Tall Cars UK..... Tall Friendly Cars
4x4, Small,Estates and Family cars
Below are what some of our Tall Persons Club members say when asked what is a good tall persons car. We of course would suggest a test sitting first as no matter our height some us have longer legs or bodys etc.
"VW TOURAN. There are four in our family all over 6ft, comfortable in the back and front. Recommended"
"Skoda Superb Estate. Caters for my 38" legs in front and back and fits the dogs in the boot! It's like a comfy stretch van!"
"Best car I had for two rows of seats was a an Audi Q7 which fitted me at 6ft 8 and a 6ft plus adult behind me...but it is a big car. I did look at a Skoda Superb which was huge value and again sat four tall adults comfortably."
"I drive a Hyundai i800 I'm 6'7" (and not a slim build) with 6 kids(18-2) and a massive Labradoodle. Brilliantly spacious"
"But in terms of normal sized cars the Skoda Superb Estate is big enough for me to sit behind myself if I position the driver's seat appropriately"
"I drive a VW Touareg - big beast, but seriously comfortable & roomy. Jags are great for a tall driver, but not so good for rear legroom. E Class Mercedes is great for driver & still quite roomy in the back. Not too pricy second hand & great on fuel - even maintenance is not much more than average if you avoid main stealers (sorry main "dealers")"
We tried a Qashquai yesterday and it wasn't big enough, and I currently drive a Nissan Almera Tino which is uncomfortable in the back.
"Skoda Superb (back seat passenger well over 6’)!"
"I've been car shopping over the last couple of weeks, and if you're looking for a TARDIS then it's probably the Hyundai ix20. Loads of headroom, more boot capacity than many estate cars, but looks like a small family car. They also have blue drive models making them pretty efficient too"
"I had a Renault Scenic and there was a lot of room in the back"
"I have driven an XC90 for many years. No head or knee room complaints"
"I'm 6'6.5. I've just bought a family c4 Grand Picasso. There's so much driver room I've actually got to pull the drivers seat forward 3-4 inches. My brother who is 6'7 can sit behind me in it! Very reasonabley priced vehicle"
"B7 Passat estate (2011 onwards) loads of room for long female legs"
"I drive a fiat 500x. Pretty roomy in back for 6ft kids. I’m 6’1 and feel ok driving"
"Ford cmax or bigger smax. Just try it and see"
"Mum has a kia seed at 7 ft i can fit comfortable in the front seat"
"We have a VW touran it's great you can adjust the seats. It's very cost effective to run and roomy Inside"
"Skoda Superb estate. Im 6.7 and can sit comfortably everywhere in this car"
"The Skoda Kodiak is amazing for space. I could take a carful of adults, including in the extra row of rear seats, and still have legroom to drive!"
"I found the Fiat Doblo has buckets of room , and I could fit a full size dalek in the back easily with the seats down , I believe the doblo maxi is even bigger"
"I have had 4 VW Tiguans and had 4 adults in. I am 6 8 and room behind me for a good 6 footer plus. Also plenty of boot space, will hold at least 4 suitcase's at same time"
"Hyundai i10 for me, no back seats to speak of but can fit little me at 6`5 and a 6ft female Sumo wrestler in the front seats comfortably so it works for me"
"We went with the Honda CRV, the kids love the leg space in the back"
"Current car is the current Mitsubishi Colt, a fair nippy little semi automatic 1.3 ltr petrol. Naturally, first thing when I get in any car is to push the seat right back, but then I find myself pulling this one forward! I'm 6'11" and I've comfortably had passengers, 6'2", 6'3" & 6'8" all reasonably leg & head comfy in the car at the same time!
The drawbacks..; paintwork is like a Cadburys Flake, the boot is tiny and I need to wedge a cushion behind me for lumbar support"
"Updated, we now have a 2016 Hyundai i20. Semi-automatic 1.3ltr unleaded and its a dream to drive. Integrated lumbar cushion, plenty of legroom (6'11"), I can even pull the seat forward. No room for tallies in the back. The only drawback is it's so bloody low to the ground - I feel like I'm crawling in and out of it"
"Audi A5, not bad for legroom when wearing flats but not great when I’m wearing heels ... it’s a girl thing . No legroom behind me at all as seat right back ... oh well. I’m 6’ 4” "
"Citroen Berlingo is great. Did you see the test they did in Top Gear a few years ago? It fitted Britain's tallest family plus loads of stuff in it. I used to drive one of those and was very happy with it. Economic on fuel as well. I no longer need a bigger car, otherwise would have got myself one of them"
"I have a new Nissan x trail which is fine tall person wise but I also drive a fiat 500 which is also quite fine for me at 6.2 loads of legroom and head/cabin height"
I am 6’7” I’ve always had car trouble I can’t actually physically fit in a smart car.
Most roomiest was my Series 2a Land Rover. I don’t physically fit in the post 2007 Defender. Or a Series3.
But have a couple of pre 2007 Defenders one for work and one with an auto conversion for play. For trips over 200 miles I use the Skoda Yeti. Loadsa room"
"6' 11" drive a 10 plate Volvo XC90, is so good i am on my second first was a 05 plate. easy to turn sit in swirl into the seat no problem with steering wheel blocking legs, seat goes back far enough. head room good.. yep good body good motor bad part is £260 car tax cos it is diesel, good solid motor cheap second hand does 34 mpg average"
"I drive the VW Golf SV. More than ample head room for me and I’m 6ft 7inches tall"
"II drive a Vauxhal Corsa (65 plate) I’m 6ft10 and a large built man and fit perfectly with the chair back and down and the steering wheel pulled towards me and up. Great little car. Hope this helps"
"I drive a Hyundai i800 8 seater car/van. Comfy enough to drive long distances. I'm 6'7""
"I'm 6' 3", my son 6' 8" and my daughter's 6' 1" and 6' 2". We can all sit with enough headroom in my VW Touran. Happy days"
"Citroen C4 grand Picasso. I'm 6'7 and I pull the drivers seat forward a bit!! 3 full seats in the back and looooads of legroom. My 6'7 brother can sit behind me!"
