As the largest passenger car segment, full-size sedans should have plenty of room for you to stretch out in. Here we have a list of the interior dimensions of 2016 full-size sedans for tall drivers to use when shopping.
If you’re moving up in the world, the small/entry-level luxury car might be an option for you. While these may be the “small” luxury cars, that doesn’t mean that none of them will fit a tall driver.
Volkswagen is taking a step onto Subaru’s turf with the launch of the 2017 VW Golf Alltrack, and the hype is on. So I thought I’d line the numbers up next to one another and see how this new vehicle compares the vehicle it’s priced to compete with – the Subaru Outback.
For tall drivers, the mid-size sedan category offers vehicles that offer a comfortable fit while allowing you to avoid the bigger price tag of a full-size sedan. I’ve presented the interior dimensions of 2016’s mid-size sedans below.
When you’re shopping for a vehicle, there are two ways to size up the contenders.
The first way is to compare the interior dimensions. Numbers don’t tell the whole story, but comparing them will help you to prioritize your test driving. It might also open your eyes to some models that you hadn’t considered beforehand.
Environmentally conscious tall folks – this one’s for you. Before I read Zach Shahan’s article about the best electric cars available, I didn’t know that there were quite so many electric vehicles available.
To provide a thorough overview of electric cars, I used Zach’s Evobsession post, 10 Best Electric Cars.
If you’re a fan of hybrid and electric vehicles, I would add this blog to your regular reading list. For now, here are the interior dimensions so that you can work on prioritizing your test drive list.
So you’ve decided to go all out. It seems to me like the full-size SUV is the vehicle that your relatives are always telling you that you should buy.
Nonetheless, full-size SUVs offer a ton of space. If you want a large family wagon, the full-size SUV may be the option for you.
There aren’t too many competitors in this field. You can expect a new addition, the Nissan Armada, in late 2016.
Small SUVs might seem little else than a compact sedan with a fifth door. Full-size SUVs can be more car than your really need. Midsize SUVs are right in the middle, giving you both a decent amount of cargo space and family space.
If you’re a tall driver and interested in the midsize SUV segment, these interior dimensions might help you put together a more informed shopping list.
I have to make a confession – I’ve never been a fan of the small SUV or the crossover. To me, small SUVS seem like slightly-elevated mid-sized sedans with a fifth door.
Judging by what I see driving around the Detroit area, the small SUV is a popular choice. So if you’re a big or tall driver and interested in one of these vehicles, use the interior measurements below to help you prioritize your test-drive list.
For many people, Detroit’s NAIAS is an opportunity to check out nice rides or shop for their next vehicle. Not so, for me. I’m a big man on a big mission, and once again I suffered cramped legs, dinged kneecaps, and bashed heads all in the name of giving other tall people an idea of what vehicle might make sense for them.
I didn’t get to sit in every vehicle at the show. The makes that were most neglected were luxury cars. With what time I had I wanted to get to the vehicles with prices that I and the average tall person would see as more reasonable. But hey, if Mercedes Benz wants me to take one of their cars home for some testing, I’m available.
The vehicles listed below are ones that I sat in and felt comfortable, along with a few that I didn’t feel very comfortable in. I was paying attention to leg room, head room, and space around the pedals. My objective here is to give you test-drive ideas. The driving experience, especially long term, can’t be totally predicted just by sitting in a car. But sitting in a vehicle can help me come up with a few that you could try.
I also threw in some examples of those that really didn’t work at the end of the post.
