Today's ... Rant? Hyundai Veloster B-pillar

Today's ... Rant? Hyundai Veloster B-pillar

So, being on the shorter side of life, this isn't something I've ever considered. And, I have to admit, it kind of blew my mind a little bit. But I picked a friend up for lunch yesterday, and he's on the taller, bigger side of life. Even before he got into the front passenger seat, he ducked in to move it all the way back. Then he bent over, put his butt in the seat and contorted his back and neck to get the rest of his body into the car. Huh.

Getting out of the car brought forth a similar bendy acrobatic act. When I laughed and remarked that this car just wasn't made for his (cough) generous frame, he said the problem was with the B-pillar. Or the third door. Pick one. He said that whenever you have to move the front seat behind the B-pillar, it's tough for someone who's (cough) tall, to get in and out of the car.

Huh.

So, you tell me, is this a problem or not?

  • On the other hand, you don't have the ginormous door on the right (and left) side of most coupes. And he could have gotten in the back seat, which you can't do in most coupes.

    On the other hand, both C&D and Motorweek said that the Veloster was lacking Velocity. And, usually, Motorweek likes everything.
