Among the best SUVs for families are the Nissan Rogue, Nissan Pathfinder, Chevrolet Traverse, Honda Pilot and the Ford Flex, according to a study conducted by Kelley Blue Book in 2014. The models were rated based on cargo space and family friendly features.
The main selling point of the 2014 Nissan Rogue is its versatile cargo area, according to Kelly Blue Book. The SUV lacks adequate cargo space behind the third row and provides insufficient leg room in front of the third row.
The most unique feature the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder offers is the ability to tilt the second row seat located behind the passenger seat forward to let a passenger into the third row without removing a booster seat, says Kelley Blue Book.
The 2014 Chevrolet Traverse has one of the largest interior spaces of any SUV, states Kelley Blue Book. The vehicle has enough room to comfortably accommodate eight people.
The 2014 Honda Pilot offers plenty of versatile storage space in the front console, but lacks the technical features that family cars rely on in the modern age, such as collision alerts and sensors for blind spots, notes Kelly Blue Book.
The 2014 Ford Flex is one of the roomiest SUVs available on the market, as reported by Kelley Blue Book. The vehicle provides enough legroom for a taller-than-average male in the passenger seat even with a rear-facing car seat in the second row.
