It's about four times as long as a Beetle (Volkswagen).
In other words, 16 meters is 3.9230 times the length of a Beetle (Volkswagen), and the length of a Beetle (Volkswagen) is 0.25490 times that amount.(1964 model) (a.k.a. Volkswagen 1200, a.k.a. Käfer)
A 1964 Volkswagen Beetle measures 4.079 m. As the longest continuously-produced automobile design — in production for 75 years between 1938 and 2003 — the Beetle was voted the most fourth-most influential car of the twentieth century by the Global Automotive Elections Foundation.
It's about one-fourth as long as The Wingspan of a 747.
In other words, 16 meters is 0.2340 times the length of The Wingspan of a 747, and the length of The Wingspan of a 747 is 4.270 times that amount.(a.k.a. Boeing 747, a.k.a. Jumbo Jet, a.k.a. Queen of the Skies) (for Boeing 747-8 series)

It's about one-fifth as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree).
In other words, 16 meters is 0.210 times the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree), and the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 4.80 times that amount.(a.k.a. Sequoiadendron giganteum, a.k.a. Sierra redwood, a.k.a. Wellingtonia)
Giant Sequoias of the Giant Sequoia National Monument located in Sierra Nevada, near Visalia, California can grow to heights of 76 m. The wood from the Giant Sequoias is often brittle and prone to shattering when such trees are felled, and as a result the trees logged in the late nineteenth century were often usable only as shingles or matchsticks.
It's about one-fifth as tall as The Statue of Liberty.
In other words, 16 meters is 0.17210 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 5.8110 times that amount.(a.k.a. "Liberty Enlightening the World," a.k.a. La Liberté Éclairant le Monde) (Liberty Island, New York City, New York) (pedestal base to torch peak)
The Statue of Liberty reaches 92.99 m including the pedestal. The statue was designed using an optical trick known as "forced perspective" to make the statue appear proportionally correct when viewed from its base and is, in actuality, disproportionately large at the top.
It's about one-fifth as tall as Big Ben.
In other words, 16 meters is 0.170 times the height of Big Ben, and the height of Big Ben is 5.90 times that amount.(officially the clock tower of Palace of Westminster, a.k.a. Houses of Parliament) (London, England)

It's about one-fifth as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch.
In other words, 16 meters is 0.1520 times the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch, and the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 6.580 times that amount.(a.k.a. Football Field, a.k.a. Soccer Field) (field length, a.k.a. touchline distance)
According to the Laws of the Game, a football pitch should measure between 90m and 120m (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 105 meters, and later converted to the metric units used today). The goal markess were defined as part of the pitch by the original rules of the game in the late 16th century, but it was not until the mid 19th century that the crossbar and the net were added
It's about one-tenth as long as a Football field.
In other words, 16 meters is 0.1458150 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 6.858010 times that amount.(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 109.7280 meters from end to end. Because each team's goalpost is located at the far end of the scoring area (end zone), a ball on a scoring play may need to travel as many as 9.1440 meters farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it.
