Researching and Selecting Cars

What's sites do you guys use when researching cars? I historically liked Edmunds but now I find myself wanting more than new/used, miles, price range, body style, year, etc...

I'd like to be able to search on (or at lease easily compare):

Trunk/cargo area space
Drive (4vs2 wd)
View abilities- ie how big are the blind spots (I know this varies by Drive)
Anticipated resale (anecdotal we mostly know)

What else do you guys wish was more readily available and easy to use?

I ask because I'm looking to replace my Rogue with something a little larger and nicer. I'd like to narrow it down to just a couple options and not go Drive a dozen cars to get my answers.

2013 Nissan Rogue SV
2014 Honda Odyssey EXL Smokey Topez
2002 Honda Odyssey EXL GG (Up for sale)

For specs Edmunds is good. I do use Carmax mainly for the pics for what it's worth. I get pissed as there are so many sites that do not even list the drive (FWD vs RWD WTF?).

It's a bitch for searching but once you narrow it down the vehicle specific forums are good for more specific info.
