Recommend a car with a good seat?

I'll be in the market soon for a new car.  And now that I know about the Gokhale Method, I've noticed I'm not happy with too many car seats I ever sit in.  Mostly I hate the way the seat part cuts into the back of my calves when I sit the correct way.  Does anyone know of certain makes and/or models that have decent seats that aren't so doggone deep?

Thanks!

Greetings and thank you for your question regarding car seats.  Esther wrote a lovely Blog post that should go into detail regarding the reasons and types of car seats.  You can find it here:

In general, you want a seat that is L shaped and not bucket like.  This way you can get your behind behind you.  Also a back that is relatively straight and not winged, so that your shoulders can be rolled back.

Avoid lumbar support pillows or adjusters that push into the lumbar.  BMW and Volvo add this feature.  This is a good example of a Fiat 500 seat that meets many requirements.  Good luck!
