SEAT Glossary

All the details.



Ergonomics studies the possibilities of and limits to work performance, and how to best adapt working conditions to the needs and comfort of the people in them.

In the automotive sector, ergonomics refers to the optimal adaptation of a vehicle to the people inside it. This minimises the strain placed on both driver and passengers. To do this, all possible body sizes, sitting and driving habits need to be taken into consideration.

For example, to ensure that the driver can fully devote their attention to traffic, all controls such as switches and levers must be easy to reach, illuminated in the dark and clearly arranged and distributed.

When it comes to SEAT models, all cars feature well-designed interiors with an eye for ergonomics to ensure safe and comfortable driving.
