How tall can you be and still fit?

I'm 6'3" and my wife (5'4") loves the Mini but I'm afraid I won't fit into it. Any tall people out there have one?

i am 6'5 and i can fit into one fine. the length is not a problem nor is height. but the width is a little narrow. i can drive it or ride in it fine but a smaller person would be a lot better off. i hope this helps

My sister has a Mini S and she let me drive it. I'm 6 foot 7 and I had no trouble at all.
