My 2004 audie convertable has all wheel drive and performs well in the snow of our New England winters. How well does the front wheel drive Mini perform in the snow?

My husband's 6'6 and 235 lbs. and he fits just fine. He has more room than in our Honda. However, when he puts the seat all the way back, there's no way anyone can sit behind him (no leg room).

My husband is 6'6 and 235 lbs. and he swears he has more head and leg room (when he puts the seat back) then my Honda did.
I bought my car new in Texas (faster & a better price) and we drove it home to Washington State. The odometer had nearly 4,000 miles from all the national parks we visited on the way home. I'm more than sure you'll be fine for two hours.
My new love's specs: 2006 Mini Cooper S, Hyper blue w/white top & bonnet stripes, chrome exterior & chrome interior, Premium/Sport/Convenience/& Cold Weather pkgs, black panther English leather interior, cockpit chrono pack, Harmon Kardon stereo, etc. I had a nice long road trip driving it home from out of state this September. We've got just over 6,000 miles on it so far (12/09/06)

It'll be very tight for the rear passengers--I wouldn't want to be in the back. Two hours is doable, but the rear seat passengers are going to be very cramped if they're adults, unless you and your friend up front cheat and move their seats up a few inches. Kids are fine (mine love to ride back there; I'm 6 feet even and it's not a problem for the kids--it is for adults though), but those rear seats really aren't good very good for adults.

The only car in which I fit comfortably is the MINI (without the premium package - i.e. moonroof - takes almost 2 inches off the headroom).

I am 6'-2" and 200 lbs. Would a sunroof leave enough headroom for me or would I have to lean the seat back, etc? And though I hear there is plenty of legroom, is it hard for a large tall driver to get in and out?

I have a 2006 Mini Cooper S with a sunroof. My husband's 6'6 and 235 lbs. and he fits just fine. He has more room than in the Honda we used to have. My husband does lean his seat back, but not as much as he had to in our Honda (that also had a sunroof). The best thing for you is to go sit in one and see for yourself.
