BEST VEHICLES FOR TALLER OR SHORTER THAN AVERAGE PEOPLE

Posted in Pictures, Video, Commercials, Media, Uncategorized by wolferadio11 on April 2, 2011

While most cars are supposedly designed for a wide range of physiques and statures, many vehicles don’t accommodate shorter or taller drivers very well. To find out which vehicles are better or worse for each, tall and short people recently tested vehicles, for seat comfort, driving position, access, and the view out.  The shortest tester is 5 feet 1 inch, while the tallest is 6 feet 4 inches. A handful of cars are especially versatile and were rated very highly by both tall and short testers. Families with different-sized drivers might consider the Honda Accord or the Subaru Forester. Similarly, several models serve neither tall nor short drivers well, such as the Mitsubishi Eclipse and the Lotus Elise. Sports cars by their very nature cater poorly to both extremes: Tall people hit the roof, while short people can’t reach the clutch.
