One of the best things about an auto show is the ability to do on-the-spot comparisons of similar vehicles. So, at the LA Auto Show, we took advantage of the situation and did a comparison of full-size SUV third-row seats.
At 5-feet-tall, I’m about the size of your average 10-year-old, which is also about the size of the average person you’re going to shove, er ask nicely, to sit in the third row of any vehicle. Therefore, I hopped into the third-row seats of all the full-size SUVs I could find at the show and looked at amenities, ease of entry and comfort.
While the trim levels varied, you still get a really good idea of overall comfort and amenities available. Ease of entry and exit varied widely between vehicles, and even though they were all roughly the same size vehicles (no extended wheelbase options), legroom also varied.
While I don’t want to give away the punchline of the video, I will say the most uncomfortable third-row seat went to the Chevy Tahoe.
But as for the full-size SUV third-row seats winner, I’ll channel my inner Highlander and say: There can be only one.
You just have to watch the video to find out which one it is.
