What are the best cars for tall drivers?

Asked by Feb 26, 2018 at 06:58 AM

Question type: General

I'm 6ft tall, I have long legs & occasionally have
back pain on & off. I would like to know which cars
are best suited for tall drivers? As most cars I get
into, I don't feel comfortable, my legs are to one
side & my posture isn't straight.

Any suggestions?

I too suffer from back problems and do find some cars are better than others. I've found some Mazdas, Volvos and Fords to have been quite good. In really bad cases it is possible to have the pedals moved to the left slightly which can align the pedals more directly in front of the driver. Personally I find that heated seats keep my back from tightening during long journeys. It's very hard to discover the information you're after. Having a look at dash shots on the internet can help - see two attached images - Volvo pedals seem more in line that the BMW ones pictured. Hope this helps and let us know if you find any cars that are better than others
