The Inside

You might be surprised at how accommodating the Miata's two-seat cabin is for taller occupants. I stand 6 feet 1 inch tall and was able to get comfortable in the driver's seat. Someone even a little bit taller might be able to, as well.

With the top up, I had a little headroom to spare, but one editor said his hair was constantly brushing against it. There's also a large hump in the passenger footwell, which will be in the way for some people.

As you might expect, the interior is short on storage. There's a modestly sized glove box, a lockable storage bin between the seats and small mesh door pockets.
