Hi folks,

I hope you are all enjoying the summer weather. I have just had two glorious weeks at home in Sweden with all the family (except for one son who is at sea at the moment).

I left the Antara in Port and flew to Copenhagen where I hired a car. They gave me a Volvo V60 which I did about 1,000 km in. Now I know why I have an Antara!

I have had a number of Volvos in the past - from the old Amazon to an S80 and always thought their seating brilliant but no more. It was a real pain to sit in compared to the Antara.

When we unfortunately see so many complaints about the Antara in this forum, I am pleased to give some positive feedback. The Antara's seats are great and the driving position gets top marks too.

Cheers all!

Yes Spantara I agree with everything you've said about seats, I've just come back from a trip to London and in our old car which was a Zafira when we got to London from Devon I would have a job to walk as was in so much pain in back and legs. With the Antara no problem at all, I think its to do with the higher seat position.

The only issue with the driving of the Antara on long distance is the arm rest on the door, absolute killer after a while!!

But agreed it is a nice cruiser!

I too have to agree - I really like my Antara seats. I drove 200 miles to my son recently and was surprised at how comfortable it was. I usually have back problems travelling distances - but not this time

Of course, this is a totally subjective view but I have no problem with the door armrest. However, if the inside (right-hand on mine, left-hand on UK cars) were height adjustable it would be even better imho.

A very different beast and in different conditions but when I was in Africa and driving a Land-Rover Defender, I loved to have the window open and rest my arm on the window sill. When it got too dusty I had to close the window and then there was nowhere to rest my arm. Driving on fast European roads this is not really an option but the Antara ticks all the comfort boxes.
