Go sit in one and know for sure.

Not sure, but getting in and out of the seat sounds like it would be the hard part. Like BohoMark said, sit in one and you will know for sure.

It sounds like at your height, almost any car will be not as comfortable as sitting in your recliner in front of the TV. I know several 6'4'' guys that have no issues, they just learn to live with it as if they were in any other car. The Corvette is made for "average" people, but your pushing the envelope in that area. Your knees is what would be the concern here, do they rest on the underside of the dash? If so, I'vd venture to guess a long road trip may not be as comfortable as being in a Lincoln town car. Go rent one, take it on a long weekend drive to enjoy it. If you do enjoy it, place your order. If you don't cry a little and look around.


Im 6'4" and it's not comfortable for long trip but in city it's doable.

Actually, on long road trips, my butt gets cramps from my legs setting higher because the seats are low, as is the car. People don't realize the Corvette is so low until after a lengthy drive, they try to get out. I'm only 6' and have the seat all the way back. I only have issues with reaching the radio or shifting the stick shift without leaning to the right. I drive the old style, with my arms extended out, that's why the seat is back. The cockpit is cramped even for us "shorter" people, but the seat backs are comfortable on the longer rides. The only advantage to being 6'4" or above, is you know before I do when it starts to rain. :-).

Think it is more about your build than height... I'm 6'2" and a big guy... plenty of leg room, but not as 'wide' as I would like it to be... but it is comfortable enough... I wouldn't take it cross contry, but as a daily driver or even a short drive up the coast, it is fine...

Legroom is most important to me. at 6'4" I have long legs and a rather short torso so head room is not an issue but legroom is. Guess I'll need to go sit in one to be certain.


Ever fly SouthWest airlines? The Corvette seats are wider and leg room is longer. Only if your passenger can bring you a mixed drink will it be similar. No it is not a Cadillac or a Lincoln Town-car, but like everything else, once you get used to it, your complaints will go away. You will remember the thrill of the drive, the joy of having others look at your ride, and it really is comfortable. In our Corvette Club we have had very tall people drive around in the Corvette, even the C-3s. They worked out just fine. Like a horse, once in the saddle, it's a great ride.


The best thing for you to do, is to bring a can of lube with you and grease yourself up before getting into the corvette. This can also help you when trying to get out of it too. If the fit is too tight, at least you'll still have the lube with you to entice the sales girl or secretary with. Possibly, she has the keys to the back seat of a new Chevy Tahoe on the lot, where you can get some action.

The newer Corvettes addressed the growing population. Get in one and drive it. If you want, rent one for the weekend and go on a long drive. I have a tall trunk and med. length legs, so the roof rubs my head but I need to move up one click for my feet to reach the end of the cab. Try it you'll like it.

I have a C5 and my knees are 4" from the dash. I drove it from Virginia to FL in one day. It was like I was in my easy chair all day. Plenty of luggage space. I went to buy a new C7. I got in and my knees were jammed up to the dash. Salesman said "You can't drive this car." Trunk is MUCH smaller than C5. l
