Tall people

Hi I am six foot four person and my friend is six foot three and we went to autoshow and tried out all cars there and I must say big cars do not offer big seating space... Mustang me at front and my friend at rear was not happening I locked him inside rear by squeezing him all the way lol he had to stay there stuck till somone came to help him lol and we tried Fiat 500 and yeah he was dumb enough to get into same trick he was in pain lol and same story goes for lots of cars... but surprisingly BMW z4 only small car that made both of us actually fit lol speaking of fit Honda Fit was big enough for me at front in comfortable position and him at rear passenger seat and have no problem with leg room lol I was surprised lol same goes for civic sedan and accord lol but let me just say ford F250 truck front passenger seat due to transmission they had to make stupid bump on there and it wasnt comfortable for my legs... what are the biggest car out there for tall people like me? or you?

No offense, but cars like the mustang and Fiat 500 are not built for rear passenger space. That is the last priority of importance for cars like that, so I don't understand why you'd try to stuff someone tall like yourselves in there in the first place??? lol

I forgot to mention all cars that was in autoshow compared to honda fit every car was smaller than fit unless it was toyota tundra size or nissan armada size ford fusion... man what a small car. its hard to say this but I think honda beat any american cars for passenger room like shoulder room head room leg room. most disappointing car in passenger room wise was Jeep Wrangler me and my friend wasnt able to look forward due to roof section blocking our view maybe if we had gangster lean on it might have worked still no head room.... I thought american cars would be larger than asian cars but I was wrong all asian car truck suv was more bigger and comfortable compared to american counter part. Maybe its american way to make people slim again lol HONDA RULES!!

I'm 6'7" and 250lbs.
I've owned two 7th gen Grand Prix's and they were roomy inside, relatively cheap to repair and everything was reliable minus the automatic tranny.

Since then, I sat in just about every single car searching for my next vehicle.
Headroom-wise Nissan Cube and VW Golf/Rabbit (even with a sunroof I had what felt like inches) provided me with the most amount of room.
The cube is ugly but I encourage you to sit in one because there is a TON of room in it, though I also found the seat to be not that comfortable.
The center console of the golf/rabbit was uncomfortable against my leg. It has an unnecessary design where the console meets the dash which does not at all have to be there. I was debating on purchasing the car and building a custom dash. However the gas mileage sucked.

In the end I picked a 2005 Civic Coupe 5spd. with no sunroof.
This provided me the most amount of overall room and comfortability. As well, the longer door on the coupe allows me to actually look out the window, and not at the b-pillar, which I find happens in all sedans, and it's annoying and makes the car feel even smaller.
I encourage you to find a 7th gen coupe with no sunroof, and you will fall in love, just as I did. =]

I was looking at 8th gen Civics as well, but the interior definitely has less room for taller/bigger persons.

I have been in 7th gen coupe lots of times and also 5th gen coupe also. but to be honest for some reason 5th gen was more comfortable and more roomy both had sunroof though.

Were you driving though?
I kind of find it cramped as the passenger, for some reason the driver seat feels lower. Maybe just more worn..haha
Yeah, definitely try without a sunroof, my buddy's SI, my head goes actually IN the sunroof while sitting in the driver seat. My car, I have about an inch and a bit to the roof.
