Best cars for short people: headrest issue

Drivers of shorter stature face many challenges when shopping for a car and many great articles are written on the subject. 

When it comes to seat comfort, however, persons of short stature are disproportionately disadvantaged from vehicle design specifications for headrests.  As discussed in an earlier blog, 16% of the population experience discomfort from headrest angles that push their head too far forward.

This 16% of the population is comprised predominantly of persons of short stature, and also those of any height with straighter posture than average.  

Car seat discomfort due to headrest angles are particularly problematic for:

  • persons of short stature
  • hence, females 
  • and anyone with straighter posture

Best cars for this category of people, are those with adjustable tilt headrest if headrest comfort is an issue.

If the car you like doesn't have this adjustable tilt headrest, then Giraffe Cushion can solve the problem since its engineered design makes it act like a headrest-tilt adjustment.

Our back cushion, can open up many options for shorter stature persons shopping for a vehicle.
