I'm a tall driver and need a car with space for rear facing baby seat - what would you recommend?

We are looking for a car that can accommodate a tall driver (6ft4) and also a rear facing baby seat to fit in behind the drivers seat. We live in London and use our car for day to day tasks so preferably a small car but will also need something for visiting family up north. We were thinking about a high spec Nissan Note 2016 petrol due to reported good rear legroom and modern gadgets, or a Citroen C4 SpaceTourer due to the rear seats being able to move - although would prefer manual controls for fan etc.We did think about the Ford C-Max but are concerned about the ecoboost engine- budget up to maximum of £15K.

The Citroen C4 SpaceTourer is a sensible option as it provides excellent interior space for a modest footprint, but we would also suggest looking at cars like the Honda Jazz, BMW 2 Series Active Tourer and Volkswagen Touran, which may also suit your needs.
