Though there aren't as many options available in the three-row SUV category as some other vehicle segments, we think drivers have plenty of top contenders when searching for their next large family hauler. Today, we are going to be taking a look at two popular models, the 2018 Toyota Sequoia and the 2018 Nissan Armada, to see what they bring to the table for families.
Both vehicles offer a great mix of trim levels that allow drivers to tailor their vehicle to their needs, and similar starting engines mean that drivers should also have plenty of power for daily driving tasks on the highway and off in both models. However, in terms of interior space, one vehicle offers a bit more wiggle room. Keep reading to learn more.

The 2018 Nissan Armada just underwent a full redesign that skyrocketed it to the top of some SUV shoppers wish lists thanks to new exterior and interior designs that help it stand out as a stylish option. However, we think the 2018 Toyota Sequoia is plenty stylish too and SUV shoppers will likely appreciate the added interior and cargo space it brings to the table.
As you can see from the specs above, the 2018 Toyota Sequoia has a large advantage when it comes to cargo space with almost 25 cubic feet of extra space in the back compared to the room on the 2018 Nissan Armada. The 2018 Toyota Sequoia offers more space in the front for passengers too. The 2018 Sequoia has 42.5 inches of legroom for front passengers compared to 41.0 inches of legroom for front passengers in the 2018 Armada. Passengers in the second rows have about equal amounts of legroom with 40.9 inches offered in the 2018 Sequoia and 41 inches offered in the 2018 Armada. Passengers in the third-row seats will appreciate the extra space available in the 2018 Sequoia the most with 35.3 inches of space compared to the cramped 28.4 inches of space in the 2018 Armada.
Overall, we think the 2018 Toyota Sequoia offers the best mix of amenities, versatility, and space for the money and is our pick for the top third-row performer.
