False. Sure, there’s no question about their utility and, hence, their prevalence on the American driving landscape. But until someone comes up with one that doesn’t at least partially emasculate red-blooded men, we choose to drive other vehicles that offer up utility, a semblance of driving pleasure and better aesthetics than a toaster oven. Granted, most of them don’t offer up the kind of open rugrat roaming space of a minivan, but they also won’t embarrass you at the next dudes get-together. Here are five we tested on the road.
