Man I test drove it and it's is on the small end of the 3 row cars out I did also test the Telluride best in class hands down with plenty of space felt a bit under powered tho for a naturally aspirated V6 I did a car seat test on all three and the highlander was definitely the tightest thanks for the suggestion

They build them a lot better in Germany, but their diesel engines are much better than gasoline, I have friends who drive Audis (here in Switzerland, Europe) and their 6 cylinder diesels are great, but the 4 cylinder gasoline tend to have problems, but who knows, maybe it will last. Just beware that the repairs on these Volkswagens are uber expensive since they are extremely complicated cars that are fully loaded with complex electronics that start breaking down as the car ages and the mechanic that knows how to work on those is gonna charge you a lot of money for all the equipment
