Top 10 SUVs for Taller Drivers for 2010

From Edmunds.com

It's hard to get comfortable in the driver seat if your head is squashed against the headliner and your knees are up beneath your chin. Naturally, taller drivers are the ones who are most afflicted with this problem; for many of these folks, driver space can play a profound part in determining whether a vehicle is a match for their needs.

Just for them, we've put together a list of the 10 SUVs with the most driver and front-passenger space for 2010. Our rankings are based on an average of head-, hip- and legroom, and all measurements are in inches. Each model was only allowed one appearance on the list.

Of course, your best bet in determining whether an SUV is a comfortable fit is to take it out for a test-drive. Still, this list could prove helpful as you narrow your choices. One final point to remember, if you're a sunroof fan: Sunroofs can serve to reduce headroom. If maximum headroom is important to you, it's best to skip this option.
