Cars for people with long legs. Any recommendations? Cloudiax Jan 28th, 07, 02:05 AM #1

Well. Looking for a car that is suitable for tall people with long legs.

I drove Toyota Vios before, but the roof is kinda low. And my legs are too long for the low steering wheel placement.

Any ideas what to get? Haha. Budget cars will be good.

Wonder how is Honda Jazz?

i'm quite tall too... but my car is not within your price range...

a suggestion is to just remove the front driver's seat and sit in the back seat to drive if you get a small car!

Aveo will be a tight fit. Even I have to pull the front seat quite far back to accommodate my style.
