8. 2013 Nissan Pathfinder – 30.7 Inches

With its latest redesign Nissan’s Pathfinder has forsaken its traditional truck roots, swapping a full-frame architecture for a car-based unibody. May the old-school pickup platform rest in peace, along with its numerous liabilities.

Undoubtedly one of the outgoing model’s biggest burdens was fuel economy, something the 2013 Pathfinder addresses. The new version delivers best-in-test efficiency, with scores from the EPA of 19 miles per gallon in city driving and 25 on the highway. That gives it a combined rating of 21 MPG. You can thank its relatively low-output engine (compared to some of the competition), which delivers 260 horsepower, as well as its super-efficient continuously variable transmission. CVTs are about as much fun as a night in jail, but giving credit where it’s due they are a boon for fuel economy.

As for third-row legroom, passengers are treated to 30.7 inches of space, a small step up from the Highlander.
