Room and comfort are not issues with the 2008 Chevrolet Suburban.
Cars.com confirms that the 2008 Chevrolet Suburban's "front passengers will enjoy comfortable, wide seats and a straightforward instrument panel" that is much easier for the driver to operate and navigate. ConsumerGuide reports "generous headroom and legroom," but cautions that the Chevrolet Suburban 2008 "bench seat's cramped center position should be reserved for emergency situations only." The second row is "spacious"; however, ConsumerGuide warns that the Chevy Suburban's third–row seating is "best left to children." Otherwise, Edmunds assures potential buyers that there is "spacious seating" for as many as nine passengers and their cargo.
In fact, what the 2008 Chevy Suburban has the most of is room; "cargo volume is where the Suburban really excels," says Cars.com, reporting a massive 45.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row. That increases to a whopping 137.4 cubic feet when the third-row seats are removed. They also fold down, but ConsumerGuide warns that the "seatbacks rest well above the level of the floor, complicating loading of larger items." ConsumerGuide adds that the 2008 Chevy Suburban's "cabin storage is enhanced by large center console bin," and there are "roomy door pockets in front, but none in rear."
ForbesAutos observes a higher grade of interior materials in the Suburban; Chevrolet has built an interior "crafted from higher-quality materials than before." ConsumerGuide agrees, saying that "assembly quality ... shows strong attention to detail" and that "most interior materials feel high-grade, though soft-touch surfaces are scarce."
ConsumerGuide also reports "moderate highway-speed wind rush" aboard the 2008 Chevy Suburban, so it's not the quietest ride on the road. Kelley Blue Book notes "noticeable engine noise" under hard acceleration, but Edmunds says "the cabin is quiet at speed."
The 2008 Chevrolet Suburban will get you where you need to go in comfort that approaches luxury--unless you're an adult in the back row or the middle front.
