^^ this.

the seats are pretty comfortable for me. I'm 5'7" 165. It took me a couple days to find a good position, but my driving position is all track based. Upright, elbows at a 90* angle, but I'll move it back a notch if I'm feeling lazy. The seats aren't nearly as comfortable as my '90 Supra, power side and lumbar support, but it's nice enough for me.

I agree however I do wish the elec seat was 8 way instead of 6 way. Minimal xtra cost for ford and way better

^^This. As a 9-time back surgery patient, seats are the primary consideration for any car for me. My focus is comfortable with the seats I have, but the ability to adjust tilt would make it even better, I think. I'm not exactly complaining, it is an economy car, after all, but perhaps as an extra-cost option, it might be good.
