Top 10 Wagons and Hatchbacks With the Most Front-Passenger Room for 2012


The hatchback/wagon segment is known for offering many choices designed to cater to drivers seeking transportation that's both versatile and affordable. If you're a driver who's taller and/or wider than average, you'll find lots of picks in these segments to fit your frame, especially if you begin your search with the models listed below.

These 10 models are the hatchbacks and wagons with the most front-passenger room. Our rankings are based on an average of head-, hip- and legroom, and all measurements shown are in inches.

Remember, though, that while these measurements can be extremely helpful, the best way to see if a vehicle suits your physique is to actually spend some time sitting in the cabin. Take a test-drive before committing to a purchase.

Finally, if you're a taller driver, you might want to skip the sunroof, since this option can steal precious inches from your vehicle's headroom.
