I only have the new plywood for the seat in right now, but I have over 3.5" of head room while sitting very upright, relax a bit and head room increases, getting in and out is not a problem at all! as a pasenger in a VW rabbit truck there is a bit more room, but the truck doesn't have tilt on the steering wheel, and the seat is very upright because it basicly rests agenst the rear window, so I've seen people who go as far as to extend the cab to give more leg room.
last spring when I first saw a citicar, one of the things I did was to sit in it for a while, get in and out a few times, making sure that I could stand owning one incase I found a good deal without a chance to see it befor buying it.
