Fitting in a 145


I am going to look at a 145 Cloverleaf tomorrow and was wondering if I may be a little too big for it. I am 6ft2 but slim. I am sure its a bigger car than a Clio and I can fit just in this. Anyone else tall and Driving a 145?

No sorry, but let us know how you get on - I'm 6'1" and have always fancied a 145.

hey i'm 6'1" and relatively average, I don't have any problems driving my 145 although i don't know how much of that is down to subconsciously ignoring if i'm cramped or not! lol
but seriously the only thing i have a problem with is when it comes to putting the rear seats down, i have to move the drivers seat forward otherwise they don't lay flush and find it difficult to drive that far forward.

there is a mechanism for hightening/lowering the drivers seat which some have removed without too much hasle to make the position more comfortable for them. Being just 5'11" its not a problem for me

I'm 6'4" and even with the 145s high seat I still have plenty of headroom, and as for leg room I don't have the seat set all the way back. Once you get used to the feeling of sitting on the car rather than in it, it's really comffy and a great drive.

I'm 6'2", there's bags of headroom, legroom is OK although a bit legs splayed. Drove all the way down to the South of France in mine without any discomfort
