2019 Chevrolet Suburban Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 8.7

The 2019 Suburban has a refined cabin with quality materials that rival some luxury SUVs. The first two rows are spacious, and the third row has enough room for most adults. The Suburban’s cargo space is well above average for the class, and there are plenty of infotainment features.

  • "Inside, we found the Suburban's interior remarkably well-insulated from the outside world, and every comfort afforded by our Premier trim was appreciated without exception. From its marvelous seats to the upscale look and feel emanating from the dash and door panels, the Suburban feels more like a prestige luxury car than a family transport vehicle." -- Autotrader
  • "Such classic sport-utility capability is accompanied by a fairly luxurious interior, which can be optioned with all the electronics you might expect." -- Edmunds (2017)
  • "Step into the 2016 Suburban and expect to be captivated, as nothing here says 'truck.' The layout, the artistic flow and selection of materials are far beyond merely very nice." -- Kelley Blue Book (2016)

Seating

The Suburban seats seven to nine people, depending on whether you opt for bench or bucket seats in the first and second rows. Cloth upholstery and power-adjustable front seats come standard. Leather seats, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, and a heated steering wheel are available. You can also get additional power adjustment for the front seats, power-release second- and power-fold-flat third-row seats, and power-adjustable pedals.

Adults have plenty of room in the first two row, and the third row has enough space for all but the tallest riders – at least for short trips. 

The Chevy Suburban has two full sets of LATCH connectors on the second row and an upper tether anchor for each third-row seat. Except for the second row’s upper anchors, all the LATCH connectors are easy to find and use.

  • Front seats easily accommodate larger occupants, but the base model's tilt-only steering wheel might force taller drivers to contend with a long reach. The middle-row bench or optional bucket seats are similarly spacious, although the range of adjustment is limited." -- Edmunds (2017)
  • The 2nd-row's comfy seats recline but, unfortunately, don't slide fore and aft. The third row has enough foot- and legroom for adults, at least for shorter trips, and kids will be fine." -- Kelley Blue Book (2016)

Interior Features

The Suburban comes standard with the MyLink infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, HD Radio, satellite radio, five USB ports, Bluetooth, a six-speaker sound system, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The base model also comes with tri-zone automatic climate control, remote start, remote keyless entry, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and Teen Driver.

The MyLink infotainment system is user-friendly, with sharp graphics and well-placed controls. It can lag when responding to inputs, though. There are several infotainment upgrades, such as a rear-seat Blu-ray entertainment system, wireless smartphone charging, navigation, and a nine- or 10-speaker Bose sound system.

You can also get proximity keyless entry, push-button start, a sunroof and numerous safety features, such as forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, adaptive headlights, a safety alert seat, and a head-up display.

  • The MyLink infotainment system is especially nice, with a large, vivid color screen populated by easily understood touchscreen icons. The voice-recognition software could use a bit more schooling." -- Autotrader
  • The standard 8-inch central color infotainment displays feature sophisticated (and in some cases reconfigurable) graphics options. Unfortunately, the Chevrolet MyLink interface can sometimes be slow to respond to your touch inputs." -- Edmunds (2016)
  • "… there are still plenty of knobs for easy access to the most-used audio and climate-control functions, and buttons are grouped to help make everything easy to find." -- Automobile Magazine (2015)

Cargo

The Suburban has 39.3 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats in the upright position. Folding down the third row creates a 76.7-cubic-foot cargo bay, and collapsing the second row reveals a maximum 121.7 cubic feet of storage. That makes the Suburban’s cargo hold one of the largest in its class, alongside the GMC Yukon XL and Ford Expedition Max. A hands-free power liftgate is available. On the downside, the Suburban’s high cargo floor can make it hard to load larger items.

  • While there's no doubt that the Suburban can hold all of your stuff, remember that truck-style high cargo floor (which must clear the solid-axle suspension beneath) makes for strenuous loading." -- Edmunds (2017)
  • "A high cargo floor provides space for the flat-fold 3rd-row seats, but that space is not wasted – under the floor is a handy hidden storage area." -- Kelley Blue Book (2016)
  • "For smaller stuff, there's a forward console bin (with more 12-volt and USB jacks) and two cupholders (all covered), side console bins, and large map pockets. Also – and this is really neat – the dashboard screen flips up to reveal a roomy 'hidden compartment' behind it." -- Consumer Guide (2015)
