And wanting a vehicle capable of fulfilling needs that only come up a couple times a year.

My sister and her husband were recently shopping for a new (used) car. They don't have any kids yet, but they wanted a vehicle big enough for when family comes to visit and for bulky purchases like furniture, situations that'll likely only happen a handful of times a year. I tried talking her into something like a Camry or Accord and just rent or borrow a bigger vehicle as needed. They ended up getting a 2007 Honda Pilot 4WD, which is capable of 20mpg highway.
