Depending on the trim level of your car, you may have a power front seat rather than a manual seat. This offers more customization in terms of seating position, as well as less effort required to adjust the seat. Here’s how to work it:

  • Locate the Oblong control on the side of the seat.

  • Lift the front to tilt the front of the seat up.

  • Lift the back to raise the back of the seat.

  • Slide it forward or back to move the seat forward or back.

  • Lift or lower the middle to raise or lower the entire seat.

  • Use the back recline control to adjust the seatback position (tilt it forward or backward as needed).

  • Press the Power Lumbar control to adjust the lumbar support in the back of the seat.
