Rear headroom: 36.6 in
Rear legroom: 30.3 in
Capacity: 7

The Kia Sorento is a few inches longer and wider than compact crossovers like the Honda CR-V, or Kia's own Sportage, which opens up just enough space for the optional third row seat that's available on all but the base-model Sorento. Get the Sorento with it only if it's strictly for kids, though; adults will find that there simply isn't enough headroom or legroom to fit—even if the official measurements are comparable to those of other larger vehicles on this list. With the third row up in place, beware that there's only 9.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind—enough for the kids' backpacks but not much else.
