For tall drivers, there's one feature whose impact can color the entire driving experience: front passenger space, comprising front headroom, legroom and hiproom. Without enough front headroom, your noggin will become uncomfortably familiar with your vehicle's headliner. And a front legroom deficiency will translate into an awkward seating position for drivers with longer limbs.

With this in mind, the picks below are the 10 best sedans for tall drivers for 2014. Each vehicle's ranking is based on front passenger space (an average of front headroom, hiproom and legroom), and all measurements are in inches.

While headroom, hiproom and legroom are available from manufacturers for most models, in a few cases, there's only partial data available. As you'd expect, our list includes only those models that present all the measurements that we used to determine our rankings.

Of course, numbers present only a partial picture. The best way to find out if a vehicle accommodates your physique is to take it for a test-drive, but you can use this list to winnow your choices as you decide which models to consider.

Finally, keep in mind that a sunroof slashes inches from front headroom. Consider foregoing this feature if your height tends to keep you within grazing distance of a car's headliner.

    Are there no tall Europeans? At 6'4" and a 36" inseam, I wish there were better choices.

    Best buy a Scandinavian car - Norwegians and Dutch are the tallest men in the world. The Dutch seem to like the Mitsubishi Outlander. The Renault Clio leads in sedans, but it's a subcompact, and probably leads because of its mpg and low cost. Closest platform relation for the US would be the Nissan Cube.
