While checking out the mags at a local bookstore I ran across a Top Gear magazine from the TV show guys. There was a short blurp about the new V. I am still eagerly looking for pricing as I am seriously torn between a STS or CTS. Anyone here in the 6'4 and over group with a CTS?

I am 6'2 with a gen 1 V. I wouldn't want to be any taller with the sunroof option. I sat in a new cts @ the dealership the other day and was fine.

Agreed. I thought the CTS Gen2 had more legroom than the Gen1. I owned a V1 and only sat in a Gen2 CTS, but the CTS definitely had more leg room and head room.

I think either car you will have to go without the sunroof option. My Bro in law is 6'4 and his head hits the sunroof buldge inside my STS-V

crap, not what I wanted to hear! The STS is my first option simply because of availability, I am guessing the CTS is a smaller car?

I am currently driving a loaner STS and it may have a slight amount more headroom than my V. It has the sunroof as well.

Funny you say that...a co-worker of mine has a new STS and when he jumped into my V the first thing he mentioned was that he had more head room. He's a big guy.

Seat position maybe?
