ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

We get it. You want all of the stuff that makes a minivan so awesome, but you want the semisleekness of an SUV. Fortunately, you can get all of bells whistles of the most loaded minivan -- things like fold-flat seats, a motion-activated cargo door and rear seat entertainment -- in a half-dozen SUVs. Here are six family SUVs that may make you say, "Minivan? Meh."

2019 Lincoln Navigator

2019 Lincoln Navigator

Ahhh ... the roomy, luxurious Navigator. Not only does it look and feel divine, it's super comfy. We're talking second-row leg room (when the second-row seats are in the rearward position), what Lincoln calls its one-touch, tilt-and-slide second-row seats, and a power-reclining third row that make comfort, space and style three of the vehicle's standout features. Audiophiles will get a rocking kick out of the 20-speaker Revel Ultima Audio System, which optimizes different listening modes -- stereo, audience and onstage -- to ensure drivers are getting the full rhythmic experience, whether you love Mozart or Metallica. Like all of the vehicles included in this list, the Navigator seats seven or eight people, depending on whether you're going with the bench seat or captain's chairs in the second row. The SYNC 3 infotainment system, with a 10-in touchscreen, navigation, compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, six USB ports and a Wi-Fi hot spot, will surely keep your brooding teens and testy toddlers happy and -- dare we say -- quiet.

2019 Honda Pilot

2019 Honda Pilot

A favorite of harried parents who want to appear as if they have it all together, the Pilot ticks so, so many boxes. It's roomy (with seating for eight), and has the kind of optional tech that makes those early Saturday morning soccer drop-offs a lot more tolerable -- stuff like CabinControl, which allows those in back to control the vehicle's rear entertainment options and decide if they want to fire up the AC or crank up the heat. CabinTalk gives those up in front the chance to chat with folks sitting in the back via speakers and wireless headphones. Everyone benefits from wireless smartphone charging and an in-car Wi-Fi hot spot. And for those of us who need a little help with our seemingly endless bags of groceries or practice gear, you'll love the optional hands-free power lift gate. Be sure to get your rising soccer star to put her skills to use and kick her foot under the rear bumper to activate it. Find a Honda Pilot for sale

Toyota Highlander 2019

 2019 Toyota Highlander

The Highlander is the kind of SUV you may have a love/like relationship with. On the plus side, for drivers super concerned with safety, it's a dream. In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) crash testing, the Highlander earned a perfect 5-star overall rating.

And although it's roomy, seating up to eight on the Limited and the Limited Platinum trims, it can be a little cramped for both adults and kids seated in the third row. Folks may not be too comfortable riding for hours and hours in a small space. We do love the five standard USB ports, a sweet multizone climate control and Driver Easy Speak, which, thanks to its amplifying properties, happily reduces the need for bellowing into the back seat. Find a Toyota Highlander for sale

Chevrolet Traverse 2019

 2019 Chevrolet Traverse

The Chevrolet Traverse is a vehicular slam dunk -- sturdy, roomy and with the kind of user-friendly infotainment that makes commutes, errands and gymnastics drop-offs and pick-ups so much easier.

This husky 3-row SUV has the stuff most minivan fans want if you fork over more money for the Convenience and Driver Confidence package -- a power lift gate, heated front seats and that safety feature we love: blind-spot monitoring. The Traverse also has room for up to eight and tons of cargo space, including a huge hidden compartment under the cargo floor. The roomy feel of this Chevy is a huge plus, even in the second and third rows. As for infotainment, it packs a punch -- a 10-speaker Bose sound system, an onboard 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot and active cruise control. Find a Chevrolet Traverse for sale

2019 Subaru Ascent

2019 Subaru Ascent

Ah, the trusty Subaru. The Ascent has the features you want in an SUV with a hefty dose of -- wait for it -- cup holders. It's got 19 of them. That's a lot of trips to Dunkin'. If you've got kiddos, there are more than enough spots to hold loads and loads of Capri Suns and too many Gatorade bottles. Other minivanesque features include four USB ports (up to eight are available, depending on the trim you get), seating for seven (with the second row's captain's chairs) or eight people on the bench seat in the second row. You'll also dig the power lift gate, 4G Wi-Fi hot spot (with subscription) and ventilated front seats. An added plus for those willing to pay for it is Subaru's Entertainment Anywhere Package, which consists of two Subaru-configured iPads and a pair of headphones for individual streaming and gaming -- perfect for maintaining a (mostly) bicker-free back seat. Find a Subaru Ascent for sale

GMC Yukon XL Denali

2019 GMC Yukon XL Denali

With such standouts as the Pilot and the Ascent, the Yukon comes up a bit short in the cargo space, but the Yukon XL in the Denali trim is 20.5 inches longer, which is great for those missing the size of a minivan. Like its competitors on this list, it seats up to eight (or seven with captain's chairs). GMC fans love the second-row fold-and-tumble seats, third-row power fold-flat seats, head-up display multizone climate control, and a center console roomy enough for a laptop. Drivers will appreciate the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and scores of charging spots. In addition to up to seven USB ports, a wireless charging mat and a 110-volt power outlet located at the rear of the center console, the Denali also offers five 12-volt power points for passengers to plug in and charge up. Find a GMC Yukon XL for sale

These six family SUVs give us all of the shopping feels. Who says back-to-school is just for kids?
