Americans inherently want more room. When the early U.S. states and territories were getting crowded in the 1800s, people headed west, right?
And, that same desire for personal space applies when we're out and about driving or just going along for the ride.
Inspired by one of our @Chrysler Twitter followers*, we put together a chart to compare the passenger space of our more roomier SUVs, crossovers and minivans. We even tossed in the Fiat 500, which tacks up pretty well in driver's space compared to its bigger cousins, doesn't it?
*Okay, even though our Twitter follower was poking a little fun, the tongue-in-cheek question was still inspirational, and appreciated.
