To all of the guys out there, I'm 5'6 and live in New York City. What cars do you suggest as being best for a guy my size? I've checked out a load of cars in the last month or so. I know the stereotype is that short guys drive big cars to overcompensate, but the last thing I'd ever want to drive is a huge car. Add to that, living in the city, space is premium, so if I bought a big car, I'd probably never get parking!

The criterea of a car for me would be $28,000 or less, preferably roomy enough for my size, but compact enough to fit anywhere. Power seats are a must, leather interior when all possible. I would rather drive a coupe, but if you really recommend a sedan and can tell why, then I will consider it.

Some of the cars I've checked out were the Nissam Altima coupe ($10K or less used), the Honda Civic EX-L, the Acura RSX (they don't make it anymore, but some of the later models look great and do have a leather interior). There is also the Volkswagen Golf, Volkswagen Jetta (they don't make it in a Coupe, boooo), and then some of the older BMW coupes which are really nice, but I am afraid of maintanance costs.

Any of you guys have any suggestions? What would you recommend and why? I'd prefer a late model, but not necessarily new (2007+)

I would recommend checking out the RSX. It is an excellent car for guys our size. It's small, compact and great on gas. I used to live in Los Angeles where parking was a real thorn in the rear, but somehow, I'd always manage to find parking because I could fit in the tightest of spots with that whip.


Plus, you can get it in leather, it has a rear windshield wiper, you can remove the backseat and make it a hatchback, and they all come stock with a Bose sound system. They don't make the car anymore. It was discountinued in 2006, making it a real bargain right now. I would go with one of the 05-06 models as the body design looks more modern. However, if I had to get a brand new car today. I'd probably go with the Civic becuase it is the closest thing to the RSX. Both are made by Honda, so you know they're going to be reliable.

I'd go with an Altima coupe. They look like Infinitis like the G37 or G35 but cost WAY WAY less. Plus Nissan does make Infiniti. They're hot.

If you can afford it and afford the maintanance, go for a BMW coupe. 3 series. I have the 330ci and would never give it up unless I had the money for a newer mode.
