    I haven't ridden in the new Optima, but my mother had one of the last generations. I've found that what fits one 6 footer may not be comfortable to another 6 footer. It depends on where the length falls. With my mother's Optima, I could ride in the backseat, but my head brushed the headliner. It wasn't as bad as her 2005 Spectra, but sort of irritating. However, a friend of the family was 6'1, but was more leg than torso. So while he had a good inch of clearance in the 2013 Optima for his head, his knees pushed up against the seatback in the backseat.

    And it has CLOTH instead of slick.cold/clammy/hot leather. I have had lots of cars with leather and lots with cloth and after 35 years of driving, I like cloth better. Here in CA I wear shorts all through the summer and leather sucks when one wears shorts.
