Not as tall as you (only 6'3") but before I purchased my car I went to dealership and sat in & drove a demo. I would suggest you do the same... this will let you know if you're comfortable in the Gen X Accord.

I second Fire00d's emotion. I'm 6'3" inches, and I am quite comfortable in it. You have to sit in one. I will say the Touring has leather padding on the center console, in the event that is here you rest your knee. It's not the most effective little item, but it is something. Good luck with your search!

The Accord, although in the "midsized" category of cars, could technically be considered a large/full sized car. (My quick Googling shows Mid size being between 110-119.9 cu. ft.; Large being greater than 120 cu. ft.) 10th Gen Accord is right on the 120 cu. ft. line depending on trim.

I'm 6 foot 2 in, 230 lbs and fit with plenty of room to spare. The car is very spacious on the inside. But as other said, go sit in one to be sure.

I’m 6’4” and I fit fine but the center console has so getting use too. My knee hits it while using the accelerator but after a while I don’t even notice anymore! The back seat has plenty of legroom. Love everything about my 2018 Accord EXL 2.0T.

Para, I'm also 6'7" and own the 2018 Accord Touring edition. While the seats are definitely an improvement over the prior year models, I still wish I had an extra inch or two of headroom. This is mostly an issue due to the reduced headroom associated with having the sun/moon roof. If you actually go with the Sport edition which I don't believe has the sunroof you'll probably have enough headroom as I think it has at least an inch or two more. Legroom and so on hasn't been an issue for me.

The Accord Sport edition does indeed come with a sunroof. Not sure about past years, though.

Touring comes standard with a 2.0T, which is what we are talking about. Touring 1.5 does not exist.
The Touring 1.5 was available only in 2018 here in the US alongside the Touring 2.0T. The 1.5 version was dropped for the 2019 model year and it has only been offered with the 2.0T ever since.
