These would be my biggest complaints w/ ergonomics. Also did not realize it on my test drives. Oh well. My drives are not too long so the car is comfortable enough for what I use it for.The overly aggressive lumbar support, no thigh support (seat bottom is just too short) and no good way to rest the left arm while driving, are killing me. Too bad it took me several weeks to realize.
On the bright side, my wife uses the car 90% of the time and she finds the seating comfortable. She's 170cm, I am 178cm tall.
Describe how they're uncomfortable ... like the Brooks leather seat on your bicycle, it takes awhile for seat to conform to your shape ... or maybe it's your shape that conforms to the seatI recently purchased an new HRV with cloth seats and they are extremely uncomfortable. Have not yet been able to find any additional cushions or supports to help the issue. Starting to feel like it was a bad choice as I drive alot of miles. Test drive them and pay attention.
Hi - I just bought a 2016 HRV and my tailbone and lower back are killing me! The seats are so uncomfortable. I just went back to Honda to see if they could help me adjust the seat and they made it higher. Can't tell yet if it will work. I drive a ton of miles. Any suggestions or commiserations?I recently purchased an new HRV with cloth seats and they are extremely uncomfortable.

I have the same issue! Did you find any good solutions?I have had my HR-V for about a month now and apparently my test drive was too short. I find the seats really uncomfortable. First of all, I had to turn the headrests around. Second, I think the seats were made for someone that is maybe 5'5" tall. I am 6 foot. The top of the seat back comes too far forward right in the middle of my back causing me to slouch. If it had a really good lumbar support, that may have helped out. Also, the steering wheel blocks the speedometer when I adjust the wheel to where it is somewhat comfortable. If I scooch down in the seat, I can see the speedometer. That is part of why I think the seat was made for a shorter person. I am driving cross country in a month and I am dreading it bcause of this. I will try the towel in the lumbar region trick and see if that is helpful. Any other suggestions?
Other than that, I really like this little car.
