Best SUVs For Tall Drivers Page 2

May 3, 2015

Land Rover Discovery Sport
The seats are firm yet soft enough, fully supportive, and quite upright; yet there’s plenty of headroom and the seat track goes rearward more than any other vehicle we can think of in this class. At a long-legged 6’-6”, I didn’t even need to slide the seat back all the way.

Volvo V60 Cross Country
The headroom could be a little tight for those who are especially tall in the torso, and some long-legged drivers (like this one) will find that their knees are up against hard barriers. The XC90, which is arriving soon, offers even more long-legged space, by the way. As with the Discovery Sport, the passenger-side front cushions tilt and adjust the same way as those for the driver’s seat.

BMW X5M and X6M
These are phenomenally good sport seats. And with extendable thigh bolsters and a rather high back, they have support in all the ways that some seats are lacking. Footwells feel long, headroom is abundant, and the front-seat area in general feels spacious. This is tall-guy heaven.
