I am thinking of buying a new car, I currently have a 2006 Toyota Camry. The most important thing to me is comfort. I am short 5' 2" , do you know an auto that has superior comfort in the drivers seat for short people. or one that you can get seat upgrades?

Patty Streeter,  at Nancy, Edmunds published an article on the top 10 best cars for short drivers based on best seating to fit your body in 2013 here is the list: 1. BMW 3 Series 2. Honda Accord 3. Honda CR-V 4. Kia Soul 5. Lexus LS 460 6. Mazda 3 7. Mercedes-Benz S-Class 8. Subaru Forester 9. Toyota Sienna 10. Volkswagen Passat

Georgia Brown, Director of Education at National Independent Automobile Dealers Association (NIADA) My daughter is 4'11" and drives a Honda Pilot, but she also drove my Honda Civic easily enough. I'd say just try the ones you like and buy the one that fits best. :)

Patricia J Roberts, Director Business Development  at, Inc. Given that there are several hundred models of vehicles offered in the USA marketplace, we all have lots of choices for those items that are important to us. So I would suggest that you visit the Internet and ask the question about "superior seat comfort". Some manufacturers are known for their seat comfort ie Buick. And most manufacturers build their product to the 97% percentile factor for height, weight, etc. So once you do your research I would also suggest that you take a test drive.
