Celica Space?

I'm 6 feet tall and I've heard there are some issues with celica's being a little cramped. I was wondering if anyone as tall or taller than me has had any problems with the size of the celica and if they're still able to enjoy driving it?

The only time one so tall could have trouble fitting in the celica is if that person is sitting in the back seat. Toyota has designed the seats in the celica to be mounted very low to allow someone tall to drive it.

exactly right, the seats are very low profile and are in a perfect driving position, you should be fine, as they adjust 6 ways (gt)

We don't have backseats. We have "kiddy pods". If you're under 5' tall, the back fits you like a glove. grin

I'm 6'1" and I've never had problems. I find the seating in my celica very comfortable. I'm in no rush to swap out for racing seats, I love the stock seats. thumbsup

me too, except no one can fit behind me... too bad cause the celicas my primary car, and it sucks with tall high schoolers, you can only fit two practically...the back seat becomes an extension of the trunk
