Why does Subaru score high with taller drivers?

Subaru's design offers taller drivers more room than other models. It uses a modular chassis and the new platform allowed Subaru to increase driver and passenger space in the new-generation Forester, Legacy, Outback, and Impreza. All new 2022 Subaru models ride on the Subaru Global Platform, providing more interior room than previous-generation models.
