Default CR-Z - no bueno for tall people..

Checked one out at the dealership a couple days ago. Gorgeous car, but a warning - I'm 6'4", and it was uncomfortable. My knees were on the dashboard, and my head was close enough to the roof that I could not wear a helmet if I wanted to race it.

Note that I also own a 1g Insight and a 90 Miata. I don't have head / legroom problems in either of these cars, just the CR-Z.

I am 6'3". I sat in one on the showroom floor and I though it had plenty of room. I do have long legs as well. This was with the seat all the way back. I am also doing this comparison against my 88 civic (leg room wise).

What kind of rear seat do those have? Obviously, tall guys like you are going to have shot gun but would someone under 6 foot be able to ride in the back? Used 2006 Audi A3 S-Line in Portland Oregon

CRZ's don't have 'rear seats' technically.

i fit in my 89 crx just fine and i'm just shy of 6'3". people always think i'm crazy for driving such a small car. but i'm looking forward to my first real life look at a cr-z!

You do know that the seat inside the crz has a lever to lower the seat down , so if you're 6'4 you should have plenty of room unless u r 700 lbs
