I really don't care for the Traverse's strangely shaped, undersized rear window, which I find neither attractive nor practical. From the outside, the window looks way too small for such a sizeable vehicle, and the broad expanse of sheetmetal underneath it only serves to emphasize the odd proportions. From the driver's seat, the window appears small and very far away through the rearview mirror, compromising rear visibility. Other than that, the Traverse is a perfectly capable crossover vehicle, with comfortable seats, a nicely styled interior, room for seven passengers, and a decent powertrain.
