TALL MEN… COMFORTABLE CARS, SMALL PROBLEMS, JUMBO SHRIMP…
So Tall Dude googled ” best cars for tall men” . After straightening my neck…I found a few things worth sharing:
US News and World Report publishes a fairly decent report.
And then there is a report by Autobytel. It sucks so Tall Dude didn’t give you the link.
Consumer Reports gives it shot. Tall Dude read it, had a beer, read it again, and didn’t know what to think. It likes going to the big box store that has product stacked from floor to ceiling, but in the end, you can’t find what you really need!
Its all about headroom, seat and thigh support, and having your legs drop from the seat at a right angle.
If you adjust the seat to it’s lowest position so that you have adequate headroom, you might feel like you are doing a leg lift. Your lower back will hurt!
If you raise the seat so that your legs drop to the floor without straining your back, you may not have enought headroom.
So what you want is this this-your head does not touch the ceiling of the car, your eyes have good visibility through the windshield so that you can see traffic lights
LEG DISTANCE , LEG DROP, AND LEG SUPPORT
Imagine you are sitting on the floor or lifting your legs up off the ground. In a short time, your back is going to hurt. So you might lower the seat to achieve adequate headroom and visibility, only to feel like you are almost sitting on the floor and lifting your legs. You need the seat to support your legs, and your legs need to drop at a right angle, Otherwise you are doing a leg lift in your car.
