Interesting observation, PeterC.

You and I are about the same size, and I also have problems "fitting" in many cars - primarily because I much prefer to drive sitting up relatively straight. Since I wear trifocals, it just hurts my neck and back to recline much and still be able to see the road through the top optic in my glasses.

I'm more interested in "comfortable" than I used to be, especially related to ingress/egress. It sucks to get old but it beats the alternative.
