For sure, because i think my BMW M3 seats are more comfortable than the RRS seats. But i don't think the RRS seats are anywhere near uncomfortable.i would characterize the seats as firm but not rock hard. I found them softer than BMW seats are typically.
Madam MDX is spot-on... you need to try the car on.

I'm done with errands so will comment more on seat comfort. Having had the fortune/misfortune of having to drive several loaners the last 2 months, I can attest to the importance of not just the comfort of the seat itself, but the ability to adjust the seat to fit your body and give you the best driving position and visibility while driving.
I'm not a tall or big person, so I look for seats that can be raised very high up to give me the best visibility out of the car. I also like to sit a bit more reclined than the average person and like the steering wheel low, so a telescoping and adjustable steering wheel with extra articulation and reach is important.
My worst loaner for seat adjustment and visibility was the Jaguar XF 2.0T. The seats themselves had enough padding, but the 6-way adjustable seats just did not have enough range of adjustment to give me any visibility over the hood and had my legs too close to the pedals in order to allow me to reach the steering wheel comfortably. No lumbar support at all. I had a 3-hour round trip last week, part of it in stop and go traffic, and it was very uncomfortable.
I can only comment on 2015 RR ATB seats and although it is a pretty big SUV, it does a great job of providing enough adjustments that a short/smaller person can sit comfortably and even be able to see over the hood. I wish we could specify the additonal seat choices that are available in the UK. One of the options was articulation of the top part of the seat back, which I think the LWB models might now get here in the US. The other thing I miss are headrests that can be tilted or be pulled forward so that you can sit with your head against it. Nice to have on a long drive when you want to take some pressure off your neck. My headrests are supposed to have that ... except if you have the RES ... I would have used the headrest more, but didn't know it was one or the other. Again I think the LWB has that, probably because the larger screens sit outside of the headrests. Hmm, maybe I should have gone for the LWB!
I would rather have a stiffer seat that can be adjusted to the right position, than a soft/plush seat that has you in the wrong driving position. Bottom line: get the seat and steering wheel that give you the most adjustment options.
when i sat in the car at the dealership i thought that the seats were a little stiff compared to my current ride cayenne 2012trez63Re: seat comfort
Yes, they're comfortable.
