What’s the best first car for a tall man? He’s 6'8" and needs a lot of legroom.

Difficult one - assuming he's a young driver, anything particularly big will be expensive to insure. We'd recommend trying an insurance comparison website and searching for quotes for a wide variety of cars to see if there's anything surprisingly cheap. Try a Ford Fiesta or Honda Jazz as well as bigger cars like the Volkswagen Golf.
