The Ten Worst Small Cars For Big People

Tall people historically make more money and enjoy more success than shorter individuals, but these advantages are wiped out when it comes to cars. The smaller you are, the more cars you can drive. Here are the cars Jalopnik readers think are the worst for big people.

Welcome back to Answers of the Day — our daily Jalopnik feature where we take the best ten responses from the previous day's Question of the Day and shine it up to show off. It's by you and for you, the Jalopnik readers. Enjoy!

10.) Honda S2000

Suggested By: pauljones

How Small Is It? Some drivers can only enjoy it with the top down. Not because they love the wind in their hair, but because their heads don't fit.


9.) 1970s Honda CVCC

Suggested By: Team Punkass

How Small Is It? It's so small, it makes the S2000 look like a bus.


8.) Lotus Elise

Suggested By: Vlan1

How Small Is It? If you're over 5' 11" we'd suggest learning to drive barefoot. But it's worth it.


7.) Pontiac Fiero

Suggested By: Bob Smith

How Small Is It? As the joke goes: you don't get in a Pontiac Fiero, you put it on.


6.) The Mazda Miata

Suggested By: Everyone

How Small Is It? If everyone could fit comfortably into a Miata, there'd be no reason why everyone wouldn't own one.


5.) Any Triumph

Suggested By: Solracer

How Small Is It? True to the name, fitting into a Spitfire or Dolomite is an accomplishment worth celebrating. Of course, you'll spend so much time outside the car pushing the cramped quarters aren't that inconvenient.


4.) An F1 Car

Suggested By: Kiwi_Commander

How Small Is It? Formula One drivers are larger than life, but in real life most of them are quite small for a reason.


3.) BMW Isetta

Suggested By: SennaMP4

How Small Is It? It's the perfect date car, because the person you're picking up will practically be sitting in your lap the whole ride. Also, it looks great.

2.) Lancia Stratos

Suggested By: RawToast

How Small Is It? "I'm going to change gears now, this WILL involve man-touching."

1.) Peel P50

Suggested By: SennaMP4

How Small Is It? Just watch this video of Jeremy Clarkson in a Peel.
