its my point which you just explained that these controls need to be in the drivers grasp more than the passenger, rx's console has the ac control, the fan setting, the hazards and the radio tilted towards the driver, ofcourse no person racing in it would want to fiddle with these controls during a drag or a drift, would he? but still they are tilted, why? because whether its a sports car or a mid size sedan, safety and concentration over driving is being given much more importance in today's world.
and the point is?, you change automatic shifts manually when climbing difficult terrains or i think you just turn the overdrive off put it in L2 or 1 and take control, btw point out HOW would the shifts help in a H1, the AUTOMATIC gear lever is not tilted towards the driver, whats your point here?
if you're comparing the tilt angel of the civic and the truck whose picture you posted as a reference then trust me friend you have some serious issues and definitely need to see a good eye doctor.compare the tilt angles again, you'll know what i mean.
ill tell you, im 5 8-9", i dont drive with a much relaxed seat position, i have an indash dvd installed in my 8G, i drive wearing a seatbelt always, and it is a problem for me to use the mute button which is on the most extreme left corner of my dvd pannel, it would really help if the dash was tilted a few cm TOWARDS me, because im grabbed by the seatbelt.
and since civic is not meant to be a proper sports car, neither like a cowrolla, does it mean it is not ought to provide the driver with the slightest of cushion and safety enhancement, or are you suggestiong that safety is only meant to be in racing cars?
in the argument all you did was to prove my point right, trust me i know you're a cowrolla fan, i respect that, i wouldnt want to come up with replies to your vague comments where you call civic a luxury car, and compare it with a truck, c'mon for once you could also like something which is going to be an instant hit when it comes out, yeah?
