Unlike the driver-only memory seat optional in the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4, the I-Pace offers an optional driver and passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.
