Wait, maybe i saw them and didn't know it. Oh nevermind.
i think you might like something like a Mazda Miata.

A lot of people who generally do not like cars, just love that car !

I just saw what you want me to like. I think I will be able to get one whole leg inside the car. Then what? Press the horn? He he he!

No I like big comfy cars, thank you.

well, then it's the Innova for you !

Do remember if it's small it would grow on you. If it were larger then it would be fighting for space.

and speaking of large frames I have seen Jeremy Clarkson and his british lard a** fit into the Miata quite comfortably.

lol@iraghava...

just checked up on the Miata leg room and general interior dimensions compared to a BMW 760I...


Front Legroom (in.) 43.1(Miata) 41.3(760I)

Front Shoulder (in.) 53.2(Miata) 59.3(760I)

Front Headroom (in.) 37.4(Miata) 39.2(760I)


So legs are comfortable while head & shoulders are closer to your partner....what more could any man want ??
