I'm currently in a 2018 SI Coupe, which came with a sunroof. My headroom is *exactly* enough, but I've found myself wondering how much headroom the other Civic models without sunroofs have.

Has anyone been in a 10th gen both with and without a sunroof to know how much headroom you gain/lose?

I went from a sport sedan (no sunroof) to an ex hatch (with sunroof), there’s a difference, but not enough to complain about. I’m about 6’ y’all for reference.

I’ll agree I sat in a non sunroof civic there a little more room but I’ll sacrifice the room for a sunroof which I have on the EX-T coupe I’m also 6’5”

I'm 5"6" and I have a civic without a sunroof. I got my seat all the way to the ground and I have tons of headroom. I had a friend sit in the back of the car whose 6'2' and since its a coupe his head didn't clear the roof when he sat all the way back.

I'd say an inch to 1.5" more without sunroof. It really depends on how you like your driving position - I like a more upright position and I'm 6'2", so I prefer the sunroof-less Sport.

I have my seat all the way down and back and slightly tilted back I have about a finger thickness from my head to the head liner yes if the car didn’t have a sunroof I’d have more headroom at 6’5” I couldn’t sit in the back seat or being comfortable in the back seat even a sedan. I owned a 2004 Tiburon GT with sunroof my head touched the head liner I have more room in my civic than any car I’ve owned

Sounds like you and I are pretty similar then. I'm 6'2", but mostly torso. I have to keep my seat pretty upright to reach the wheel, and my hair constantly brushes the roof of my SI. An extra 1-1.5 inches would certainly make things less irritating for my daily driving... lol

Thanks!

I wanted a power seat in order to get my back comfy, but they package it with the sunroof which squishes me down. Makes it difficult to get things adjusted just right. Wish they wouldn't package stuff like that. I pay more for less room.
Grumble, grumble.
