How does the 2010 Ford Taurus compare with its predecessor?
With a quick glance, it’s easy to see that the Taurus’s styling has changed dramatically for 2010. As a result, many important dimensions have been altered. The new Taurus is longer and wider than the 2009 version, offers a wider track for improved handling, and delivers an extra half inch of front leg room; rear hip room has been extended by two inches, as well. Those are the positives. Categorized under the “cons” heading for 2010 are losses in front and rear head room, three fewer inches of rear leg room, a slightly smaller trunk, and a curb weight that has ballooned by roughly 300 pounds.
