Which small cars are suitable for taller people?

I was made redundant a couple of years ago and since have been driving my wife's Micra, about which I won't have a bad word said. My only problem with buying another Micra is that I am 6 feet 2 inches tall. Is there anything in the Micra price range that you could recommend with more driver's legroom?

I drove with a bloke who is 6 feet 8 inches tall about six weeks ago and he told me he could drive his mother's Yaris. The chairman of the Tall Persons Society, who is over 7 feet tall, can drive a Polo, and the Citroen C2 Picasso is very good indeed for tall people, as shown here: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/citroen/citroen-c3...o
