Which vans have the most cab space and driver legroom?

I need to buy, rent or lease my first panel van. I'm 6'4" tall and nearly as wide. Which medium-sized, tall roof vans have the most cab space and driver legroom?

This is a tricky one. The best medium size vans are the Volkswagen Transporter T6 and Ford Transit Custom. But both have an upright driving position that makes it (painfully) easy to catch your knee against the steering column when getting in and out. The Mercedes-Benz Vito might be better for your needs.
