Adjustable foot pedal cars?

A older family member will soon need to replace her aging car. Since she has shorter than the norm legs, she is sits very close to the steering wheel. It has been suggested that she buy a car with adjustable pedals so she can sit farther away from the airbag.
I did some internet searches but couldnt find a list of what new or newer vehicles have adjustable foot pedals available.

Does anyone know of a list? not ready to trust a salesman...........

On Cars.com you can do a search for 'power adjustable pedals' as a criteria. Vehicle Recommender: Car Search by Features & Options

Also, here's a list of the top 10 cars for short people.

A great idea. Ideal positioning should be about 10-11" from breast bone to center of the steering wheel to allow for proper inflation of the air bag in event of a crash. If that position cannot be established even with the adjustable pedals, you can add extensions to the pedals to help in positioning.

We had a 2008 Chevy Tahoe LTZ with adjustable pedals. I'm not sure if the others have more travel, but the Tahoe's only moved about an inch. Make sure you try them before you buy them.

I have an '08 Chrysler 300 and it has power adjustable pedals.
A very nice, comfortable car, by the way.
Best of luck!

My 2011 F350 dually has them!
DW's Ford Escape does also...
I believe many of the Fords do, but it may be in a option package.
