2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk: Plenty of Room for Tall Drivers
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on September 1, 2015
Are the seats in our 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk any better because they have cool stitching on them? Certainly not. Thankfully, they're pretty good anyway.
Eight-way adjustability helps, yet these seats also have firm cushions and an excellent shape. I've put in some decent time behind the wheel and have yet to get restless legs or a numb backside. There's also plenty of adjustability for my 6'2" frame.
This shouldn't be an issue, but other editors have noted a distinct lack of legroom in one of the Renegade's main competitors, the Honda HR-V. Combined with the tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, the Renegade's power driver's seat (an option on all but the base Sport) makes it easy to find a comfortable driving position. I still don't love the view over the long hood, but the right driving position makes up for it.
