I'm 6'3" and fit pretty well in my Volt but down the line I am thinking of getting an ELR but I want to know if I will fit since it looks like the roof line is lower. Thanks in advance.

The 20-way seat goes down pretty far. I'm 6'0" and have 4" of headroom. Leg room is more than enough (34" inseam). Steering wheel also adjusts in/out/up/down. Don't try the back seat!

I had a gen1 Volt before. If ya fit in Volt, ELR is no problem.

I am 6' 6" and my 2014 ELR has more leg room than in any car I have ever owned. Head room is more than adequate.

6'2" is fine for me, but go sit in one to find out since every has different torso/leg proportions and seating positions. But be warned... if you sit in it you will probably want it.

It is fine. I am 6'4" and find it fine. The seat goes back pretty far, and it also goes down pretty far. I actually found the most comfortable position for me is to have the seat not all the way back, which is crazy.

If I were in the market for an ELR again, I'd try to find one with the Kona seat package. The leather is softer, and having a two position thigh extension cushion is handy for us folks over 6ft 2. Also, there are adjustable side bolsters with the Kona seats. Dead pedal placement is much better in this car than your Volt. Short story:

Had to drop of my car for service a few days ago..

Had a loner XTS 4 with the thigh cushion in the seat bottom for a couple of days, and it made the car much more pleasant to drive if you have long legs to give them some extra cushion. It's almost Barca lounger comfy.

After two days with the XTS, I can say it's a pretty nice car. Very roomy back seat, and all of the door latches light up at night when you unlock it. Handles well for an all wheel drive car.

I have no problems entering or exiting my vehicle. I drove a Volt for two years so I can say that seat comfort is a non-issue. Your back will thank you for the ELR. Long trips are a piece of cake. Try to find a car with the Kona package and the full-range adaptive cruise control. Good luck!
