Any Petite MB R Class Drivers?
My husband and I are very interested in the R class as it fulfills most of our needs in a car. Unfortunately, when I sat in the driver's seat, I felt tiny! I'm only 5 feet tall. Although I adjusted the seat to it's highest setting and lowered the steering wheel, my head was mere inches from the ceiling (because I have to sit so close to the steering wheel) and I could not lower the sun visor without knocking myself on the head. Also, I still felt like I was sitting pretty low. I think the top of the dashboard lined up with my mouth.
I plan on going back and messing around with the driver's seat again. I really like this car except for the darn driver's seat!
I was hoping to get other petite driver's opinions on this, especially from those who may drive an R class.
