2011 Hyundai Sonata: The Seat's So High, Man

August 25, 2010

The Hyundai Sonata's driver seat is mounted too high -- I'm practically staring at the visor when behind the wheel. It's a little like the old Ford Taurus/Five Hundred, which had an elevated driving position intended to be SUV-like but ultimately was just suited for little old ladies who'd otherwise have to rely on the Yellow Pages. If our Sonata had a sunroof, I'd imagine my hair would be grazing headliner.

It's not the sleek roofline either, the seat's just too darn high. I would like to see Hyundai lower its bottom-most travel, and increase the upward movement for the little old ladies.
