Kirchheim/Teck, February 2010. Seat manufacturer Recaro enters new territory with the Recaro Cross Sportster CS. Its flat side bolsters allow easy entry and exit, without compromising on sporty side support. As a result, the seat is the perfect alternative to conventional standard seats in coupés or SUVs.
With its latest project Recaro is breaking new ground. Flat side bolsters combined with a long seat cushion make the Recaro Cross Sportster CS unique. It allows anyone to get into and out of their car with ease. The Recaro Cross Sportster CS also performs well on rough terrain and during fast cornering. Its prominent backrest side bolsters provide firm, secure support for the car’s occupants and give a comfortable, sporty ride.
The slim shape and sporty appearance of the Recaro Cross Sportster CS impressively transforms the interior of the car. A slender design of this kind is only possible with the use of plastics. This provides a clear indication of the direction in which the latest trend for thinner and lighter seats is going. The latest hybrid structure of the seat lowers the weight of the vehicle and,as a result, reduces fuel consumption. In addition, it makes more space available in the interior of the car for the passengers.
With its optional side airbag, it also offers higher levels of safety. The Recaro Cross Sportster CS (with or without side airbag) is available now with a range of different covers at Recaro specialist dealers.
The Recaro Cross Sportster CS makes use of the new hybrid production method for car seats. With this manufacturing process, Recaro has brought about a revolution in seat design by using plastics for load-bearing structures as well as in other areas. Conventional seats have heavy, bulky metal structures.
The new process allows for significant weight reductions and space savings, together with a wide variety of individual seat designs that have not been possible until now. As the pioneer and innovator in this area, Recaro is constantly investigating improvements to the production method which will allow it to use a broad spectrum of materials.
