2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI: Phoenix Road Trip Part 2
July 25, 2014
Driving the miles and miles of desert highway from southern California to Nissan's proving grounds near Phoenix, Arizona gave me much time to consider the front seats in the 2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI.
I like 'em. A lot. Seats are, of course, one of your more personal preferences. Meaning, just because they fit me doesn't mean they will suit you. But I found the driver seat had just the right level of firmness, and the seatback envelops me. So I feel like I'm sitting more in the seat than on it. I'm not sure how this would be for wider folks.
The suede inserts add to the comfort, especially for those of us who wear shorts until it gets below 35 degrees. Which it never does here in SoCal.
About the only thing I could ask for would be seat coolers, for those days when the car's thermometer says the outside temp is 110 degrees.
