Driver's interior room

Hey there, I'm new to these forums.

Obviously no one knows for sure, but based on the current 1 series, do you think its possible for a taller person to fit in this car. I'm 6'3" with longish legs. I fit great in the 3 series (excessive amounts of room), but the 5 series' steering wheel column gets in the way somewhat.

I don't expect to be able to use the backseat much at all (it'll make a good place to store things though! :biggrin but based on the current 1 series hatch, do any of you think I have a chance of fitting in the 1 series coupe?

I think you'll be okay. I remember reading somewhere about someone who did a testdrive at 6'2ish and he felt fine. :thumbup:

My ~190cm tall friend owns a 1 series hatch but I'm not sure if he has had any height related issues with it. But you don't want to sit behind him in the back seat

As long as you're not under the illusion that someone could sit behind you, you'll have no trouble at all. If the MINI is good for 6'3" drivers, the 1 will be too.
