    Im 6'4" and 220 and I fit fine. Im not sure how that translates with 50 more pounds sitting 2 inches lower though. my friend is about 270 and 6'3" and did not complain about the fit, it wasnt roomy by any means but he could drive the car fine and didnt say anything about it not being big enough. ...Of course he also used to weigh 290 and drive a toyota paseo.

    Thumbs up Not only big, but...

    I'm not only big , (6'2" 250 , I was 280 when I bought the WRX , thank you and rest in peace DR. Atkins!) but I am even contemplating a driver seat change out, and that might tighten things up a bit.I know I don't need one but they look so damn good!The WRX is fine for the larger frame , its JDM counterpart comes with nicer narrower seats , so they thought of us when they made it!
    All kidding aside the WRX is the most comfortable I have been in a vehicle and that includes large trucks and SUV's

    The '04 seats are much wider than the '02-'03, so you should definitely go try out an '04 and see how that feels.

    I'm about the same size as you and it fits great, better than any other Japanese car I have tried. I have let some tall friends (6'5", 6'6", 6'7") try it and they were surprised how well they fit. You have to test drive it to be sure, but I think you will fit no problem.

    I'm 6'3" and 225lbs. The '03 seats fit me pretty good...but its just at the edge of comfort. If I were any bigger, or the seat was any smaller, then it would suck. You can always cut the metal support rods in the seat to make the bottom wider too.

    Head room should be fine. But a lot of bigger guys I know ( my bro is 6'1 250) like the sport seats, but wouldnt mind something less confining on long drives. Hell, Im 170 and feel much the same way; My wife's Tundra is the "road trip vehicle". Its just the sport oriented seats(shrugs)

    Long drives

    I gotta say, the long drives for me get the thighs sore! I'm about 5' 11 and 250 --- I got them fat biking/weight lifting legs and the side bolsters dig right on into my thighs. Guess I gotta get like my grandmother and get a lace trimmed pillow to sit on!

    WRX for the big dogs

    I'm 6'2 at 250+ and I love the feel of the car.
    Good leg room, comfy seats.

    Heck, on a nice day I roll the windows down in the driveway, put on some Jazz and take a nap.
