Well, I don't lean my seat all the way back to where I can see out the rear quarter window, but I do have it reclined more than I would in a taller car. I'm 5'11" and I have about 1" to spare above my head in the SX. The EX had PLENTY of headroom, I just didn't like the wheels or interior trim.
Over time, the seat foam has compressed and given me a little more headroom. When I first bought it, I could feel my hair rubbing on the headliner. Thankfully, that has stopped.
Totally depends on the persons torso measurement. You can be 6'3" and have stumpy legs and long torso and not fit very well in the Koup with Sunroof. I am 6" but have long legs and have no issues what so ever at any seat setting in both the SX and EX, could feel the hair brushing in the SX with seat raised though.
This discussion has been had a few times, and people always seem to be like LOL YOU MUST BE STUPID AND NOT KNOW HOW TO ADJUST A CAR SEAT.
Attention forum watchers: PEOPLE CAN BE TALL IN DIFFERENT WAYS. I'm 6'5 and fit fine in a koup EX but with the moonroof in the SX my head rubbed against the ceiling so I opted for the sedan SX. There have been people taller than me that fit in the koup fine and people who are shorter who don't fit in it. It depends on if your tall in your lower or upper body.
If your heart is set on the koup go for the EX without the sunroof and you should be fine with that extra inch of headroom. Otherwise opt for the SX sedan. You don't want to be taking long trips if your head is uncomfortably hitting the roof.
I'm 6'... No problem Especially if you drive with sunroof open haha. But seriously you should have absolutely no problem. i mean if they didnt have the option to lower your seat anyway... pretty big design flaw lol
I was almost thinking of taking a photo for you guys. But like others said, some have longer legs while others have longer upper bodies. So you really have to sit in it for awhile because, even if you do fit, you might not be as comfy once you're sitting in the car stuck in traffic for over an hour or on a long trip.
