Seats: Leading-edge design and superb comfort made possible by our Foam In Place Method

Seats made with our Foam In Place Method deliver a superior sense of fit and support. First appearing in the May 2013 Lexus IS F-Sport, the seats have since been used in a number of Lexus models, including as sports seats in the new LC*1. Our genuine leather seats*2 are constructed with a single piece from the main part of the seat back to the shoulders, and has a layered construction that envelops the occupant’s back. The sense of fit and advanced design are a perfect match for a coupe that is the symbol of Lexus’s next generation of models. In addition to our total commitment to ride comfort, we pay minute attention to the form and stitch lines to produce seats with beautiful, flowing curves.
