the other cars you test drove. I did. The SS had the most space for the driver and front passenger. I test drove the C230K. It was soo tight. That is one reason I didn't buy it. The TSX was the same also. I was driving my Dad's PT Cruiser around . God, that car is awful. I had no room. I mean the door was blocking any movement you wanted to make on your leftside. My head also rubs against the headliner. I had more room in my GTI then most of the sport sedans I test drove.
