My roommate has a Fiat 500 non Abarth. He's a few inches shorter than I am but seems to fit fine. I still worry about if I'd actually fit in one of them comfortably enough...
we rented one last labor day (we seem to talk about my rental cars a lot. I'll be sure to keep you posted about my Memorial Day rental). Anyways, I loved it. I loved it in the first 5 minutes and I loved it after 4 days. For such a small car, we thought it was surprisingly spacious. Cockpit was totally fine, and the back was suitable. My 6'2" 240lb father in law climbed in the back seats for a small drive around the beach town we were in, and he was generally fine (probably not for 3+ hours back there, but you get my drift). We had luggage and stopped at a Wegmans to load up on groceries for our trip back, no space issues. If you ever have the chance to drive it, give it a go. I've rented lots of crappy little cars, and this was way more fun and way more stable at high speeds than anything else I've rented (excluding the Ferrari while in France).
