Power Long Rail and Stadium Swivel Seat: The combination of Magna’s power Long Rail technology and Stadium Swivel Seat provides ease of reconfigurability and flexibility for various occupant and cargo situations. The vehicle cabin can be reshaped to offer a more useable and collaborative interior for the autonomous vehicle, ride sharing and car sharing scenarios of the future.

IP Nesting: The passenger seat nests into the instrument panel by combining stadium cushion flip-up and long rails to provide cargo storage space for improved mobility.

Or the first and second row seat are both on long rails and nest together towards the front or rear of the vehicle creating an open area for cargo.

Under campfire mode, the first-row passenger seat swivels around to face an occupant in the second row. Or, in a 3-row vehicle, the second row seats swivel around to face occupants in the third row.
