Tall Family Car?
What some of our members say when asked what is a good tall persons family car. We of course would suggest a test sitting first, but this gives you a starting point in your search.
"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"
"VW Golf SV are also very spacious, similar to the Tiguan for space but cheaper. Don't go for the Golf Plus as these not the same as the Golf SV"
"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"
