EXPERT

If flexibility is top of your list, look no further! The modular design of the RECARO Expert adapts to different body sizes. It’s available with S and M seat cushions that vary in the length of the seat surface and the height and contours of the side bolsters. Shorter drivers will find that the short seat cushion and flat side bolsters make getting in and out a breeze (S version). Adjustable backrest side bolsters come as standard, rounding off the perfect body support. Feel your driving performance soar!

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Where can I try sitting in a RECARO seat?

    You can try out RECARO seats in our retail store in Kirchheim/Teck, or at any authorized RECARO dealer or service partner. Prior to visiting an authorized RECARO dealer or service partner, you should contact them to inquire whether they have the seat that interests you on hand for testing. You can find an authorized RECARO dealer or service partner in your area by visiting the Service page of the RECARO website.

    Q: I have back problems. Which RECARO seat do you recommend?

    All RECARO seats are ergonomic seats, suited for people with back problems. To find the perfect seat, we generally recommend that you try our range of seats at one of our RECARO dealers or service partners before purchasing.

    Q: Where can I find an ABE for RECARO seat type XY?

    All the latest versions of ABEs for RECARO seats can be found here.

    Q: Is a "TÜV" approval necessary when installing a RECARO seat?

    Installation of a RECARO seat does always have to be confirmed by a TÜV-member, according to German StVZO, § 19. This has to be confirmed by a separate document, which has to be carried in the car like the ABE. TÜV-registration is mandatory in case of imperative changes (i.e. modifications for disabled persons).

    Q: Is it possible to upgrade the car XY with a RECARO seat?

    RECARO offers seats for a wide range of cars. To find out which RECARO seat fits into your car, please check our baseframe list on the RECARO homepage under downloads.

    Q: Are RECARO seats height-adjustable?

    Yes, but not all of the seats. The RECARO Ergomed ES and RECARO Style Topline XL are height-adjustable.

  • RECARO Seating Training
    Push your bottom as near as possible to the backrest. Adjust the distance from the seat to the pedals so that your knee is slightly bent when the pedals are fully depressed.
    Rest your shoulders as near as possible to the backrest. Set the backrest tilt so that the steering wheel is easy to reach with slightly bent elbows and your shoulders stay in contact when turning the wheel.
    Set the seat height as high as possible for an unobstructed view of all sides and all the instrument panel displays.
    Set the seat cushion tilt so that it is easy to fully depress the pedals. Your thighs should rest gently on the seat cushion without exerting pressure on it. Check the backrest tilt before starting the engine.
    Adjust the extendable seat cushion so that your thighs rest on it to just above the knee. The rule of thumb is two to three fingers’ clearance between the seat edge and the hollow of the knee.
    The lumbar support has been adjusted correctly when it supports the natural curve of your lumbar spine.
    The seat’s side bolsters should fit snugly enough to support your upper body at the side without restricting it.
    If possible, adjust the upper edge of the headrest to the same height as the top of your head. Tilt: The distance to your head should be approx. 2 cm.
