As mentioned above, Mercedes offers a comfort package for vehicles that do not include massage seats as a standard option. The multi-contour seat package adjusts the seat with more or less air in the side reinforcements of the seat like a tailor-made suit. By adjusting the backrest reinforcements so that they are particularly firm, the lateral support for sporty driving maneuvers is improved. The inflatable chambers in turn create a massaging effect on the lower back.
Your back will enjoy the appreciation it deserves. From hot stone massage functions to air conditioning units, there's a lot to do underneath all that thin nappa leather. As you can see, there are 7 different Mercedes-Benz models that have the option of a massage function in the front seats. An added benefit of having an aftermarket seat massager in your car to reduce the stress of sitting in traffic or enduring a long trip, you can also use it in your home office or on your couch to give a pleasant end to your day, every day.
For example, cars such as the Lincoln MKX, Ford F-150 and Ford Explorer also have optional seat massages. The multi-contour seat package offers a massaging effect on the lumbar region through pulsating air chambers in the lumbar support. The multi-contour active front seats with 8 different massage functions and lumbar support, as well as support for the shoulders and sides, all three are adjustable. In addition, seat massagers can reduce stress and improve mood, especially during high-traffic situations.
While you can definitely find a seat massage function on cars such as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Lexus LS and Audi A8, you'll be surprised that you can also find them in more common cars. The stress of the day will go away as the car seat rollers work their magic on all the knots and aching muscles in your back, that is, unless you are in a Mercedes-Benz. The YouTube channel “What's Inside” dismantled the seat of a Mercedes S-Class to give us a fascinating insight into how these complex chairs work. A couple of worthy notes include that seat massagers improve circulation on longer trips, as poor circulation can lead to muscle fatigue, as well as neck and back pain.
In case you still want seat massagers for the charming Toyota Corolla Hatchback you just bought, you'll love the fact that you can find them as an aftermarket option. But in case you think that the aftermarket seat massager is not for you and you prefer to have a real car with that luxurious function, we recommend that you buy a used Mercedes-Benz S-Class. As always, automatic climate control is a savior, as you can simply “set it and forget it”, however, a supreme luxury is having front seats that massage you as you drive.
