Hi Wayno. I could have told you long ago you're not too big ... but I never received your note. Perhaps the spam filter was overreacting. I'm 6'2 and 200 lbs. Fit in with no problems. (I do have a cabrio.)

I'm 6'7" and my wife is 6'1". We both fit in our Passion Coupe and love it. I can even wear a hat in the car...

You WILL fit, my friend. I need not give you my size as others have already covered that aspect. What I do find lacking in space, however, is the space between the brake and accelerator pedals. When I wear sandals, which seem to have a wider sole than my regular shoes, I find the space is not adequate for free movement. So far it has not been a safety issue but it does give me some concern. The rest of the interior cabin space is incredibly large for such a small car.

Wow! Bob & Jan Parquet, you really grow 'em BIG! My hubby is 6' and 225. He actually pulls the seat forward a bit to drive it. All the way back is too far. Most people fit just fine. It's all a matter of personal preference.

I'm 6ft, 235lbs and find my cabrio is great. I would occasionally hit my head getting into my '99 C230, but I have plenty of room now.

At 5'10" and 240 lbs I have no space issues. In fact the seats provide great lateral support and are as confortable as my full size Montero. The reason I purchased a smart was for the ease of entry and amount of driver space.

I don't fit in Miatas, Camrys, Scion TCs, I hit my head on most minivans... it goes on and on. I'm 6'3" and 280lb... wait for it... wait for it!...
I FIT IN MY SMART!!! and with comfort may I add. So just go and test one out.. if by chance you feel you are too tall try the cloth seats and not the leather clad ones, they offer a little more head room.
