I'm late to the party, "length" part of the leg room is great. But if find the "width" to be restricting, the central console concaves into the driver space hitting/pushing my knee "inwards". I find it restricting, and annoying. If it weren't for that the seats/driving area would be top notch. Sounds weird, but I'm used to driving with my legs spread. Previous car was a jetta, although the space wasn't much larger, the center console was low enough so that my knee went over and yielded more space. With the Taos, the center console is high and inwards. My wife's car is a grand Cherokee, which adds about 8 - 10 inches in width space.

The headrest is also a bit too forward pointy, but that's how most modern cars are now a days (whiplash protection reg.), specially if they don't have angle tilt adjustability.

Am I the only one finding the driven cabin space a bit too narrow? ... Wonder if that's why VW didn't list the "hip" space on the spec sheet.

I’ve owned a 2022 SEL FWD for about 3 weeks and it bothers my upper thighs every time I drive more than 45 minutes or so.
When I was looking at purchasing one I drove a 4 motion SEL and it had different-feeling seats. They were “softer” in the metal framing of the bottom and had a bit more give without digging in.
I even said something to the salesperson about the seats being different when we drove the FWD model.
I’m also over 275 lbs and it may be great for the narrower people but I’ve already considered stopping at an upholstery shop for a quote on reworking the driver’s seat.

I have an SE and find the seats ok but not great. We're also have an Atlas SE which is very comfortable. The Taos lumbar is in a weird position for me and it feels like it is poking me so I can't use it. My wife has no problem so each person will have a different experience.

Damn I love the Taos SE seats. Best drivers seat I have ever sat in. Better than Subaru Crosstrek & Outback, BMW X1, Audi q5— for me though. Supportive, soft, but durable, and endlessly adjustable. To each their own!

Completed a 1800 mile trip earlier this month. Close to 12 hours seat-time each way. No stop until I was almost out of fuel at 6 hours. I found the seat comfortable. Incidentally, I’ve drive this route previously in different vehicles and never made it so far without having to gas up.
