Class: Subcompact Crossover
Miles driven: 336
Fuel used: 13.5 gallons
Nissan is bolstering its small-SUV roster with a new subcompact crossover that was unveiled at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Wikipedia describes a soccer mom as “a married middle-class woman who lives in the suburbs and has school-age children. She is sometimes portrayed in the media as busy or overburdened and driving a minivan or SUV. She is also portrayed as putting the interests of her family, and most importantly her children, ahead of her own.” Per Wikipedia, the term started showing up in the national media in 1982.
