Top 10 Sedans With the Most Front-Passenger Room for 2012


If you're a driver who's taller and/or wider than average, you know that there are certain things you need to consider when you're evaluating vehicles for purchase. Taller drivers need to make sure they choose models that offer adequate headroom and legroom, since deficiencies in these areas can result in a cramped and uncomfortable driving experience. Wider drivers need to make sure that the models they're considering have enough shoulder and hiproom to accommodate their girth.

If you're one of these drivers, the list below can serve as a resource; it shows the 10 sedans with the most driver and front-passenger space for 2012. Each vehicle's ranking is based on an average of head, hip- and legroom, and all measurements are in inches. Bear in mind, though, that numbers don't always present a complete picture. The best way to find out if a vehicle is a match for your physique is to take it for a test-drive, but you can use this list to help guide you as you decide which models to consider.

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