No matter what generation of Traverse you buy, you're going to get a long, cool, and elegant SUV. As far as mid-size crossovers go, the Traverse falls on the more spacious end for passengers and driver. The model is known for its evergreen 5-star safety ratings from the NHTSA. A used Chevrolet Traverse near Hayward is an exemplary SUV on safety, as anyone who's ever owned one or even researched one will tell you. All models throughout will have features like lane change/blind spot monitoring (on higher trims).
It's not only about safety, though. Safety alone doesn't make an SUV right for a family. It's nice to know you've got top of the line safety features, but it's also nice to know that the model is blessed with years of leather seating, 20-inch aluminum wheel options, and interior touchscreen infotainment systems. This also means it's going to come with voice recognition and amazing sound systems to choose from as well.
