How can they say an Enclave is mid-size, but a Tahoe is full-size? The Enclave has more interior room than a Tahoe. They list the Terrain as compact but the SRX as mid-size. This makes no sense either as they are basically the same size.
Tahoe does have more room than Enclave, especially the extended version, most of them have 8 seats while Enclave is 7 seat but really a 6 seat, last row can only sit two comfortably not three.
If you look it up, Enclave/Traverse/Acadia has more interior volume than a regular Yukon/Tahoe. That is a fact. Sure the extended version is larger, but that is not what the article reported. You can get an 8 seat Enclave, as well.

Interior volume is not a true accurate reflection of the actual usable space, manufacturers tweak it around to make it marketable, car interior is irregular size, how they package it can have a lot of unusable spaces but still calculated into the interior volume. If you want to compare actual sizes for passengers, leg room, shoulder room, hip room, head room are the numbers you want to focus on. Tahoe has Enclave beat on every category except third row leg room. I rented both and Enclave is definitely smaller when you ride in it.
