Checked out the ELR last night, for the seats. No test drive.
-bench front features a bolster that extends about an extra inch
-power rake of the bench much nicer than the Volt’s lack of support/flatter bench
-More cushion, but only marginally, kind of dissappointing.
-Lumbar support didn’t stick up/down/out that much
-Lowest seat setting higher than the Volt’s manual seat, a bummer at 6′ but i was not into the headliner
-lateral support effectively the same

I’d consider swapping seats, but for less money than if they were an improvement in more ways. That’s what drove the visit. A bench that rakes up, for folks with a tall inseam, really helps support the legs and get the weight off the butt during those 1.5+ hour commutes/trips. I’ve seen other power seats that don’t go as low as their manual counterparts.

Not great news, as I'm over 6 feet tall. I don't want my head rubbing the headliner... do you sit abnormally upright?! :lol:

I guess I won't know until I actually find one near me and go and sit in it!
