Top 10 Coupes for Tall Drivers for 2014


The coupe segment is home to some of the sexiest, most performance-oriented models in the automotive kingdom, and offers many choices that are both a treat to look at and a pleasure to drive. Certain picks in this class feature an attribute that will appeal to drivers who are on the taller end of the spectrum: ample front passenger room.

Front passenger room is an average of headroom, hiproom and legroom, and it's a metric that indicates how much room a tall driver can expect when seated behind the wheel. The 10 models listed below offer the most front passenger room in the coupe segment. Our list is dominated by enthusiast-friendly choices like the Nissan GT-R, the Dodge Challenger, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, the Ford Mustang and the Ford Shelby GT500. All measurements shown are in inches.

While headroom, hiproom and legroom measurements are available for most models, in a few cases, there's only partial availability of the data. As you'd expect, our list includes only those models that present all the measurements used to determine our rankings.

Though numbers can help you narrow your choices, the best way to see if a coupe fits your frame is to take it for a spin, so be sure to test-drive the models you're considering. Also, if you're a taller driver, consider going without a sunroof, since this feature can rob inches from a vehicle's headroom.
