I have a son in law who is 6'6", and I suspect his kid will be a monster before he's 10.

Can somebody comment about tall people fitting in this car in both the front and back seats?

I'm not talking about "cram the front seat all the way forward" I want to know if two six footers and sit in the front and the back seats, without being crowded

I'm 6' 1" 200lbs and can comfortably drive and sit behind myself. He could fit in the driver's seat comfortably. That said, in the back seat I only have an inch or two of headroom and legroom to spare. So at 6' 6", I don't think he would fit behind himself. Assuming their kid sits behind the passenger (aka mom) and the kid grows up to be big like his dad, perhaps legroom would be ok. However, I think the headroom in the rear for anyone over 6' 2" - 6' 3" would be pushing the comfortability limit. Just my opinion. If there is an owner of a similar size to your son-in-law, perhaps they can weigh in.

Hi all. I'd say 6' 1" is about the limit. My son is 6 even and sits behind me, and just has a very little head room. We have the TPP and I would strongly recommend going with the top of the line.

Good luck on your purchase.
PS-I'll soon have mine in service for the 5K, and am not happy with the very inadequate passenger side wiper blade. Hopefully it can be adjusted. Won't wipe bugs off the windshield like the larger and seemingly stronger driver side wiper blade. (I use bug wiper fluid) Anyone else notice this?

I am 5’-9”, but have a large torso and head. when in the drivers seat, I have hit my head on the headliner a few times over particularly bad ruts in a dirt road. I also have my drivers seat in the highest position. It’s ok for normal driving though. The back seat isn’t particularly great for headroom either but I haven’t spent much time there.

Also just to point out, the seating height of the cx-50 is a bit on the lower side for an suv.

Legroom isn’t a problem for me but I also have short legs for my height.
