Couple questions for the tall guys?

In searching I couldn't find a really good answer to my question so...

I've found myself usually having problems with my knees in the steering wheel with a lot of cars. Im 6'4" and if I can get a car with a telescoping wheel I'm OK but to my understanding, the coupe doesn't have one (?).

How do you tall guys fit?

I'm about 6'1" and i dont have any trouble, i find tht even though the coupe doesnt have a telescopic wheel it is already moved pretty far forward. And even if it is a bit further back, we have a long reach

I'm 6'4 and I fit fine. Occasionally my hair will rub against the roof, but that's about it.

I'm 6'2" and had no trouble at all during my hour long test drive. You can adjust the wheel up and down so you can raise it if you need too. You're just going to have to test drive it to know if you like it though. My knees are really close to hitting the wheel in my s2000 but they weren't even close in the Genesis Coupe.

Ha, OK. So I might be OK. Ive sat in an S2000 before and could probably move it from point a to b, but not comfortably.

I drove a 997 GT3RS last night and the only thing that rubbed was the cruise (?) columns on the bottom of the wheel (at about 4 and 8 o'clock). The coupes scare me but my current car (08 Subaru) doesn't have that problem due to the telescoping wheel.

I'm 6'3" and I always have these types of concerns when buying a new car.

The Genesis coupe has lots of room up front, but Hyundai should have used a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. I like the seating position, and I have no problem with leg or head room, but it would be a tad more comfortable if I could bring the wheel back a smidge.

I am 6'3" and i don't have a problem but I would advise to sit in the beast I have a longer torso and vs legs and other are the opposite this would adversly effect the fitment etc.

I fit fine

I used to be 6' 5" (when I stood up straight). I wouldn't mind a hair more head room, but I'm not complaining.

I am 6'4", the leg room is actually really good, and head room is good too, unless you get the sunroof.

Take one out for a test drive. That will let you know.
