These Vehicles Make the Most Sense for Short Drivers

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the average woman in the United States is 5-feet-4-inches tall and the average male is 5-feet-9-inches tall. For drivers who fall on the short end of the height spectrum, finding a vehicle that works for their size can be challenging.

Technological innovations, including a telescoping steering wheel, electronically moving pedals, and multi-way power-adjustable front seats, make being behind the wheel a more user-friendly experience for short drivers.

The vehicles that are best for short individuals combine these technologies with good sight lines, lower door sills, and power closing liftgates.
