My Dad is a really really big chap & struggles to fit in a lot of cars. I was fancying a V40 for myself but need him to be able to drive it. I know he will need to try it for himself but it is very demoralising to ask him to try cars he has no chance with so was wondering what you guys think about the room & adjustability for the drivers seat before he has another disappointing showroom visit.

Thanks a lot

Well I'm 5ft 8, put the seat on the 2nd highest setting and still have loads of headroom above my head. I believe anyone up to 6ft 5 should still fit height wise, without hitting their heads on the lowest seat setting, though perhaps the person seated directly behind would have little or no leg room.

I'm 6'5", fairly slim and fit OK. Sometimes need to lean forward to see when the lights turn green but that's probably to be expected in most cars for someone of my height!

Is he very fat or very tall?

If he's fat I don't think the V40 would be the best bet. I knew a very large man once and he always drove Mondeos.
