    Hello everyone. Last summer almost each evening I cycled home I would pass what I now know was a silver Daihatsu Copen. I had never seen anything quite like it and that is when I knew that one day I had to own my own Copen!

    I had hoped to meet the owner but it never happened. I would very much like to see if I would fit in the car as I'm 6ft tall.

    I have a friend who is 6ft tall, and I drove to Japfest silverstone with him. He just barely fit inside and he had to slouch a bit to fit 'comfortably'
    But with the roof off then there is no problem :D

    I am about the same size and I fit well, but could not get any taller or wider :D

    Hi, I have heard this from a AFR0N1. My next quest is to see if I can find one near me that I can sit in

    Hi Brian

    I'm 6 foot 1 inch and I've owned my Copen for 14 years. Still fit in with no probs even though I am rather larger now!!

    I say go for it!

    It's always a good idea to have a sit inside of any car you think of buying in the future, because you can check for things like
    -do you like the driving position
    -is there enough adjustment in the seat/steering wheel for you
    -do you like the feel of the pedals/shifter etc

    Hey, Brian. I am 5 11.5 and don't need to have the driver seat all the way back. It's snug but more than enough space.

    5’6” so cant help at all. Other than it’s the easiest car to get in and out of. And I tried MX5,F Type and Boxster. My 2010 MX5 has height adjustable drivers seat but can’t get my creaking bones in the other side.

    Hello everyone. I'm 185 cm tall and our family has Copen. I sit in it with the roof closed. space under the roof is almost not left. but there is enough room.

    LOL! So even copen owners have a dark side.

    Don't turn to the dark side!

    @Brian.J

    Lol. No offence to you. I think you’re thread was hijacked by a spammer and after giving them both barrels and reporting them as spam, you’re just seeing the bits in between.

    Anyway, you’re in Essex so I’d categorise you as plonker.

    Regards,

    Blunt Northern Bastard.
