Aside from the driver's seat, the front seat is the most utilized areas inside a vehicle since most individuals prefer to sit beside the driver especially if the vehicle is not driven by a chauffeur or when the passenger is with a family member or a friend. Since the front seat is commonly used, it is subjected to the usual wear and tear of vehicle riding that is why most front seats are made of durable materials such as leather, depending on the vehicle model. The materials used for the front seat of a vehicle are also used for the back seat and the driver's seat for uniformity and style.

Safety Features of a Car's Front Seat

The front seat is designed to be as comfortable for the vehicle's passenger as possible. To begin with, the seat at the front of a vehicle is made to support the lumbar region including the full length of the thigh. The lumbar region is the spine located between the diaphragm and the pelvic region. It supports most of a person's weight. The lumbar mechanism in a vehicle's front seat allows the passenger to regulate and shift the seat back to where he is most comfortable.

Other safety features that are included in a vehicle's front seat are child restraint system or a child safety seat. It comfortably restrains a child to prevent unnecessary movements that could destruct the driver's attention and lead to accidents. It also tucks the child safely through a safety harness, which is attached to the seat to protect the child during mishaps or road accidents. Another safety feature that is included in a vehicle's front seat is the anti-submarine seat or the kind of seat that holds the passenger to the seat and prevents him from moving forward in cases of collision. For vehicles that are designed to move fast and make sharp turns, a bucket seat is installed to hold the passenger in place during sharp and sudden turns.
