What about massage seats in luxury cars?

Luxury vehicles have to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to delivering the industry’s top features – everything from in-vehicle refrigeration to infotainment and sound systems. But when it comes to one of the most luxurious features of all – high-quality massage seats – some brands are leading the pack.

In fact, these automakers are offering massages so relaxing that you’d have to visit a real-life massage therapist to beat this kind of bodywork.

We took a look at some of the top ranked luxury car massage seats. So settle in, turn on some relaxing music, and prepare to let go of all your cares.

But wait, you might be asking why you need massage seats in your luxury car.

First of all, luxury car shoppers are always looking for that perfect car with the perfect amenities, including massage features. 

Perhaps you crave the perfect kneading and relaxing circular seat massage during that long trip up the coast. Or you just want to unwind after a long hard day at work. With added climate control or plenty of heat for those sore muscles. 

Even passengers can enjoy a nice massage in many cases.

That’s because most luxury automakers offer massage seats on higher level trims.

Kelley Blue Book recently cited the latest AAA Foundation’s New American Driving Survey. It found that drivers spend nearly 60 minutes a day in their cars, making 2.5 trips that spread out over at least 30 miles.

“Those trip times and miles will only increase as people begin driving more since COVID restrictions lift. So it’s no wonder that carmakers are looking for ways to keep drivers more comfortable while on the road. Heated seats help you stop shivering on a cold morning commute or warm up your muscles after a long day on the slopes. On hot summer days, ventilated seats gently fan cool air to help lower your body temperature. Then some seats adjust 8-, 10-, 12-, or even 16-or-more-ways,” according to the article on the Kelley Blue Book website.

The website noted that options include upper rolling, lower rolling, and air pockets in the seat that inflate and deflate to create the massage. 

“You can adjust the type of massage from one of the five options in the F-150 Limited. You can also hit a button on the side of your seat for the menu to pop up on the infotainment screen.”

Rolls-Royce has been in the game the longest with seats that adjust to every imaginable seating position and employ both mechanical rollers and inflating air cushions to massage your back in a variety of delightful ways, the respected website noted.

Here are some 2023 models available with massaging seats:

  • The Rolls-Royce Ghost is considered one of the most luxurious vehicles in the world. And its massage seats are one of the many reasons for that designation. For 2023, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is generous with its seats’ kneading power and will relax all four passengers if that’s what they want. According to Motor Biscuit: “The executive seat is the best-equipped massage, however, as the up/down waves that go from the top to the bottom of the occupant’s back are complemented by a shoulder-to-lumbar massage given by a separate set of air cushions.” The executive seat is, of course, the best-equipped massage, giving you up and waves that go from the top to the bottom of your back. That’s complemented by a shoulder-to-lumbar massage given by a separate set of air cushions. And if you’re being driven by a chauffeur, he or she is sure to thank you for the great massage when you come out of your special event!
