driving position.
It should be applicable to most modern cars since seats are almost all adjustable. If yours aren’t, you might be out of luck.
To get started, take everything out of your pockets since having bulky items in the way can affect the way you sit. Next, sit your butt as close to the back of the seat as possible. Be sure to have your whole back in contact with the backrest and once your back is in position, adjust the recline so that your pelvis and spine are aligned.
Your thighs should rest comfortably on the seat and the distance from the pedals should be measured by the bend of your knees. Jaguar recommends that your knee should be slightly bent when the pedals are fully down because you want to maintain control of your feet and the pedals. This also applies to your elbows, so they should be slightly bent when reaching for the wheel.
Jaguar notes that your shoulders should always be touching the seat (even when turning) and the headrest should be at the same height as the top of your head. Try it out and let us know how it works!
