Older cars with lower pedals

    Current car (02 Mondeo) has nice low pedals which suits herself well.

    Which older petrol cars (say 10/11/12/13) would have a similarly low (as in close to the floor) or floor mounted accelerator pedal ?

    I know the Skoda Octavia has floor mounted pedals but are very hard to find in petrol.

    Thanks in advance !

    Would she not get used to the pedals after a week no matter how low/high they are located? There are more important factors to consider when buying a car

    Hasn't proven to be the case previously. Naturally there are other factors but with such a wide selection of cars to choose from it's worth taking in to consideration.

    Some of the VW Passat models seem to have floor mounted accelerators.

    A e39 BMW I had one time had a floor mounted accelerator pedal which I hated was glad when I got back to the normal car type of pedal.
