SUVs With Roomy Third Rows

SUVs with three rows are great options for growing families, allowing the vehicles to carry up to seven, eight, or even nine passengers. Those last rows, however, are not all created equal. Some are only suitable for small kids, and many require acrobatic skills to access.

We’ve crunched all of the numbers, including third-row headroom, legroom, and shoulder room, to come up with the total amount of space offered to rear-seat passengers. Note that we continually update our U.S. News scores as new data becomes available, so the scores you see on the following pages may not match the ones you see on the individual review pages.

Buyers looking for 3-row SUVs should also consider the amenities offered to each row, including USB ports, ventilation controls, and child seat hardware. Keep in mind that having the ability to carry seven or more passengers means you also need the cargo space to carry their stuff.

Explore the following pages as we count down the 3-row SUVs with the most space for third-row passengers.
