For growing families, a large SUV can make a lot of sense, particularly for travels around Ithaca, Trumansburg, and Watkins Glen. Maguire Auto carries a number of third-row SUVs for families in our inventory; cars designed to fit plenty of passengers and plenty of cargo.

We're taking a closer look at some of these top SUVs and what they have to offer. Which one is the right fit for your family? Schedule a test drive today to find out!

Ford Expedition

The 2019 Ford Expedition has seating for up to eight people, with plenty of cargo room to boot. The available second-row tip-and-slide seats provide easy access to the third row, allowing for you to easily secure a child-safety seat before you get moving. The standard PowerFold® and power-recline third-row seats keep those seated in the back comfortable, too.

Overall, the Expedition provides you with up to 104.6 cu. ft. of cargo space. Whether you're bringing some groceries home from the store or heading out on a weekend adventure, you'll have enough space for all your belongings

What's under the hood is always important, too. This Ford SUV delivers, with a turbocharged V6 engine producing 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.

Kia Sorento

The versatile Kia Sorento features standard 7-person seating, with an interior that can adapt to your needs. The second-row sliding seats provide access to the third row, while the standard Remote Release lets you fold down the second row while at the rear of the vehicle, making cargo load-in easy. The available hands-free Smart Power Liftgate opens when your smart key is near, making cargo load-in even easier.

The Sorento is powered by a capable 185-horsepower 4-cylinder engine. You can upgrade to the available 290-horsepower V6, which gives the Sorento an extra kick on the highway. The available Dynamax® All-Wheel-Drive system provides improved control on the road, particularly when weather conditions deteriorate.

Subaru Ascent

The all-new 2019 Subaru Ascent is the Subaru family's first three-row offering, with space for either seven or eight passengers. It's equipped with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, and offers up to 5,000 lbs. of towing capacity. The turbocharged 4-cylinder engine produces 260 horsepower.

You'll have the option of second-row bench seating for up to eight, or available captain's chairs with space for up to seven people. With 153.5 cu. ft. of passenger volume and plenty of cargo space along with hidden underfloor storage, there's enough room for every passenger and everything they're bringing along.

The available 54-inch panoramic moonroof makes the passenger space feel even more open and inviting. The available Power Rear Gate, meanwhile, can be opened or closed with a push of a button, so it's easy to access the cargo area.

Volkswagen Atlas

All three of the rows in the VW Atlas are comfortable. The standard 60/40 split-folding second-row seats offer flexibility, with the split-folding 50/50 third-row seats coming standard, too. The available heated and ventilated front seats keep those seated up front comfortable. You'll have up to 97 cu. ft. of cargo space with the second and third row of seats folded, with the available hands-free power liftgate making it easy to load items in.

The standard 2.0-liter turbocharged engine delivers up to 235 horsepower, but there's also a V6 engine, which produces 276 horsepower. The VW Atlas can also tow up to 5,000 lbs.

The available panoramic moonroof covers almost the entire length of all three rows. If you're looking for that convertible-type feeling, just pop the roof open.
