Steering wheel adjustment mechanism

I am an arthritic driver who needs to find a small SUV (RAV 4, CRV or equivalent) that has something other than the hard-to-operate locking lever beneath the steering column to adjust the steering wheel. My husband is 6’3" and I’m 5’1" so frequent adjustment is required. Either a later model (2006+) or a new vehicle are fine.

Luxury brands usually offer packages that have electric adjustments and many even have systems that will commit your setting preferences to memory.

All you can do it look.
