Everybody Gets a Good Seat in These Affordable SUVs

There are many new SUVs with three rows of seats. However, if you’re looking for three rows that are roomy enough for teens or adults, the list gets much shorter. The best third-row seats don't need just to be spacious, they also need to be comfortable and easy to access.

It’s OK to buy an SUV with a small back seat if you’re only going to use it occasionally. If you need it every day, however, you’ll want to make sure it’s a place that’s spacious and simple enough to get to that it doesn’t spawn a stream of complaints from its passengers.

We’ve combed our new SUV rankings and reviews to find the SUVs with the best third rows. Using legroom specs reported by manufacturers and opinions of the top automotive journalists in the country, we’ve determined that these 10 SUVs have the best back rows you can buy. Where there's a tie, the less expensive vehicle won. To keep the list affordable, we’ve excluded the most expensive luxury large SUVs.

Please note that our vehicle scores can change as new information becomes available. The U.S. scores shown here may not precisely match those found in each SUV’s comprehensive review.
