2015 Volvo S60: Seats Feel Comfortable to Me
July 17, 2015
Why have the seats in our 2015 Volvo S60 received such mixed reviews? I have no idea. After driving the S60 again last night, I found no problems with the comfort of the driver's seat.
They have plenty of adjustments to fit my 6-foot 2-inch frame comfortably and the bolsters aren't overly intrusive. There's been considerable talk about the height of the seat, but that didn't bother me either. Throughout a two-hour slog through afternoon traffic, I never felt the need to shift around to remain comfortable, which is rare.
Then there are the headrests.
Some people on staff have complained that you can't escape their reach, and that no matter what you do, the headrest pushes on the back of your head. Those people must have some odd driving positions because when I'm driving the headrest is several inches from the back of my head.
I tried to get in a position where the headrest felt intrusive. I couldn't find one.
