What is the question ? If we have back pain ? Mine is partial leather with power-adjustable lumbar support on driver seat, and there is no pain at all, very comfortable and supportive !!

I think what they are trying to say is that we are not sure what you are asking for in the poll. I have selected leather. I have part leather in my excel with the electric lumbar. Granted I only drive about 20 miles a day but so far it is very comfortable.

I noticed on my test drives that the seats in the excel were far more comfortable for me. I am a big guy and felt better supported with the part leather than the cloth in the entry level dynamic.
How far do you drive ans on average?

Exactly. I can't seem to find a question to the poll.

So much anger... As I mentioned, there's no question to be found, so there's no way to answer. Even when I see what other's have chosen in a poll, I can't figure out what those choices mean :/ Do all the respondents experience back pain?

I can also see Ans point of view. There are better ways of asking what was meant. Came over a little confrontational. And before you say anything to me I am just trying to meet you both in the middle as I can see where each side is coming from.

I think you also have to consider differences in the way language is used here given all the different places people are from.
What is "rude/abrupt" to some is perfectly normal to others. I know this as I lost the plot on some other posts but on reflection it was just a matter of language difference.

There are better things to fight over than car seats. Things like anti bird missile systems to keep my car clear ;)

English is the only language I speak, and have to say mine is rather excellent. :D But I also did not understand the poll and the question was multi-faceted, it could have been:

1) Does anyone historically find that different seat coverings produce more back pain, if so which one?

or, perhaps more applicable in this case:

2) Does anyone experience back pain driving their C-HR, if so what seat covering do you have?

So I don't think well thought out or executed, sadly not even an 'e for effort' :cry:

Coupled with the fact that most of us haven't had our car for long enough to work out if it is long term comfortable or uncomfortable. I've done 1500 miles, the longest drive being 189 miles and find my cloth C-HR seats superbly supportive. That said, my jaguar and Audi both have full heated leather and, in the case of the jaguar, I've covered as many as 30k miles in one year and have always arrived as refreshed/relaxed as when I left...even on a 400 mile single journey to Glasgow without stopping was fine....sorry but my bladder couldn't hold out longer! :oops:

So my findings would support what Merly mentioned that it's about ergonomics and your own body posture/seat position more than the covering.

PS: Since I didn't understand it, I didn't answer either :lol:
PPS: 381 views and 7 votes (less than 2%) would indicate that most others didn't get it either.

I had a manual Volvo before renowned for comfortable seats. I was however getting lower back pain and pain down my left hamstring and calf following a change areas which meant I started spending more time in the car.
The left leg pain was due to the constant changing of gears on country roads.
Since getting my C-HR I have been much better. Being an automatic has really helped.
Regularly spend 4 hours a day in the car.
I find the actual seats very comfortable and better than my Volvo was.

Car seats are very much a love or hate affair for me. As I mentioned before I'm a big chap so the seat is a big selling point for me. As cars go the seats in the excel as standard are some of the comfiest I've ever had. However the lumbar support doesn't seem to sit in the right place for my weird shape so I do not use it and have it set to its minimum.

I think the seat base is quite long also so people with short legs may find it hard to find their best position. Took me quite a while.

I've got the Excel so part leather. It's taken a week to get my seat totally feeling right and comfortable for me.

It was far too high when it came so persistence with lowering the seat, moving the back and then bringing the whole seat further forward and then messing about with the lumbar support and changing the positioning of the steering wheel has got me there.

I've changed from a very low Astra GTC so I think the change to this has taken some settling in.

We have a 250 mile drive tomorrow. So that will be a good test! :D

Just a shame the passenger seat doesn't have the same options to change seating position.

Im just over 6 foot and wide so it feels like im sat in a dodgem car. kinda hunches me over. of course the display car didnt do this. I dont care about material but i didnt expect the seat to be a different shape to the leather. fabric btw

It was one of the big differences for me between the two specs. The leather seats at least to me feel much better constructed and extremely supportive.

I would also proffer that people with bad backs will differ of their opinion about which seat is better! :) A little bit like mattresses on a bed :)

I had leather seats in my Octavia RS. Too heat in the summer! After a small trip my back was feel like running and not driving! Never again leather for me. Also my opinion is that fabric "hugs" body much better than leather in the turns and prevents sliding.

That is why part leather is far better. The panel on the flat of your back is fabric but leather supports your surrounding muscle tissue .
