2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI: Superb Seats
February 19, 2015
Our 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI has good seats. Really good seats. Possibly you remember the wildly over-bolstered seats in our 2013 Ford Focus ST? They were polarizing. Some people loved the support they offered, but many, like me, thought it possible to offer similar support without such aggressive bolsters.
That's where the GTI's seats shine. They provide the necessary lateral support without such ridiculous bolsters. My preferred driving position in the Focus literally made it hard to squeeze between the steering wheel and the seatback side bolster when entering and exiting. In fact, I have a similar problem in our 2015 Ford Mustang GT. It's a Ford seat thing, I guess. Well, that and I like a fairly vertical seatback. Weird, I'll admit.
Not so in the GTI. Its seats let me have both my driving position and the lateral support I want.
