We know he wouldn't be caught driving one but... can Shaquille O'Neal even fit in a Buick LaCrosse?
Dressed in a Shaq-spec sweater vest, the 320-pound [7' tall Kris] Thomas backed into the LaCrosse with the driver’s seat in its rearmost position and the backrest reclined about 30 degrees. Ducking under the roof, he planted his butt in the seat and swung his legs beneath the steering wheel. And damn it, he fit. Sure, his knees were knocking up against the wheel, but he tells us that’s a common problem. Buick lists the front head- and legroom of the LaCrosse at 38.0 and 41.7 inches, respectively, on par with other mid-size luxury sedans that feel far less airy. That discrepancy owes to the malleable SAE procedures by which interior measurements are derived. They leave room for interpretation, meaning that results from one manufacturer to another—indeed, results within the same automaker’s lineup—don’t always compare directly.
