Top 10 Crossovers with the Most Third-Row Legroom

Top 10 Crossovers with the Most Third-Row Legroom

1. 2013 Chevrolet Traverse – 33.2

And the winner of this comparison is the Chevrolet Traverse. GM’s lambda-based crossover delivers 33.2 inches of legroom; identical to the Explorer. But what’s even more interesting is that these two vehicles share another key dimension. Third-row headroom is equal at 37.8 inches, a figure perfectly matched by the Nissan Pathfinder. Talk about synchronicity, either that or competitive benchmarking.

The Traverse and Explorer may have tied in the legroom department but we gave the nod to Chevy for a few reasons. First, “C” comes before “F” in the alphabet, simple enough. Second, it has the longest wheelbase in this Top 10, stretching 118.9 inches, which is almost 5 inches greater than the next-longest vehicle, the Pathfinder. Third, this husky crossover has the most overall cargo space at 116.3 cubic feet. That’s more than a Chevy Tahoe!

The Traverse also tows the most in this comparison at 5,200 pounds (when properly equipped, of course). It also delivers the most torque at 270 lb-ft (tied with the Mazda) and nearly the most horsepower. Curiously these output figures are delivered with an optional dual exhaust system. On top of its capacious interior these reasons seal the deal and make the Chevy Traverse this week’s Top 10 victor.

    Crossovers not suvS, like how the explorer and old range rover sports are now the same design, since ford bought them to take the design, sneaky fyi never buy a land rover product unless you like to fork out the money, biggest pos out there.

    Toyota Sequoia has the highest 3rd row leg room. Why wasn’t it mentioned here?

    We’d classify that as an SUV rather than a crossover.
