Default Legroom

I am 6'6'' tall and my C5 Convertible fits great. I was very sad to see that the legroom in the C6 was cut (about 4-5"?) and it kept me from being able to shift comfortably. Anyone know how the C7 is in the legroom department?

I found the C5 dimensions on Motor Trend. Glad to see they agree with yours.

While "height" is not the determining factor with the C7, torso length vs. leg length will matter.

Those with a long torso will find the C7 more comfortable than those with height and long legs.

The C7 has slightly less leg room and lost almost two inches to the seat travel of the C6. There is less room in the space in front of the gas tanks at the base of the spaceframe.

Depending upon your body style, you might feel too cramped.
