A bit bigger than its rivals, the Traverse could be a tight squeeze in your garage.

The Kia Telluride and related Hyundai Palisade are tops for sophistication and style, though they get lousy fuel economy.

Toyota’s Highlander comes in a hybrid configuration that sips fuel, though its infotainment system is just so-so.

Look to the Subaru Ascent for its excellent value and wide array of safety tech, while the Ford Explorer offers an upscale driving feel and a pricey but eco-friendly hybrid option.
