      Increasing Front Seat Travel in Wagon R

      I am 6.1 feet tall and find existing front seat travel inadequate, say by an inch. Can anybody please provide a solution on how to increase it?

      Why do you think so? Do A Star rails have longer travel?

      Increasing Front Seat Travel in Wagon R [Current Version]



      I am 6' 1" tall and find existing front seat travel inadequate, say by an inch. Can anybody please provide a solution on

      how to increase it? Also, can I replace it with seat rails of any other car [which might be most likely another Maruti Suzuki].

      I have been to an authorized Maruti Suzuki dealer in the vicinity, but they reacted [] as if I was inquiring about an organ

      transplant.


      Please help!!!

      Have you tried getting bucket seats? this way you will be a little bit pushed back while driving, but you have to see this in-person and experience it with an existing car, then only go for it, (they are expensive).

      I am 6'2", and have WagonR Vxi, i have almost no prob with driving seat no even fully pushed back. Would you consider your sitting posture once??? if you are almost leaning on the stearing wheel, its difficult for tall guy, but a laid-back (its an easy to drive car) posture with your derrier pushed to the back of seat rest will work.

      (just my two cents)

      I have sold my Wagon R but, I want to say that it is because of my disproportionately long legs (as compared to my body above my waist) that cause a problem for me. You would be surprised to know that Maruti Suzuki seems to have listened to my request [;-) just joking] as Alto 800 gets a considerable amount of front seat travel, for its smaller size. No, I am not comparing Alto 800 to Wagon R but, it is astonishing if Alto 800 gets so much aft & fore travel for front seats then, why don't you get it on 'R'? Anyways, that is a thing of the past. I am now looking at Maruti Ertiga or Chevrolet Enjoy (as MPV, for me, seems to be the better 'Body Style' compared to the Tall Boys, although Tall Boys are still better compared to traditional Hatchbacks). Also, Maruti Suzuki seems to be catching up with some customer feedback. Anyways, thanks for concern, my Bro...
