Then I guess I drive a car with a 12-way driver's seat:
3. Forward seat cushion up
4. Forward seat cushion down
5. Rear seat cushion up
6. Rear seat cushion down
7. Seatback back
8. Seatback forward
9. Lumbar in
10. Lumbar out
11. Headrest up
12. Headrest down
We'd best not pass this along to the Hyundai marketeers, though, or else they'll be talking about the 10-way seats in the Elantra Touring.

I don't think that the lumbar and headrest adjustment are counted in the total number. My 2004 GT has 8 adjustment but also lumbar and of course headrest adjustment. I also read that the touring will have shiftronic. Great.

They generally don't count headrests and lumbar except in some cars that have power headrests.
Power 6-way power seat is forward, back, tilt up, tilt down, straight up, straight down.
8 way power is the previous six ways plus the backrest recline and unrecline (a 6-way power seat has manual adjustment for the recline and 8-way has power recline).
Each way you can move the seat is a "way."

"Way" too confusing.

I have a correction for the first 6 ways of a power seat.
1. Full seat forward along track
2. Full seat back along track
3. Front of seat bottom up
4. Front of seat bottom down.
5. Rear of seat bottom up.
6. Rear of seat bottom down.
8-way power seats add:
7. Backrest recline back.
8. Backrest return towards upright position.
10-way power seats add headrest up and headrest down control.
It is basically the amount of directions you can push the power adjust buttons.
Count the ways

So my '04 Elantra has a 10-way driver's seat. Cool. But Hyundai only claims 8. Guess they are being modest. Bet that Genesis will have a 26-way seat or something like that.

Yeah , I heard about the Elantra Hatchback due out in March
Only the wagon will be sold in US, we do not get the hatchback.
