A height-adjustable steering column ensures that drivers of different heights can find their own individually adapted and thus ideal posture and sitting position. This makes the work of steering comfortable, relaxed, and thus safe.
At the same time the best view of all instruments can be arranged. Even more individual adjustment is available with a height and reach-adjustable steering column (eg: in the SEAT Alhambra), where the distance of the steering wheel to the body can be adjusted individually.
The adjustment is made by pulling a lever and lifting and lowering or pulling and pushing the steering wheel.
