Steering wheel adjustment
First of all, one needs to ensure a comfortable reach. Sit in the driver’s seat with your back against the seatback and your feet on the pedals. Loosen the steering wheel by pulling the lever located under the steering column. Adjust the height and make sure that your hands should comfortably grip the wheel with a slight bend in your elbows.

Tilt the steering wheel forward or backward to achieve a comfortable angle that doesn’t obstruct your view of the instrument panel or road ahead. The top of the steering wheel should ideally be no higher than your shoulders to avoid obstructing your view of the road and instruments.
Now, coming to the seat adjustment, Adjust the seat’s position to ensure you can fully depress the pedals without stretching your legs too far or feeling cramped. Maintain a slight bend in your knees when fully depressing the pedals.
For the height adjustment part, raise or lower the seat until you have a clear view of the road and surroundings. Your head should be positioned comfortably between the headrest and the ceiling. Position the headrest at the back of your head to provide support and minimize the risk of whiplash in case of an accident.
Sit upright with your back against the seatback to maintain good posture. This helps reduce fatigue during extended drives. Once you are done with the adjustments, take a short drive to assess comfort and make further changes if necessary.
