9. 2013 Toyota Highlander – 29.9 Inches
There can only be one, and it’s a Toyota. The Highlander delivers 29.9 inches of legroom in the rear-most seat. Not a bad showing considering this Scottish-themed crossover has the second-shortest wheelbase here. From hub to hub it spans 109.8 inches.
Interestingly its total cargo volume, the maximum amount of storage space with the second- and third-row seats folded flat, is 95.4 cubic feet, third-best in today’s Top 10.
This tartan-clad, kilt-wearing, bagpipe-playing crossover is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 that’s smoother than satin bed sheets. It delivers 270 horsepower and can tow up to 5,000 pounds. Unfortunately the engine is matched to a five-speed automatic transmission, which is at least one gear short by today’s standards.
