    I had plenty of headroom at 6'1" in height, so I figured she would be ok. Well yesterday she had to drive the mirage for the first time, and nope, her head was touching the roof no matter what she did with the seat controls. She was definitely uncomfortable.

    The reason I think is a combination of posture (I am a "lay back a bit in the seat" type, wife is more of a "sit up perfectly straight" type) and female and male body types. The curves just work different and therefore you sit different. Not a big deal to us since she'll only have to use the mirage in very rare instances, but probably something to look out for in general.
    Doesn't the BE trim have the seat base height adjustment knob?

    Cruise control & 6-way adjustable driver's seat become standard for all trim levels in 2019.

    I'm about 6', & I sit very upright in my 2017 Mirage ES (no height adjustment) without issue. I still have a full head of hair, too!

    It does indeed as Mark said.

    And yeah, I suspect us guys have no trouble even up to 6'2". Women are different.

    Did you twist the knob to make sure the seat sunk to its lowest setting? Even sitting at a 90 angle my head wouldn't touch the ceiling and I'm 6'1".
