TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2016 Chevy Traverse is a smooth and comfortable alternative to the minivan or full-size SUV. The 2016 Honda Pilot has axed its hard edges: it's once again a smooth, capable family wagon, one that raises the bar for refinement. The 2016 Nissan Pathfinder lacks sporty or off-road intentions, instead offering space for seven in a composed, quiet environment.
