First Rivian R1S Reviews: A Great Vehicle For Family Road Trips
Tech vloggers drove an R1S from LA to Yosemite with their parents and were amazed by the electric SUV’s practicality and versatility.
Speaking of the seating arrangement, the practicality of the R1S is probably what impressed these reviewers the most. They took their parents from Los Angeles on a trip to Yosemite National Park in the Rivian, taking full advantage of the vehicle’s massive cargo area when the third-row seats are folded. They also discovered that when you need the third row, there’s plenty of space there for adult passengers; more than expected, actually.
No storage space was left untested, including the roomy frunk, the compartment hidden underneath the trunk floor, and the many storage places scattered around the cabin. Suffice to say the R1S proved more than enough for four adults who didn’t pack light—quite the contrary.
The videos also showcase most of the Rivian R1S SUV’s cool features, such as the adjustable ride eight, two-piece rear hatch, panoramic glass roof, as well as gimmicks like the air compressor, detachable speaker, and flashlight integrated into the driver’s door.
