Renault has been known for being one of the most innovative car brands when it comes to a vehicle’s interior function and the French car maker is continuing to uphold that distinction by coming out with a front passenger swivel seat for the Renault Clio.

As part of the brand’s Mobility for All campaign, the front passenger swivel seat is based on a relatively simple technology that involves a small lever located under the seat that allows it to turn up to 75 degrees to the right of the outward-facing side.

As the first car maker to offer this unique new technology in Europe, as Renault claims to be, the front passenger swivel seat will be available to all three-door and five-door variants of the Renault Clio Expression Clim and Dynamique Tom Tom that will be sold in other European countries like France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Germany, and Switzerland for an additional cost of just 1,600 euros ($2,150).

The original Chevy Malibu in the 70’s had swivel bucket seats! Mine were black and white herringbone! They were wonderful and everyone loved them.

Given the poor reliability record of Renault’s gadgets and widgets, I would try to avoid the seat in question.

Very nice option because I think its the comfort which gives the most important asset of a car. Secondly, is its engine.

I think so too, the swivel seats has no enough for the legs and knees to follow to the body when the door is close.

Lovely, but isn’t the space is a little bit small for the passenger’s legs to swivel also?

2 grand is kinda expensive for that kind of seat. But, considering the comfort and usefulness of the chair, I guess it’s worthwhile. Now, who would want to be driving then when they get to enjoy the swivel seats.
