Top 12 SUVs and Crossovers With the Most Front-Passenger Room for 2011


People often choose crossovers for the roomy cabins they offer, but the vehicles in this category obviously aren't all created equal, especially when it comes to front-passenger room. Drivers who are much taller or wider than average know that they need to focus on choices which are especially spacious in the front row.

If you're one of these drivers and you're currently shopping for a crossover or SUV, there's no substitute for actually sitting in the vehicle and seeing how it suits your frame. Still, this list of the 12 models (the count exceeds our typical 10 due to ties) with the most front-passenger room may help you narrow your list of candidates. We ranked each vehicle based on an average of head-, hip- and legroom, and all measurements shown are in inches.

One more thing: Taller drivers who worry about regularly head-butting the roof may want to think twice about getting a sunroof, since this feature often shaves inches off headroom.
