How does the handling of the Bolt compare to the FFE? Is it rougher on the road or what?
How did the front seats end up on your Bolt? Has that issue been improved since the models from earlier in the year?
Only the driver window is both auto up and down. The others are auto down only. A minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things, but we used the windows a lot so it was nice to have on the Focus.
As far as the handling, the Bolt is definitely not as athletic. It plows a noticeable bit more going into corners and the steering feel and feedback is less communicative. The rear suspension is also noticeably less able to provide grip in really fast transitions compared with the setup of the Focus. However, the shorter wheelbase means it rotates readily once you've committed to a line through the corner and the ability to balance the car through a corner using just the throttle is really fun. Ride is not significantly different thanks to the battery, though the springs on the Bolt are definitely stiffer. That is mostly felt on surfaces with really broken paving.
As for the seats, they are not uncomfortable for me, though I can see why some people might find them a bit snug. The seats in the Focus were better, but the ones in the Bolt work plenty well. I've done a two-hour stint behind the wheel without issue. As far as I know, Chevy has no plans to modify the seats at the moment.
