EP3 - Head Room ?

I'm interested in getting an EP3 Hatch (is the hatch the EP3 part ?) Anyway, there are none around here for me to test fit into.

I'm tall from the waist up, 6' with 30" legs. In most cars, my head will rub a little bit.

I do fit in an RSX-S with OEM leather seats with no issues. Are they close to the same size?

I just want one for a daily driver - do not wish to modify it much.

SCCA Solo and time attack. I NEED A SPONSOR

94 Miata, C, SCCA STR/Time attack. All mods allowed by SCCA, Several mods to nut behind wheel.

12 Jeep GC, Hemi, 4x4 with just about most of the good stuff

You're fine I guess depending on torso length. I'm 6'2" and have plenty of room in an EP3 having driven several of them.
