Some small cars with roomy interiors include the Mini Cooper, Nissan Versa, Honda Fit, Mazda5 and Hyundai Elantra Sedan, according to Auto Trader. Of these, the Mini Cooper, Honda Fit and Nissan Versa are true small coupes, while the other two are more sedan-like in appearance.
According to the reviews by Auto Trader, the Mini Cooper offers spacious accommodations particularly for those with long legs. Drivers up to 6 feet 7 inches tall can fit in the front seats of the Mini Cooper. The Nissan Versa is lauded as the king of small vehicles with roomy interior space in every direction. It has 39.8 inches of headroom, and its leg room is a good 3 inches higher than the closest competitor in its class. The Versa also has tall doors and leads its class in cargo room with the rear seats folded down.
The Honda Fit has a tall cabin that provides plenty of headroom in the front and back of the vehicle. With rear seats folded down, the Fit has 57.3 cubic feet of cargo space. The Hyundai Elantra Sedan is billed as a compact sedan, but it has enough interior room for the EPA to list it as a midsize car. The front seats have plenty of head and leg room, and the rear seats also have room for long legs. The Mazda5 is a crossover vehicle with a tall roof for head room and sliding doors for ease of entrance.
