I didn't notice the headroom difference in the two. But in how the interior is designed on the Aurora vs the Bonne; the cabin of the Bonne does seem much more open. However I do like the tight, cozy, 'secure' feeling of the Aurora cabin. The 'Rora is more of a 'cockpit.'

I found my SSEi (when I had it) to be far larger inside then the Aurora. There is far less headroom in the Aurora then the 92-95 Bonneville. 00+, I dunno...I've not been in one for long enough to compare.

When we had the SSEi, Angie called it our little car.
i dont mean just size, i mean how it feels to drive, turning raidus, handling, i do'nt know, JMO

The Aurora is definetly a more stable car, size helps some, but it is a newer chassis. Remember the H body debuted in 87, and only recieved some small changes along the way, no major revisions. It is somewhat flexy IMO.

Ya, i've had Auroras park next to me before, the 95-99 and they are quite large in comparison. I'm actually quite supprised how not so big my car is. Heck I parked next to a new Saturn Aura the other day and the darned thing is as long as my car.
