Sat in my first Bolt today, and while I had almost zero expectations of the seats from reading reviews, for the short time I sat in it I thought it was fine. I think I felt what others feel is the pinching part but it didn't bother this 250lb 6'2 person, maybe my larger butt spanned the bad part??
Overall I was pretty impressed with the passenger room, decent head room and adequate rear seat room even with the front seat almost all the way back. Like the Volt(which I also sat in and like 3 years ago HATED!! zero head room, near zero rear seat room, - zero rear seat room and the '17 was no different) the Bolt seats went back even further than I like. 99% of the cars I drive I move the drivers seat back as far as it goes, doing this with either the Bolt or Volt resulted in me barely able to reach the pedals, must be designed for someone with a 38" inseam and no one in the back seat
I agree with others who feel the Bolt interior is on the cheapish side, plastic wise, but it was certainly adequate, not as nice as the Leaf though.
Didn't care that to get a heated rear seats one had to jump to the top trim and therefore be forced to get leather. I for one get lots of use with the rear seat heaters on my Leaf.
While the range would be nice and basically eliminate range anxiety in town, we still need a car we could drive several times/year for 800-1500 miles a crack and the Bolt still wouldn't help with that. Now if I didn't have my Leafs I'd seriously consider one but with 2 Leafs that can do between 60 and 80 miles, I'm probably just fine for now. Now if the Bolt had been a larger vehicle, both more cargo and passenger room(even if half the range) it may have been my ideal vehicle, until then I'm going to stick with the Leaf for town and maybe get something like the Prius Prime to replace our current 10 year old regular Prius for our 50+ MPG road trips.
corrected info about heated rear seats and heated steering wheel.
