Which mercedes benz do you recommend for tall drivers?

Hi,

I am 6'10'' in height. I visited few Benz dealerships in Los Angeles area and not only that I don't fit in most of their sedans and SUVs, but their sales people are not sure of headroom statistics on the cars to recommend one. Which mercedes benz cars have the biggest amount of headroom, does anyone know?

Not sure if this is any help or not, but I bought my first Mercedes from a gentleman who was 6-7 or so. Former lineman. It was a w126. You mentioned trying out the sedans. Did this include the S-class?

I am 5-9 but with long legs and had poor legroom even in Hummer.
That said E class starting with W210 had greatly increased leg room and with seat adjustment I can still have good distance to the ceiling.
Then in Europe you don't have that much tall people, so I don't think Germans offer cars design for them.
Other than getting Superduty, or one of the 1980's American, I don't think it will be easy.
