Best Cars for Tall People

Driver comfort is among the most important features any car can offer. It contributes to driver concentration while reducing fatigue, which ultimately means comfort plays a role in vehicle safety. But for tall drivers, finding a comfortable car can be challenging. Sufficient headroom and legroom are the starting point, but a roomy interior space isn’t the only consideration. The range of front seat and steering wheel adjustments also plays a role in accommodating a variety of driver heights. Thankfully, modern vehicle design has taken these factors into consideration, with most new cars offering plenty of room for 6-foot-plus drivers and front passengers, even in today’s smallest cars and compact SUVs. Of course larger pickup trucks and SUVs offer the most spacious interiors, with models like the Chevy Suburban and Ford Expedition providing enough space for tall drivers in both the front and rear seats. Rather than simply ranking models based on the highest inches of headroom and legroom, iSeeCars has studied how much front headroom a car offers and combined that with measurements of torso length for different heights. Using these figures, and allowing for a variation in how much a given person’s torso represents their total height, iSeeCars confirmed the maximum height of taller drivers to still fit in a given model. Below you’ll find vehicles ranked by the tallest driver height they can accommodate in 44 categories. We also list the front headroom and front legroom for each model, along with pricing, fuel economy, and cargo capacity figures. We even identify the trim levels that offer the greatest headroom and legroom, and the standard features that contribute to driver comfort, such as driver seat height adjustments and a telescoping steering wheel. Taller people shopping for their next car can use these rankings as a starting point, but every driver (of every height) should visit a dealership and test drive a specific vehicle before buying. Understanding how many inches of legroom or headroom a car offers is helpful, but no amount of data crunching can take factors like driving position or driver’s seat controls and adjustments into account. Only an in-person driving experience, including exposure to touchscreen controls, the infotainment interface, and second-row and third-row passenger space (for family shoppers), can confirm a specific vehicle’s suitability for a specific buyer’s needs.
