GM Designs the 2012 Buick Verano's Seats for Ponytails

We all love a comfy seat either in front of the TV or in our cars. Automakers spend countless hours perfecting the seats in their models and in the case of GM, the automaker spent at least 1,000 hours developing the seats in the 2012 Buick Verano.

What did GM’s engineers do exactly for 1,000 hours? According to GM, the engineers worked hard to prevent “hot spots” from happening on long drives and to design the headrests in such a way to prevent them from messing up your hair. Yup the Verano’s seats will cuddle your bum and at the same time not mess up your ponytail.

“When we set out to design a comfortable interior for Verano our goal was for customers to feel like vacation begins as soon as they get in the car, and not when they reach their destination,” said Brian Schell, Verano program engineering manager. “By making comfort our first priority, we were able to create seats that will make customers feel more at ease and connected to the car for a more-satisfying ride experience.”

“Verano was held to the highest standards for comfort and interior refinement,” said Chuck Russell, Verano vehicle line director. “We’re confident that luxury car shoppers will be hard-pressed to find a more comfortable and inviting car at its price point on the market today.”

The 2012 Buick Verano will go on sale later this year with a starting price at $23,470.
