Here are three luxury sedans that list more front legroom than the 41.4 inches in your 2011 Audi A8L: the Hyundai Genesis (sedan, not the coupe), 44.3 inches; Infiniti M, 44.0 inches; and the Lexus LS 460, 43.7 inches.

There are certainly others, so we encourage you to add to the list by using the Cars.com Vehicle Recommender. This handy tool allows you to select cars by a price range, brand, engine type, drive wheels, and major comfort and convenience features to find the ones best suited to your desires. Then you can find out how much front legroom these cars have by scrolling the specifications for individual models in the Cars.com Research section.

Your size (or at least your inseam length) obviously is a big concern, so we also encourage you to check out the cars on your list in person early in the process to find out how well you fit. All manufacturers are supposed to use the same measuring points for calculating interior dimensions, but what looks great on paper may not be so great in the person. When legroom is a priority, you need to know for sure before you buy.

Luxury cars should come with a steering column that telescopes as well as tilts, so be sure to check that out as well. A car that gives you generous legroom should also allow you to adjust the steering wheel to a comfortable reach. Another feature you should ask about is a driver’s seat that automatically slides rearward when you turn off the ignition (and slides forward when you turn it on), making it easier to swing your legs in and out.
