While a three-row SUV may seem like an obvious choice here, why not opt for something that’s both super comfortable and fun to drive? The new Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has a posh cabin and impressive driving dynamics. It’s the best of both worlds.

Thanks to Mercedes Intelligent Drive the CLS can semi-autonomously cruise highways. The hybrid inline-six engine won’t be as thirsty as some large SUVs, either. And if you come across a particularly twisty set of roads, pop it into Sport+ and watch all three passengers in the rear laugh (or cry) depending on the demographic.
