2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI: Would Prefer a Seat Bottom Tilt Function

January 23, 2014

2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI

Overall, our 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI is well suited for long-distance drives. But there's one thing missing that I think would help improve driver comfort even more: an eight-way power driver seat. As it is, the Passat SEL has just six-way power (minus lumbar) and lacks a seat bottom tilt.

Each time I get into our Passat, I notice how the seat bottom feels a little too flat for my tastes. Ideally, I'd want to be able to tilt the forward edge of the seat bottom up a little to better support my thighs.

I always get used to the driver seat eventually, so it's far from a grave issue. But if you're shopping for a Passat and take a test drive, make sure to see if you can get the driver seat truly set to your tastes.
