Finding clothes that fit, an attractive date and respect? Those things can sometimes be challenging for us Short Men (Don't get me started on peers who can't stand a confident short man). If that wasn't enough, because of our modest size, finding a car with the right feel can even be a bit of a task! You know the stereotype about short men driving big cars.. (Don't get me started on that!).

No worries, there are cars that suit us compact fellas just fine! This article will list the ten best, that is the ten best cars for us shorter folk as determined by us and some car industry experts! 

For a car to be a good pick for us modern shorter gents, it must check the following boxes:

  • Accessibility (so things can be in reach)

  • Comfort (so you don't feel awkward while driving or entering)

  • Visibility (so you can see everything easily)

  • Size (for obvious reasons)

  • Style (you want to look great!)

We mentioned that some of the items on our list were chosen by Car Industry Experts. These include Consumer Reports, Edmunds and U.S.A Today. For their tests, they had drivers all the way down to 5 feet! For our picks, we'll justify why we chose them. Without further adieu, here is our list (scroll all the way down for the breakdown):

 

Make/Model, Car Type, Price

  1. Honda Civic | Coupe | $19,150

  2. Volkswagen GTI | Coupe | $25,595

  3. BMW 3 Series | Coupe | $33,450

  4. Honda Accord | Coupe | $24,125

  5. Subaru Forester | Crossover | $22,595

  6. Nissan Juke | Crossover| $20,250

  7. Lexus LC | Coupe | $92,975

  8. Genisis G90 | Sedan | $68,100

  9. Acura TLX | Sedan | $32,000

  10. Nissan 370z | Coupe | $29,990

 

Now let's break down one by one, why these cars made the cut:

 

#1: Honda Civic

Our choice. Beautifully redesigned, the tenth generation Civic Coupe has a modern and edgy exterior and small enough to fit in the tiniest parking spots.

The cabin is quite roomy and the seats aren't that far away from the pedals. Driving a Civic is fun. Selling one when you're ready is just as fun! One of the best things about Hondas is their resale value in the long term.

#2: Volkswagen GTI

A favorite of young professionals everywhere, the seventh generation GTI screams youth and ambition.

It's small size and rugged yet sleek low-profile appearance means it is great for urban exploration, cruising after-work while still in suit & tie or for the occasional road trip. The second row is roomy enough for your friends of all sizes. 

 

#3. BMW 3/4 Series

The classic "baller" vehicle. The 3 and 4 series cars are small enough that a modestly sized gentleman like yourself can reach either side of the cabin to get whatever you need.

Fast enough to satisfy your speed demands (don't do it), and elegant enough to get the attention of anyone who is staring in your direction, if you can afford the maintenance, the "Beamer" 3 and 4-series are both absolutely worth it. There is a reason why Lloyd Banks put "Beamer" before "Benz" and "Bentley" in one of his most popular songs and why so many artists write songs about them.

#4. Honda Accord

When in doubt, get an Accord. Larger than those mentioned prior on this list, the seats are adjustable to the point where you can get right in front of the wheel and higher off the floor if you desire.

The quintessential affordable vehicle, recent revamps give it a more modern quasi-luxurious appearance. In addition to it not splitting your wallet in half, the fact that it is so popular means that upkeep in the long term won't be that tough to swallow. My first car was a Honda Accord and I'll never forget how reliable it was.

 

#5. Subaru Forester

Looks are subjective and from our perspective, the Forester might not win any awards for 'modern' style. However, where this crossover lacks in appearance, it makes up in conveniences for the shorter driver.

The seats are positioned in such a way that drivers have a better view through the windshield and surrounding windows, while distance from the car floor to the ground is short enough for easing entering and exiting. All-wheel-drive advanced driver assistance technology of course is also nice plus.

 

#6. Nissan Juke

This crossover is the epitome of everything 2010s. To some, it stands out a bit too much. To others it's exactly what a car in between an SUV and a Sedan should look like. The Juke is small enough to fit where most SUVs won't.

Some Juke Perks include great visibility and lots of storage room in the rear if you're not ferrying a lot of passengers. One big minus however are the anecdotes of not-so-stellar gas mileage on car forums where the Juke is a topic.

 

#7. Lexus LC Coupe

Have a lot of cash? If money is no object, at almost $100K, the LC Coupe Hybrid deserves a look. In two-seat coupe fashion, you're dealing with distinct styling and a high price tag. With a bigger 471 horsepower engine with a 10 speed automatic transmission, the LC is fun to drive.

For shorter people who are well-to-do, the low set cabin makes getting in and out easier and it doesn't take much adjusting to get a nice view while feeling comfortable. 30 miles per gallon isn't anything to write home about, but decent for a car of this type (though not for the price!).

#8. Genesis G90 Sedan

Hyundai is relatively new to the luxury market and the price tag matches its target class. At $68,000, while it might be out of reach for many in terms of price, its conveniences make it an extremely comfortable ride, particularly for shorter individual.

Its seats are infinitely adjustable. Couple that with the big windshield, adjustable wheel and pedals and you can customize your G90 to create an extremely comfortable driving environment.

 

#9. Acura TLX

Acura is Honda's luxury line, but with the exception of its NSX, the pricing of their car-range is moderate. The TLX, like it's MDX cousin features a 10 power adjustable seat as standard which makes for a comfortable ride whether you are tall or short.

The passenger seats in the rear suffer from cramped legroom, but if you're passengers aren't tall, this is a non-issue. Bluetooth, Siri-Hands-Free, Apple Car Play, Android Auto, Rear-View cameras and a lot of tech will remind you that we're in the 21st century. Like Hondas, Acuras hold their resale value for a long time.

#10. Nissan 370Z

The 370 and it's predecessor, the 350 always gets a second look wherever it's parked. It's sloped front and chrome handles for many is absolute eye candy. It has an extremely low cabin and a smaller space which taller folk complain about but this of course is a neutral for shorter drivers. It's adjustable seats get you right on the steering wheel if you wish.

It's a two-seater, so you won't be driving your entourage around, but with sleek styling and 350 horsepower, you might not care. 27 miles per gallon isn't stellar, but you're not buying this car because you want save on gas mileage.
