Hi all,

Just wanted to see how the taller people out there find the Fiesta mk7 for leg space?

I'm 6'3 and have to bring the seat forward quite a bit as it goes back WAY further than any other small car (or even some family sized cars ie: golf)

I'm 6'1" and no problems - can't really have someone behind me though.

Am also 6ft 3 and like to drive almost layed down, as you say Adam LOADS of space, I looked at a Hyundai i20 before the fiesta and that was like a sit up driving position with the seat full back.

6'2", find it very comfortable, much better than the Fiats I had before.

Only issue you might have is headroom if you jack the seat up.

Blimey we have some tall chaps on here. Good to know the little car can cope with you all.

As above, 6'1" no probs whatsoever as a driver although I wouldn't fancy sitting in the back too often :)

Hightower was my thoughts exactly!

I'm 6'3", I have the seat reclined a bit (partly because I'm uber cool, partly because I have gorilla arms) but unlike my other recent cars - Corolla, Pug 206 - I don't have to have the seat all the way back - in fact I'd say I have it about 4-5 notches forward. I can get a friend in the back, admittedly a short woman. At 6'8", I probably wouldn't expect to get anyone in the back, but if you're going to fit in any small car, it'll probably be a Fiesta :)
