2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Long-Term Road Test

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Driver's Seating Position

October 11, 2013

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

I'm a big fan of our long-term 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe, but every time I take the wheel I'm surprised at how long it takes me to get truly comfortable in the driver's seat.

There's no shortage of adjustment options, mind you, with a standard tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and height-adjustable seat. But still, I find I'm either pressing the accelerator with my big toe, or sitting too close to the wheel.

Eventually, I settle into a happy medium somehow, but not without a long series of small adjustments.
