I'm 6'2" and can't test drive any Corolla Cross vehicles nearby (none are available at the dealerships on the lot, but you can order them). How are tall drivers liking the fit of this car? How is the line of sight?
I have an '09 Venza and the fit is fine, but the line of sight isn't good. I have to lean forward to see the top traffic lights. I'm hoping the Corolla Cross fits better in this regard.

How are you liking your Cross these days? I am only 6', but much leg than torso. I am seriously looking at the Cross, but can't find one to test drive. Right now I have a Camry rental, and am having a bit of a hard time with my sight line. Any thoughts? Also, did you look at any other cars, cuvs, suvs etc prior to the Cross? Thank you!

Just an idea, but when the Cross first started making an appearance here, I was able to sit in one that had been sold before the buyer came to pick his up. Maybe you could make a similar arrangement with a local dealer. Of course, you could never drive one someone had bought, but you could see how well you fit in one.

I will find out on Friday, picking up my daughters Corolla Cross. Me: 6' 5". From what I have seen across a multitude of youtube reviews, you'll be able to adjust the drivers seat to be comfortable - but - the back seat will have very poor leg room.
How is it going with the Cross? I just decided to buy one and will pick it up tomorrow!! Holy smokes, I have only sat in one. I just need a car asap. UGHhhh

It's going great, really like it. Found it easy to get a comfortable seating position. Power is adequate, not going to win any races. CVT is a bit rubbery feeling but really not bad. Economy seems good, seen near 40mpg at constant 65mph highway speed on level ground. Averaging around 32mpg with mixed city driving. No chance to evaluate the AWD, but as it is mechanical and can send 50% to the rear, it should be very good. Very happy for the money (MSRP - $500 Costco - $500 graduate - $500 Toyota Cash / TFS financing). Paid around $24K OTD for L AWD with a few options like floor mats. No dealer BS such as vin etching, rustpoofing, paint protection, . . .

Thank you more than you know!! I went ahead, and am in the process of buying a Cross! I will pick it up tomorrow!! Tbh, I feel sort of "ill" over it. I am not used to car payments!! I'll keep you posted!
