Tall drivers appreciate the extra space in the 2017 VW Golf

October 12th, 2016 by

How much legroom is there in the 2017 Volkswagen Golf?

For tall drivers, there’s nothing worse than being crammed in a compact car during long drives. Having enough legroom can be a big deciding factor for many people looking to get behind the wheel of a new vehicle. But just because you’re on the taller side, doesn’t mean that smaller, compact vehicles aren’t a comfortable option for you. Models like the 2017 Volkswagen Golf offer plenty of legroom for both front and second row passengers, making it a great option for tall drivers looking to conserve garage space.

With its sporty drive and fuel efficient engine, it’s no wonder that so many car shoppers put the 2017 VW Golf at the top of their lists. And while it has about the same compact length and width as a small sedan, the Golf’s hatchback construction gives owners much more room to work with, both in terms of passenger and cargo space.

One such area that the Golf excels is its spacious amount of legroom. For the driver and front passenger, there’s a total of 41.2 inches of legroom, that’s almost three and a half feet, making it a great option for tall passengers to stretch out and sit comfortably. There’s also plenty of room in the back seat, with 35.6 inches of legroom available, making it easy for all passengers to comfortably sit, even on long road trips.

Headroom in the 2017 VW Golf

Just as important as having enough room for your legs, you don’t want to have to spend your drive ducking your head. Not having enough headroom in your vehicle can cause neck and back problems over time, especially if you have a long commute. To combat this, the Volkswagen Golf offers a higher ceiling, giving the driver and passengers extra space to sit happily.

In the front, the Golf offers 38.4 inches of headroom, while passengers in the second row also get 38.1 inches of headroom.

Between its ample legroom and headroom, the 2017 Volkswagen Golf is a great choice for drivers both short and tall, whether you’re 5’3” or 6’3”!
