More on Large Cars

When ranking the best large cars, we place a heavy emphasis on overall passenger comfort. This includes not only seating, but also how smoothly the car moves over bumps and how quiet the cabin is. The engine is important too, because although the cars weigh less now than in the past, they still require enough muscle to move their weight down the road and provide enough acceleration to merge onto highways. Another important factor when comparing large cars is standard connectivity features like infotainment systems and rearview cameras.

Our rankings are based on analysis of third party reviews. Sometimes, we are unable to find enough reviews to publish a definitive ranking. Please check back later, as we are constantly updating our reviews.

Safety scores should only be compared between vehicles of similar size and weight. Larger, heavier vehicles generally provide more protection than smaller, lighter ones.
