I've been wondering how tall are all the 6th gen owners out there? Obviously, Toyota did not build our cars for tall people but I'm curious how big someone can be and still fit comfortably into a Celica.

I'm 5' 7" and I don't have much room above MY head so I can only imagine how difficult it is for anyone taller. I know my brother is 5' 10" and he doesn't like riding in my car. The lack of headroom really doesn't bother me and I didn't buy my car for anyone else's comfort so I really don't care.

Just wondering if this was an issue with anybody or are we all midgets? biggrin.gif

6'0"

I had a friend on the basketball team in it (6'8") and he fit just fine.

I think ths is KINDA... off topic, but anyway

I'm 5'10" and I'm good. Its the back seat that SUCKS for tall or even average height people.

5'8" and comfortable. My dad is 6'01" and brother 6'02", they don't have a problem with it. True though, the backseat is painful...

I'm 6'2" but I have "long" legs I guess... really I dont fit, head room is fine just recline the seat... but my legs are pretty bent, but you need to sacrafice comfort for style biggrin.gif and I really only fit in trucks and I hate trucks.

I'm 5'4". No prpblems here. biggrin.gif Gosh I really didn't think anyone over 5'10" would feel at all comfortable in our celicas?

Has anyone ever sat in the newer style eclipses? Head room in the back seat sucks. I think it's our Celi's are more spacious than the Eclipses. IMO Just a thought.

5'11 and I have enough room, atleast 2-4 inches, backseat is just for show, small children, or torturing you friends.
Kwanza
5'7" 160lbs of POWER...ROAR! and I fit fine...
LuDaChRiS
5' 10" and my posture isnt that great in the drivers seat so im comfortable but probably screwing up my back...as for the back my car used to my aunts and whenever id ride in the back id just lean to the middle and stare out the windshield. hey worked for me....
LuDaChRiS
oops double post...ignore
macavely
i'm 5'6" 190lbs pure muscle baby...and the celi fits around me like a glove... but my cousin Dave is 6'3" 295lbs and is fits in the celi fine just he just can't move around a lot once he in the set..and my other cousin Max is 6'5"lbs 210 and he doesn't have problem in the celi either...

NEVERSTOP
6'4" I fit fine but gotta lay the seat back... got plenty of leg room with the bottom of the seat slide all the way back too.

BTW: in cars like ours the back seats are really ment for passangers.. there more for insurance purposes
Andason
Jesus... y'all a bunch of tall people.

5'11. 260. fit fine in those nice comfy 7th gen seats. smile.gif.
CupCrazy38
5'9" and the car is just perfect. Have lots of room. My dad has enough room in the car and he's 6'2" 230lbs. Not much head room for him, but he fits. The biggest problem he has is how low the car sits... according to him.
aaronc222
6', and have yet to have a problem. The back seats are great for children, but don't really fit adults. Nice for when I pick up my friends and their kids can ride in the back.

As far as leg/head room, even with the moonroof I have more than 2" of head space, and pushing the seat back I can make it so I almost can't touch the pedals.
Akimbo
5'7 135 pounds, I fit perfectly...the Celica is so me. Got a friend who is skinny and 6'5 and drives an MR2:P
zigy
hahha I'm 6.7....... but I also have no back seats (easy nitrous acces); so that way my seats are about 2" back, and they are reclined... but then I'm really comfy... most of the friends/chicks that come into my car they are like : HOLLY ****; there is lots of room in this car ... i mean look at the leg room.... lol
van95st
6'2" i think there's plenty of room, as long as you have the seat bottom adjusted all the way down and pushed all the way back. of course i'd hate to try and fit anyone in the seat behind me. biggrin.gif

i actually have lots of leg room for being 6.5 and i cant fit into 2gen eclipses at all, i cant bend my knees to touch the pedals..and i am comfortable in the sixth gen and i was almost sure when i first saw my car it wouldnt work out.. but no way anyone fits behind me..

You'd be surprised at which cars 'tall' people can actually fit in. My friend Danny is 6'7" and fits Celicas just fine. He said that when he was shopping around, MR2s(2nd gen) and CRXs were two of the best fits, and he couldn't sit in most trucks(because the seats don't go back). Last I heard(he moved to Alaska last year) he still had his 85 Celica GTS coupe and his 88 4-runner 2-door 4x4.

I'm 6"4' and I have no problems with room. I have the seat all the way back and leaning back cause if not my hair rubs against the sunroof. The only time I have any difficulities is when there are 5 ppl in the car or I'm in the back seat when tall ppl are in the front.

5'11" here. I've found that heavier people have a harder time fitting in our cars than tall people. For some reason they sit much higher in the seats. I think my coupe has a lot more headroom in the rear seat than a hatchback. I have been in a hatchback, but my head is no where near touching the ceiling in my back seat.
