Kelley Blue Book named the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder one of the 16 Best Family Cars.
The family-friendly crossover made KBB’s best list because it continues to deliver the features that families like.
“Perhaps the showiest of these features is the Around View Monitor that offers you a multi-faceted view of where your vehicle is in relationship to other stuff, making parking and pulling out of a space in a crowded parking lot a relative breeze,” wrote the Kelley Blue Book Editors, “Some luxury brands have now tried to emulate this approach but none has done it as satisfactorily as Nissan has.”

The Around View Monitor isn’t the only feature that helped secure the Nissan Pathfinder’s spot on the list. Below are just a few more reasons the Pathfinder made the 16 Best Family Cars.
No Child-Seat Hassle
“Another Pathfinder feature that others have attempted to copy, often less successfully, is the EZ Flex & Glide System that allows a child seat latched in the second row to remain attached when the seats are moved forward to allow access to the third row.”
Pitch-Perfect on Road
“Pathfinders of old had a strong off-roader following based on their rugged construction and go-anywhere demeanor. Today’s Pathfinder is a kinder, gentler version that emphasizes everyday comfort while giving up some capabilities in the whoop-de-dos.”
Power and Economy
“In keeping with its car-based origins, the basic Pathfinder is a front-wheel-drive vehicle, while an All-Mode 4×4-i intelligent all-wheel-drive system is optional on all trims. The system enhances traction on wet and slippery surfaces and offers a full-lock setting for use on particularly challenging terrain.”
