9. Marry: 2014 Nissan Pathfinder
If you want maximum vehicular practicality get a minivan, but if you want a useful product that still has a bit of design flair check out a crossover. The Nissan Pathfinder is a nice offering in the three-row segment of the market. It’s roomy, comfortable and fuel efficient; it’s even stylish as utility vehicles go. Under the hood it’s powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of twist. Power is sent to either the front or all four wheels through a no-nonsense continuously variable transmission. The Pathfinder is a good option to welcome into your life.
