Asked by Bill McMahon
YOU recently referred to the H (for hip) point being raised in cars for older drivers in response to the difficulty of entry and exit. What is this and which cars should I look at?
Answered by CarsGuide2 Nov 2007
BASICALLY, the H point is the spot where your hip is located when you are sitting in the driver's seat. It can be raised by lifting the base of the seat, the height of the floor or even the whole vehicle. So cars such as the Toyota Camry have a high seat position, but a Subaru Forester has a high H point because of gravel-road suspension settings. You really need to walk around a few showrooms to see the difference.
