Maybe you have genetics that have graced you with the towering stature of Shaquille O'Neal. Maybe you have a zest for cuisine, fine or otherwise, that has imbued you with the imposing heft of Pavarotti. Or maybe, like most people, you just like having lots of personal space as you pilot your ride. Whatever the case, front passenger room will be a concern as you shop for your new sedan.

With your preferences in mind, we've put together a list of the 10 sedans with the most driver and front-passenger space for 2008, based on available head-, hip- and legroom.
