2016 Midsize SUVs for Tall Drivers
Small SUVs might seem little else than a compact sedan with a fifth door. Full-size SUVs can be more car than your really need. Midsize SUVs are right in the middle, giving you both a decent amount of cargo space and family space.
If you’re a tall driver and interested in the midsize SUV segment, these interior dimensions might help you put together a more informed shopping list.
Midsize SUV Leg Room
The 2016 Nissan Pathfinder leads this group of vehicles in terms of leg room with 84 inches, closely followed by the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Ford Edge. The Toyota 4Runner and Dodge Journey have the least amount of leg room of vehicles on this list.
Midsize SUV Head Room
Midsize SUV Hip Room
The Honda Pilot has by far the most head room of this segment. The Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander also have over 57 inches of hip room. Vehicles with the least amount of hip room are the Dodge Journey and the Nissan Murano.
The Big Picture
To give you a more complete picture, I’ve put all of these interior dimensions into one chart and added in the MSRP.
In terms of spaciousness, the vehicle that checks all of the boxes on this list is the Nissan Pathfinder.
The Kia Sorento is a leader in leg room and hip room, and only the Dodge Journey has a lower base MSRP. While a little more expensive, the Toyota Highlander and Ford Explorer are also ahead of the pack in a couple of measurement categories.
