The Best Used Cars to Buy If You’re Over Six Feet Tall

Used Car for Over 6 Feet

While shorter than average drivers can have a tough time finding the right car, it’s equally hard for taller drivers, perhaps more so. If you’re feeling squished, or have to hunch over the wheel to drive, then you’re not comfortable, and you’re certainly not safe. Here are a few of the best used cars to buy if you’re over six feet tall.

  • 2015 Kia Optima: Sure, the 2015 Optima is a great looking car, but from the outside, it doesn’t seem to offer that much room. It’ll surprise you, though. There’s actually 40 inches of headroom in there. You also get 45.5 inches of legroom in the front, making this one of the single best choices for taller drivers.

  • 2013 Hyundai Sonata: Another Korean import, the 2013 Sonata manages to deliver both elegance and lots of interior space. It offers 40 inches of front headroom, and 45.5 inches of front legroom. Hip room is also great, coming in at 55.2, meaning that it’s great for big and tall drivers.

  • 2013 Cadillac XTS: When it comes to headroom, you’ll find that the 2013 Cadillac XTS manages to beat out a lot of other options, delivering a full 40.1 inches. Combine that with 45.8 inches of front legroom and 55.1 inches of hip room, and you can tell why this is one of the best options for taller drivers.

  • 2014 Kia Cadenza: Another Kia on the list? Yep, the Cadenza manages to equal the Optima in terms of front headroom (40 inches) as well as in front legroom (45.5 inches). It beats it out in terms of hip room, though (55.5, which is actually more than the Cadillac offers). Couple those features with the fact that the Cadenza is actually a very good looking car, and you may have a winner.

  • 2015 GMC Terrain: While you probably won’t find that many used models available, the Terrain makes a great choice for those who need the capabilities and cargo hauling capacity of an SUV. It offers 39.8 inches of front headroom, which is slightly less than some of the other options. It also provides 41.2 inches of front legroom and 39.9 inches of legroom for the second row seats.

Big and tall drivers definitely have more options than ever before – these are just a few of them.
