Question Interior size for Big Guy

I'm 6'3'' 320 lbs, and i'm worried that i won't be able to fit in the car without being uncomfortable and that driving will be hard due to the fact that most reviews say that the front and back are hard to see out of.

Any sports coupe like this won't be like your normal car the 4rth gens had blinds spots also you just have to get used to them and compensate by using your side mirrors better. As far as fit I'm 6'7 and do ok in the regular top I don't fit in the sun roofed one, head actually touches. You should have plenty of headroom on both. As far as width I'm 280 and I did fine but then again I'm 4 inches taller. Now the best thing you can do is find the auto-show schedule and go sit in a car. That or wait till May when your dealer nearby has one.

You should be fine if you fit well in the Mustang and Challanger, try them out.

The Camaro really has a roomy interior. I'm not as tall as you, but I sit tall (short legs long torso) and there is sure plenty of room in width and length around the seat. It's probably the best fitting performance car for a guy your size.

When the reviews talk about claustrophobic what they really mean is the view to the outside. It's got essentially a chopped top like custom hot rods so yes their is less outside coming in but I Like it.
