Fourth-best car for tall drivers: Kia Optima
Average front-seat dimension:
46.7 inches

This $21,350 midsized sedan carries the lowest base price on Edmunds' top-five list, but still offers tall drivers plenty of front-seat space: 40 inches of headroom, 45.5 inches of legroom and 54.7 inches of hiproom.

Beyond a roomy interior, Clarke says the Optima features "an attractive cabin and an eye-catching exterior . It's a really handsome car."

The model also boasts great acceleration regardless of whether you choose the base 200-horsepower four-cylinder engine or an optional 274-horsepower turbocharged version. Other pluses include a long list of standard features, as well as Kia's industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
