Interior room, Good news for you taller guys!

My freind is 6'5" and built like a freakin warrior. He sat down in the IVER and said he was comfortable. In fact before he got in he moved the seat all the way back, but when he sat in the drivers seat he had to move it foreward an inch or so. I about died when he did it.

He said that he would have to drive it to verify that he is 100% comfortable, but he said that it is not bad.

That's great news. My dad is 6'2" and I want to take him for a ride when I get one. I was hoping he could appreciate it as much as I do.

True but if your freind plans on having 3 freinds tag along, it ain't gonna happen. We tested it in the IVER car and when you put the seat all the way back and then move it ahead one inch, the drivers seat is still against the back seat cushion. In other words, any freinds travelling in the seat behind your buddy better not have any legs.

^at least they have the option. Otherwise once they find out they don't fit, they never look at the car as an option again.

I think people are more concerned that they can fit comfortably in thier camaro, rather than their friends. It sure as heck wouldnt stop me from buying one if someone couldnt sit in the back seat.

Im 6'6 and well any car that I have sat in that is a coupe the back seat HAS zero room behind me. Hell even some sedans I have drove its the same problem.

In fact when I get back from this deployment Im taking the rear seats OUT of my Formula for good because they are basically useless. Its my car and you dont have to ride in it.

Im 6'4 but all Leg and I have trouble fitting in a lot of cars. I am pretty built and very wide shoulders. This is good news but I will have to try it for myself when it comes out. I can just barely pull off a vette with the seat all the way back and the tilt wheel all the way up. I was hoping if I don't go with the vette that the camaro would be a little less snug

My older brother and I showed up Saturday and he's 6'4 & built like a brickhouse.
He had the same results, he moved the seat all the way back, got in, & then had to scoot the seat up. I immediately started laughing because He NEVER has to scoot up.

Yeah, all I care about is if my 5'11" frame can fit in the cockpit. And guess what? It can!

I'm 6'1" 360 and built ah........ well, you can see for your self...

I had plenty of room in the IVER... I too had to move the seat forward to reach the pedals... I really did not pay attention to the back seats because I will never have but two people in my Camaro at a time…
