Driver Seat Leg Room in 2421MSF

hope Josh reads these messages!

Need help on getting the most leg room possible for driving a 2018 Forester 2421

The swivel seats are very "Crammy" for a person who is 6' tall - they are useless for someone who is 6'7"

do the power seats or the standard seats give any more legroom than the swivels seats?
BTW - when the swivel seat is moved back to the "swivel" position it is at about the right distance to be comfortable to drive, except it also moves way off to the side of the steering wheel when it does.

I can say that the power seat in my forester 3011ds did give us more room than the swivel seat

The drivers power seat base we had in GTS2800, on a Ford E-450 chassis, did have more leg room than the passenger side swivel seat. Plus the optional power seat base adjusts for height as well as forward and back.

It is better to have too much truck than to have too much trailer.

I'm back in the forum!

The Power Seat gives significantly more room for the driver than the Swivel Seats!
