Top 10 Sedans for Taller Drivers for 2010

From Edmunds.com

If you're a taller driver shopping for a new sedan, you know that certain interior dimensions can make or break your relationship with a vehicle. Generous legroom means greater comfort for your long limbs, and ample headroom ensures that there's space for your noggin. Since taller folks often have wider builds, hiproom is also important — more is better, and too little can result in a tight squeeze.

With taller drivers in mind, we've compiled a list of the 10 sedans 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. The best way to see if a vehicle suits your frame is to take it for a test-drive; still, this list could help you winnow your options.

One thing to keep in mind: A sunroof is not a tall driver's friend. You may want to avoid this option on your vehicle, since it can reduce headroom.
