The Daily Drive blog over at ConsumerGuide.com published an article earlier this month featuring their choices of the 3 best cars for really big guys. The article, written by Tom Appel (a bigger gent himself) talks about the trouble spots that people of size can run into when dealing with smaller cars, such as seat belt length and lack of belly room, and offers examples of vehicles that personify these issues.  If any of those cars are on your potential shopping list, you’ll certainly want to give them further consideration based on his tips.

A car not featured in the article itself gets some love from commenters: the Fiat 500. A few bigger guys there are recommending it for being surprisingly roomy. Read the full article at the link above. At the least, it offers good recommendations for anyone considering a new car purchase.
