For a second straight year, the Nissan Pathfinder is one of the “Best Family Cars” according to Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. KBB.com editors recently selected the 2015 Pathfinder to the list due to its roominess, ease of access, refinement and handling, among other features.
Kelley Blue Book’s annual Best Family Cars list was created to outline how well America’s top family vehicles withstand their daily routines. This year, KBB.com editors rigorously tested 23 of the “latest and greatest vehicles” to determine the 15 Best Family Cars. The 2015 Pathfinder was one of only two midsize SUVs to make the list.
