Top 10 Best Cars for Tall Drivers for 2013


Certain features are a godsend for tall drivers. A tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, for example, can help you find a comfortable driving position. A height-adjustable seat can serve the same function.

 

However, the one feature that trumps all others for many tall drivers is front passenger space: front headroom, legroom and hiproom. If a car comes up short in front headroom, your pate will likely spend time bumping into the headliner. And a front-legroom deficiency could result in an uncomfortable driving experience for those with longer limbs.

 

With all this in mind, here are the 10 best sedans for tall drivers for 2013. Each vehicle's ranking is based on front passenger space (an average of front headroom, hiproom and legroom). All measurements are in inches.

 

Remember that numbers don't tell the whole story. The best way to find out if a vehicle suits your frame is to take it for a test-drive, but you can use this list to guide you as you decide which models to consider.

 

Finally, keep in mind that the sunroof is no friend to the tall driver. This feature slashes headroom, so consider skipping it if your height often leads to close calls with a car's headliner.
