2. Nissan Sentra – 37.4 Inches

Driving away with a silver medal is the Nissan Sentra. This automotive Nancy Kerrigan delivers 37.4 inches of legroom in the back seat, fully an inch more than the Corolla. That’s practically enough room to host a square dance, but compact-car buyers don’t go to hoedowns so ignore this analogy.

Trunk volume is also second-best at 15.1 cubic feet. Overall interior volume is somewhat middling at 95.9 cubes.

    Nice to see this compiled, I’ve been curious about this for a while.  However, there are a host of other factors that affect real-world rear seat room, as I’m sure you all know.  The number next to “legroom” doesn’t mean everything.

    get your facts straight.  Small Pox is not wiped out

    I will argue this one any time. My versa has way more space In the back seat than my parents corolla. The corolla I can’t even lift my foot with out turning it. The versa I can put a rear facing convertible car seat in the middle and still lay both front seats all the way down.

    I just bought a new Sentra, but of all the compact cars I looked at, the Versa had, by far, the most rear leg room! It didn’t even make the list??? How?

  • ColumWood

    Good question. Technically the Versa is a sub-compact. And yes, it has the most rear seat leg room for a sub-compact.

    I love my versa note. I’m 6′ 2″ and I fit in the back seat.
