I'm six foot with long legs and arms, I just fit. Headroom is not the problem legroom is. I can get comfortable, but if my legs were any longer I'd probably wouldn't. It would be nice if the seat had more fore and aft adjustment. I go to a dealership and try one on. I fiddled with the up/down, back/forth, seat tilt, and streering wheel tilt before I got comfortable. Good luck.
I have a 6'4" friend who just fits in the front passenger seat, legs barely clearing the dash. He can't sit in back because his head hits the ceiling (4WD EX with moonroof). If leaning back, his head can slip into the moonroof recess!
From what I can see, a 6'2" REAR seat passenger is the maximum height for comfortable ride (I'm 6'). I'm not sure 6'8" would fit even in front. You should go sit in one. Everyone's torso & legs are differently proportioned.
well what i need to know is how long your legs are because if mine are 36 and yours are 38 or 40 then i would understand why they dont fit. I am just hoping that your 6'4" friend has really long legs =)
I also have a tall husband and the E has the most headroom and shoulder room of any vehicle in my price range. It even has more headroom than his supersized pick-up. However, his knees just come very close to touching the glovebox area when he sits on the passenger side.
My hubby is 6'3 and also has a 36 inch inseam. He liked the fit behind the drivers seat and the passengers seat, as well as the back seat. As a matter-of-fact, he jokingly suggested trading in his Avalanche for TWO Elements! I looked at him (not so amused) and said NO! One is enough, and besides, he really truly loves his Av! :wink:
But, talltom, I'd say take your booty to your nearest Honda dealership and jump in one of them! You dont know 'till you try!
I am 6'5" with a 36" inseam and I fit pretty well in my EX. I was going to buy a Pilot because it had so much room, but the E is very comfortable for me! You should probably have enough head room as well, but like the others said, go sit in one and find out. The S2000 is out of the question though! 8)
Just kidding. However - I'm 6' with a 36 inch inseam. I could use about 2 more inches of leg room, but can manage ok with leg cramps - I get those in many other cars. The head room is wonderful though, and my 6'3" hubby, with short legs and extra tall bod - well the Element is the first SUV he can sit in without leaning all the way back!
i'm 6'5 (36 inch inseam), and i fit in my element. i wouldn't say i fit great, as my right knee ocasionally hits the dash, but overall it's nice.
I just got back from my first element road trip (700 miles to new orleans). it was comfortable to drive long distance, and when my friend took over, i got in the back and streched waaaaaaaaayyyyyy out. i couldn't recline the seats due to luggage, but my legs went diagonally across the back area and it was incredibly comfortable! i love it!
but don't bother sitting in the passenger seat, it's not so comfortable...
My husband is 6'2" (34" inseam) and I am 5'4" and he doesn't have to move the seat back when he drives my Element. He did say though that his knees are close to the glovebox, but he doesn't feel cramped. He said he has alot more room than he did in my nissan pathfinder.
