Best Cars and SUVs for Short People
We sized up vehicles to find those that are scaled for smaller drivers
A driver should fit well in his or her car for comfort and safety. This is a particular challenge for shorter or smaller drivers, who might not be able to reach the pedals and steering wheel on some vehicles or have good visibility all-around.
Recognizing this challenge, Consumer Reports uses a range of test drivers to assess driver comfort, including shorter and taller staff members. Each participant in this jury evaluates access, driving position, front-seat comfort, and visibility.
To help shorter drivers find the cars and SUVs that may fit them best, we focus here on the specific results from our shortest drivers.
