^^This..and one size doesn't fit all true that but why do ppl particularly owners almost always say "Infinity"..fk sake!(no)Don't think that's the issue. My Gen 1 seats have noticeably more aggressive bolstering, but I found the 2019 GT far more uncomfortable.
Im 60, 290 lb, and the seat suits me just fine. Its not a question of body type.
So if it's not size, what is it?! (wow)I find the seats in our CX-5 very comfortable and so does my wife. We are very different physically. I'm 6'4" and my wife is 5'2". The seats in the Sig are 10x more comfortable than our old CR-V (to us).
I only wanted the turbo and the HUD.The manual cloth seats are super comfortable. I like them as much as the leather seats and more than the leatherette seats, couldn't justify the extra cost of the higher trims.
I still can't understand why Mazda don't make the cloth seats standard over all the trim levels and then charge extra for leather for those who really want it. (In all markets, not just the U.S.) It would bring the base cost cost down for each trim level, so a win,win for everybody surely? Mazda would probably sell more vehicles and the customer would pay less. Or is this all too logical? By the way from my test drives and experience of my 2013, 2016 and 2018 CX5 the cloth seats have always been more comfortable as the leather seats are too hard and gave me backache even on the test drive. (6 feet 2 and 220 pounds).I like everything in my GT-R except I would have preferred a nice cloth interior vs. leather.
What you described for the Sport is the exact problem I had in the 2019 GT. The seat was bothering my left thigh quite a bit. I was trying to shift constantly and just wasn't having a good time.I appreciate the seat discussion, I'm thinking of buying one and my budget was Sport-like so when I tried the cheapest model's seats recently on the lot, and turned to get out I was disappointed by feeling in my left thigh the underpinnings of the seat thru a very modest upholstery. That is I felt a steel bar right thru the seat, felt very cheap and portended a big hole there in a few years. Then I tried a GT and the seats were substantially firmer/harder, which I liked. Still haven't tried all the variations but initially not too surprising: cheap car, cheap seats!
Cloth > Leather every time for me too. 6 1/2 years no stains on my cloth seats.I like everything in my GT-R except I would have preferred a nice cloth interior vs. leather.
