How long is a Mazda RX-8?

I’m thinking of buying a Mazda RX-8 from a friend because it's in good condition and the price is super reasonable. The one thing I’m concerned about is the car’s length because I have a seriously tiny driveway that I have to share with my downstairs neighbor.

It’s good to know a car’s length before you buy it—just to be on the safe side! A Mazda RX-8 is 175.6 inches long.
Mazda produced the RX-8 from 2003 to 2012 and classified it as a sports car. It has a coupe body style and a cute little spoiler.
Typically, a car that measures between 161 and 187 inches is viewed as a compact car. And if you’ve ever tried to fit into a tight parking space, you’ll know that maneuvering is easier when you’re behind the wheel of a small vehicle.
