If your brood has grown enough to need a third row of seats in your car, that doesn’t always signal a one-way ticket to minivans. Third-row seats are a staple among many mid- and full-size SUVs, and even a few compact models shoehorn one back there. Larger models offer three-position benches in back that raise total seating positions to as many as nine, but adding even a two-position third row can accommodate up to six or seven.
