2016 Chevrolet Volt: Comfortable for Commuting
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on May 18, 2015
There are many things that make our2016 Chevrolet Volt a great commuter vehicle. Plenty of range, carpool stickers and up-to-date technology that keeps you connected while on the road.
But what about its seats? How do they stack up when you're sitting there staring at the backsides of a few thousand of your fellow commuters?
They are surprisingly comfortable. And I say "surprisingly" because they don't feel all that great when you first sit down in them. They're not covered in particularly nice material nor do they have noticeably firm bolstering.
But after numerous commutes of at least an hour or two, these seats held up well. The urge to fidget did not set in after 45 minutes and I don't remember having to ease the seat back to stretch my legs out as the miles wore on. In other words, I was comfortable enough to not notice them, which is about all I ask for from a commuter car.
