Interior dimensions.

Tall drivers certainly need to carefully check out car interior dimensions to derive pleasure from driving a 2011 Kia Sorento, as lack of head room leads to unnatural positioning in the seat. Enough shoulder room keeps the driver and his passenger from elbowing each other. The hip room roughly determines the width of the seats and the leg room measurement signals about the comfort for your legs. All these interior dimensions are calculated separately for the front, rear and the third row of seats and make up the passenger volume.
