anything landrover certainly used to be - as they expected you to be wearing wellies!

Thanks for all your replies I have managed to get a much more comfortable position as a result. I have moved my seat up & forward and lowered my steering wheel to keep my hands at 3-9 & bellow my hart. Sadly Bavaria’s finest engineers don’t appear to have accounted for my body shape as my head now rubs the celling and I can’t see the top of the speedo. A short term fix is to remove the grab handle to get more head space but I suspect the long term fix is a new car. I recently drove a Nissan Rouge in the US (X-trail in the UK) which was quite comfy and a Hyundai Tucson which was not to bad. Any other suggestions would be great fully received. A couple of car makes that have been comfortable in the past are Saab and Peugeot. With Ford and VW group being the least.
