You can easily be comfortable in the driver’s seat because it was invented with high-seat. However, it was short with lower-back support, making it hard for tall people to get comfortable. There are lot of spaces in the front space, but it was hard for long-leg people to sit if they bring along passengers. You will wish that it has more spaces. It doesn’t give you any difficulties to sit in the rear space, however, you might find it uncomfortable if you use a three-door version, where you need to flip the front seat and go through a cramped space to get to the rear space. The boot was deep and squared, giving you more spaces to store many things in them, though you might struggle a little bit because of its high load lip.
- Volkswagen Polo
The latest version of Volkswagen Polo is similar to the previous Polo, where it was the smaller version of Volkswagen Golf but still manages to keep a good quality as Volkswagen Golf. It was available with 1.0, 1.2, 1.4 and 1.8 litres, but the 1.4 diesel is suitable for those who prefer economic car. This car was invented with high-speeds, which makes you more comfortable and stable and comes with seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic gearbox. However, this Polo might give you a hard time with its lack of accessibility for the seat and its steering might be hard to handle because of its slow response. However, it was decent enough to drive through your typical city. The adjustable driver’s seat and steering gives the driver a comfortable ride. The front seat was a bit small, but enough to occupied two adults, but it comes together with more elbow space. For the rear seat, it has enough space for three adults, complete with three headrests. However, the middle passenger had to endure the hard seat in the middle, the cup holder where you have to restrain your foot a bit and the raised floor. As for the boots, it was quite shallow and narrow, but big enough for your daily activities.
- Dacia Sandero
For the performance, you might not set your expectation too high because it was quite uncomfortable to drive because of its lack of throttle response of the 1.2. The steering is quite numb and inconsistent too. It has poor adjustment for the seat and wheel.

Don’t get this car if you wish to drive with your own body adjustment. As for the front space, it has an enough space for two adults, that comes together with a space between the front seats to put your belongings, not too big, keys, wallet and mobile phones are enough.

You can adjust its steering wheel, in or out and up or down, also, the driver’s seat are adjustable so that you can get the most comfortable position to drive. Provided that it was a small car, you will find it was uncomfortable about your leg space, though you cannot denied that you can fit in there. The roof makes it hard for tall people to get comfortable, but the shoulder and elbow space won’t be a problem. For the rear seat, you would face the same situation as the front seat. The boots can store up to 300 litres, make it easy for you to store weekly groceries and shopping, but the extended floor (which can be achieved by flipping the rear seat) makes it awkward to store a big and heavy items.
