Roomy, For a Crossover

With convincing faux aluminum trim, upholstered window pillars and plenty of low-gloss, padded surfaces, the Enclave's cabin feels richer than any well-optioned minivan's — not to mention its GM siblings. Roomy front seats, a high driving position and an easy-access third row, on the other hand, create a similar feeling: "It's like a minivan in here," one backseat passenger said.

Well, almost. The Enclave's seven seats — eight, if you swap the second-row captain's chairs for a three-seat bench — and 153 cubic feet of passenger space beat other crossovers but fall short of a Toyota Sienna or Honda Odyssey. That becomes apparent in the second row, where adults will find ample legroom but not enough thigh support. The captain's chairs sit too low to the ground, and their narrow seatbacks could have larger passengers insisting on sitting up front.

Provided those in the adjustable second-row seats can scoot forward a few clicks, third-row passengers should have enough legroom. The bench seat sits very close to the floor, but so do most third rows.
