4. 2012 Honda Pilot – 32.1 Inches

On the downward slope of this Top 10 list is the blocky Pilot. Honda’s take on a three-row crossover has 32.1 inches of legroom in its aft-most bench seat. That figure is married with 38.2 inches of headroom. Shaquille O’Neal could probably wear a sombrero back there and still not graze the headliner.

The Pilot rides on the third-smallest wheelbase here at a petite 109.2 inches. Despite this “shortcoming” it offers a maximum of 87 cubic feet of cargo volume. Amazingly there are 18 cubic feet of space available behind the third row, third-best in this test. Chrysler, are you paying attention? This is how you efficiently engineer a crossover.

Under the hood is a 250 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine. It’s matched to a five-speed automatic transmission, just like the Subaru Tribeca and Toyota Highlander. See a pattern here? Why are these Japanese automakers cutting corners in the transmission department?
