Noticed that the golf and leon have weird sitting positions. The steering wheel feels off centered. Can the drivers of these makes confirm. Of is it just me?

Also noticed that the leg room on the passenger side feels bigger then the driver's side. Weird.

Maybe it's because of my height? 179cm?

Any other makes have this issue?

Surprising! I would have thought a bigger car would not have this issue. Lazy engineering?

A lot of German cars are designed for the driver to adapt to the car's design, not built around the driver. Been like for a long while.

Mini R56 is essentially designed as LHD from ground up.

 

Bonnet is on the left rather than right.

 

But Steering wheel and seat is aligned.

It's for driver who have one arm longer than the other.

I like offset pedals as one of my leg is longer than the other 2.

The camry wheel also looks slightly offset in that picture above. I've never noticed if my car had an offset steering wheel, but my pedals are offset to the right.


A line of paint on a road holds more authority than I ever will.

I thought only Italians like to have steering wheel offset cos they are not German-precise!

 

I am sure teh Germans still practice precision engineering. I am sure all the Golfs have steering wheels offset by precisely 2.687cm.
