Top 8 Cars for Tall Body Types
People come in many different shapes and sizes, and luckily for us, so do cars. One car definitely does not fit all. Here’s some tips to make sure that your tall body type, matches up perfectly with the car of your dreams!
Scenario 1: You’re a tall person. You definitely want a car that has plenty of space. Check out the 2016 Jeep Wrangler. When’s the last time that you were comfortable in a convertible? Taking off the roof of the Wrangler will give you that sense of space you’ve been craving, plus the Wrangler is an SUV with plenty of room already. Take off the doors, and you’ve got the perfect car for tall folks.
Scenario 2: Scope out the 2016 Honda Accord if you’re not averse to driving a midsize sedan. The Accord has 39.1 inches of headroom. Leg room is good enough for anyone who really doesn’t want to have to fold themselves like an accordion to get behind the steering wheel. The fact that it’s affordable is icing on the cake.
Scenario 3: Say hello to the 2016 Kia Optima. For its size, it offers the most generous headroom of all midsize sedans, just a touch under 40 inches. That’s 2 inches taller than the Mercedes Benz S-Class sedan! Front seat passenger’s side has 45.5 inches of leg room so you can look good and stretch out with ease.
Scenario 4: Hello, 2016 Ford Flex! Say you’ve got a yen for an 8 seater full-size crossover car. You’ll be pleased to know that the front headroom is 41.8 inches. Are you thinking that things might get tighter in the second or third row? You’d be wrong: even the third row gives you 38.7 inches of headroom. Alright, we confess – there’s limited legroom in the third row. But up front? 40.8 inches. Put those kids in the back seat – it’s safer for them anyway!
Scenario 5: What’s that you say? You are tall but have tall kids as well? Let me suggest the 2015 GMC Terrain. This compact SUV has 41.2 inches of legroom in front, and 39.8 inches of headroom. Even better news is that there’s 39.9 inches of legroom in the second row. What other vehicle can sit two 6 feet 4 inch people one behind the other without a preliminary game of Twister?
Scenario 6: Are you going green, and thinking that a plug-in electric car might be too crowded for you? Take a look at the 2016 Tesla Model S. We’re talking 38.8 inches of headroom, and 42.7 inches for your legs. Second row does drop quite a bit – 35.3 inches of headroom. Seriously, don’t even think of trying to get into the folding third row of seating – that’s for children and pets only! It is also perfect for defensive driving!
Scenario 7: Looking for some luxury scrambled up with your headroom? The 2016 Cadillac XTS has a front headroom of 39 inches, which compares well to most SUVs, and 45.8 inches of legroom. Give thanks to its tall roof, and drive in style!
Scenario 8: You’ve heard the hype about the 2016 Ram 1500 Crew Cab having a gigantic interior? I’m happy to tell you that the hype is true! Combine 41 inches of legroom with 41 inches of front headroom, and you’ve also got some large doors that make it a breeze for tall folks to get in and out of the cabin.
There’s a few more cars that deserve a mention – the 2016 Hyundai Genesis and the 2016 Cadillac Escalade. Now who said there isn’t a lot of options for tall people? Get out there and do a few test drives, and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about!
