Six-footers in the back of a Fiat 500


Our passenger is just about 6'2". Please note, the front seat is pushed pretty far forward in this shot.


People up to 6'6" tall (Jeremy Clarkson) have been comfortable in the front seat of the Fiat 500. Now here are a couple of shots of 6 foot tall passengers sitting in the back seat of one. It can be done! The European Fiat 500 was designed to accommodate at the same time, a 6'1" driver and a 5'9" passenger. Most peoples first impressions of the interior of the Fiat 500 are; how roomy (and nice) the interior is.

Another 6 foot tall individual. The front seat is farther back and at a more natural position than the picture above. If the driver and passenger are willing to share some of their ample space, a surprising amount of rear seat room can be had.




Here is a video of someone who is 6'3" sitting in the back seat of a Fiat 500. He is having some fun for the camera, but also seems genuinely surprised with the amount of room inside the car!

To learn more, check out these two stories on the interior design of the Fiat 500: "The Fiat 500 interior accommodations" and this one: "Inside the Fiat 500" (be sure to watch the video).

I have one passenger that goes in back, and she is used to getting the squeeze anyway.
