TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2013 BMW 1-Series

2013 BMW 1-Series Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearComment
2013 You simply can't find a much better driver seat for a combination of long-distance comfort and support during aggressive cornering than the one in the BMW 135is. The seat feels firm and substantial, but with enough padding that church pew metaphors will remain far from your mind. The side bolsters are power-adjustable, so they can be snug when you want them to be snug, but not otherwise. Neither of the other cars has adjustable bolsters, and the Z's are too widely spaced for my average build. The BMW's seats also felt the most comfortable to me. see full BMW 1-Series review
