Midsized SUVs With the Roomiest and Most Comfortable Interiors
These SUVs get good fuel economy and can carry your family, along with all your belongings
Watch any ads for midsized SUVs and you might think you can comfortably fit your extended family and everything they own inside.
In reality, that’s rarely the case, with manufacturers balancing passenger room and comfort with cargo space and limitations imposed by styling.
Yet CR’s testing shows that you can easily find a model that will comfortably fit your family along with your groceries, sports equipment, or luggage when you travel.
Because CR buys and tests its own vehicles, we know exactly how much cargo can fit in the back, how roomy the driver’s seat feels, and how easy it is to get into and out of the front and rear seats.
To come up with our list of the roomiest, most comfortable midsized SUVs, our experts measured interior space and calculated cargo room by checking how many suitcases and duffel bags could fit in the back, and having testers of various shapes and sizes repeatedly get into and out of both the front and rear seats.
We do this as part of our weekslong, in-depth evaluations.
