First I am 6 ft 2 inches and fit comfortably in this vehicle, the steering wheel is great and fits in the hand perfect. I also have a Buick enclave at 48k it costs 20k more but the Nissan is the car I drive every day. The nav is fantastic, response is precise and exact. While the enclave is my luxurious ride I must say I wished I saved the 20k and bought two of these. This is the best all around car in its class and a deal for the price.
Steering wheel, navigation, gas mileage, seats are better than Buick enclave
You do not need cross rails the side rails are for looks and are great looking keep as accessory.
