Don’t automatically accept that bunched SUVs are too access akin or too baby for your wants and needs. The latest entries in this booming articulation action decidedly ample interiors with abounding of the aforementioned amenities begin in the mid-size segment. Pricing for bunched SUVs ranges from the low $20,000 akin to added than $40K. If that exceeds your budget, it’s account because auto crossovers, which are hardly abate and added affordable. For all-around utility, however, bunched crossovers accept a abundant alloy of size, capability, comfort, and utility, not to acknowledgment carlike clarification that makes them accessible to drive every day.

The arduous cardinal of choices in this chic can feel overwhelming, so we’ve fabricated it accessible by baronial every bunched SUV in the chic from affliction to first.

16. Mitsubishi Outlander

The Mitsubishi Outlander is one of the few cartage in this chic that offers a third row of seats. That third row is a bound fit for aloof about any admeasurement passenger, but it could be advantageous in a pinch. The Outlander is additionally offered as a constituent amalgam that delivers about 15 afar of all-electric ambit afore the gas agent starts to advice out. In all added aspects, this is a appealing boilerplate bunched SUV. The autogenous is accustomed acknowledgment to basal abstracts and anachronous electronics, while the achievement from the nonhybrid agent is underwhelming. A bound cardinal of options agency there isn’t abundant allowance for convalescent aloft the Outlander’s basal package. It’s belted out by Mitsubishi’s added alms in this segment, the Eclipse Cross, but it does action a added ample cabin.

15. Hyundai Nexo

If you’re cerebration to yourself, “Gee, that Hyundai Nexo looks a little funny,” your instincts are correct. It is a little funny. It’s a abstruse assertive and the alone hydrogen fuel-cell–powered car on this list. (And it’s one of alone a few accessible in the United States on any list.) Its low baronial has added to do with its bound availability, bound refueling infrastructure, and aerial bulk than its accepted execution, which is absolutely good. The Nexo is refueled with hydrogen at the few bushing stations in U.S., which are begin mostly in California, which is afresh fed into the onboard fuel-cell endless to accomplish electricity. Thus, the pricey, high-tech Hyundai drives like the electric car that it is, with bland adeptness commitment and about quiet operation.

14. Jeep Compass

One of the best things about the Jeep Compass is that it resembles the larger, mid-size Grand Cherokee SUV. The Compass alike has a few handsome flourishes that its bigger affinity lacks, such as a “floating” roof architecture and a sleeker nose. But the avant-garde architecture cues don’t accomplish up for this SUV’s abridgement of clarification everywhere else. The accepted four-cylinder agent is weak, and the nine-speed automated chiral does little to advice accomplish up for the engine’s abridgement of punch. The administration is bigger than the tall, boxlike contour would suggest, and the Jeep Compass can be outfitted in Trailhawk guise for off-road duty. The autogenous is able but alone boilerplate in agreement of abstracts and refinement.

13. Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross borrows its name from one of the brand’s allegorical (and discontinued) sports cars, but it doesn’t accommodate alive achievement aces of the title. Instead, the Eclipse Cross is a berserk styled but contrarily absolutely boilerplate crossover. The accepted four-cylinder agent delivers solid dispatch and a aesthetic feel that is bedridden alone hardly by the continuously capricious automated chiral (CVT). The abeyance affability is on the bendable side, so it favors abundance over performance. A nice alternative of abstracts makes this Mitsubishi’s autogenous feel added big-ticket than you adeptness expect, and the accepted blueprint of the controls is simple and accessible to use. Commuter and burden amplitude is about boilerplate with analytic able seats that bend bottomward in aback for accessible added storage.

12. Jeep Cherokee

Confused by Jeep’s awash baby SUV lineup? The automaker sells three crossovers with at atomic some admeasurement and bulk overlap. The auto Renegade (on the ample end of its one-size-smaller class), the bunched Compass (found abroad in this roundup), and assuredly the slightly-larger-outside-but-no-bigger-inside Jeep Cherokee you see here. In fact, the smaller, cheaper Compass boasts added autogenous and burden amplitude than does this Cherokee, but it lacks the Cherokee’s nicer autogenous and six-cylinder and turbocharged four-cylinder agent options. Agnate to the Compass, the Cherokee can be outfitted for austere off-road excursions, but some of the college trim levels (including the off-road-ready Trailhawk) are appreciably added expensive. Recent updates added burden room, but the Jeep Cherokee still lags abaft the chic leaders by a avant-garde margin.

11. GMC Terrain

Love or abhorrence the GMC Terrain’s blocky looks, there’s no catechism the SUV’s mechanicals aim to please. Lighter and added aesthetic than its predecessor, the latest Terrain offers a best of two turbocharged four-cylinder engines: a 170-hp 1.5-liter and a befuddled 2.0-liter with 252 horsepower. The ride is on the close side, however, and like its Chevrolet-badged Equinox sibling, the body affection central leaves abundant to be adapted accustomed the GMC’s bulk point. While we acknowledge the accepted touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, including a 4G LTE abstracts affiliation with a Wi-Fi hotspot, the GMC Terrain’s push/pull-button chiral controls alive low on the centermost animate are awe-inspiring and booty some accepting acclimated to.

10. Chevrolet Equinox

What places the Chevrolet Equinox avant-garde of its automated sibling, the GMC Terrain? Added than its cleaner, beneath boisterous looks, the Equinox’s added adventuresome autogenous administration hides its characterless body affection bigger than the GMC’s blockier, added boxlike cabin. Plus, the Chevy lacks the Terrain’s odd button-operated chiral controls. Exterior administration (and accepted shifter) aside, the Chevy offers the aforementioned turbocharged agent lineup, consisting of 1.5- and 2.0-liter gas four-cylinders. We would abstain the abject engine, if possible; its blah achievement is a big footfall bottomward from the bold 2.0-liter. All Chevy Equinox trim levels bear solid administration and ride quality, but you adeptness anticipate alert about the alternative 19-inch wheels, which accomplish the ride anytime stiff. A alive Equinox will go on auction ancient in 2021.

9. Ford Escape

The new Ford Escape bunched SUV looks far added carlike than its predecessor. Not a surprise, really, as the latest Escape has to advice ample the abandoned larboard by several discontinued Ford models, including the Focus, Fusion, and Taurus sedans. To accord the Escape a avant-garde ambit of abilities, it’s accessible with two gas engines, a gas-electric hybrid, and a constituent hybrid. The abject 181-hp 1.5-liter gas agent delivers able performance, while the alternative 252-hp 2.0-liter agent makes the Escape absolutely zippy. The amalgam adaptation pairs a 2.5-liter gas agent with two electric motors and delivers an EPA appraisement of 41 mpg combined. We like the aesthetic ride affection of the Ford Escape as able-bodied as its ample berth and avant-garde features. Abreast from a few cheap-looking berth materials, it’s a well-executed agent that competes abundantly in the class.

8. Kia Sportage

If you can get accomplished the Kia Sportage’s different-looking face and into the driver’s seat, you’ll acquisition a tasteful autogenous that’s about Audi-like in its detail. A continued account of accepted appearance makes it abundantly inviting, alike in the lower trim levels. The alive acquaintance analogously exceeds expectations, with acceptable administration and abating brakes. Kia offers two engines: a abject 2.4-liter four-cylinder that is appealing anemic and an alternative turbocharged 2.0-liter four that makes it one of the quicker cartage in the segment. The downside is characterless breadth with a accumulated appraisement of 23 mpg for the turbocharged front-wheel-drive Sportage. Today’s must-haves, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as able-bodied as active-safety appearance such as automated emergency braking, are accessible on the Kia Sportage.

7. Hyundai Tucson

Even admitting Hyundai’s Tucson doesn’t do any one affair absolutely well, it’s still competent at best of the things buyers in the chic expect. Shoppers will acquisition a accurately congenital autogenous with easy-to-use controls. Commuter and burden allowance is about average, but we like the actuality that all models appear accepted with a 7.0-inch touchscreen as able-bodied as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The anatomy affability delivers a comfortable, controlled ride, although the abject 164-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder agent was apathetic during our testing. We advance investigating the alternative 181-hp 2.4-liter if you appetite added acceptable achievement from this vehicle. Accepted assurance appearance like forward-collision admonishing and lane-keep abetment add to the Hyundai Tucson crossover’s already able bulk equation.

6. Subaru Forester

The Subaru Forester has done little to blend with this acceptable formula, and the Forester afresh offers accepted all-wheel drive, accomplished visibility, a ample interior, and a abundant burden hold. Subaru now additionally throws in several active-safety appearance such as automated emergency braking, lane centering, and lane-departure admonishing as able-bodied as a rear-seat admonition system. We’re a little aghast that the ahead alternative turbocharged agent is gone, forth with the accessible chiral transmission. That said, the 182-hp artlessly aspirated boxer-four accepted beyond the calendar pairs able-bodied with Subaru’s continuously capricious automated chiral (CVT) to bear smooth, analytic alive acceleration. It’s absolutely not the quickest in the class, but the Subaru Forester is still one of the best all-around bunched crossovers.

5. Nissan Rogue

The all-new Nissan Rogue is awfully bigger over the crossover it replaces. Nissan has brought detail and clarification the aftermost Rogue lacked, with a abundant bigger basement position and a nicer autogenous with lots of accepted and alternative features. The sole powertrain is a 181-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder, which is not alone quicker than the earlier model, but was additionally added ammunition able during our artery ammunition abridgement analysis afterwards extensive 32 mpg with our all-wheel-drive analysis car. Another above advance is the added aesthetic agent and beneath abhorrent CVT.

4. Toyota RAV4

The Toyota RAV4 reverses this accepted crossover’s accelerate into anonymity with characteristic styling, a much-improved autogenous that is as applied as ever, and bluff alive dynamics. It is additionally one of the few bunched SUVs to action a amalgam alternative that provides hardly added adeptness and appreciably bigger ammunition economy. A plug-in-hybrid model, the RAV4 Prime, with up to 40 afar of all-electric ambit is additionally available. With 302 horsepower, the RAV4 Prime is decidedly quick, assault Toyota’s Supra 2.0 sports car in a few dispatch tests. Android Auto is now accepted forth with Apple CarPlay. Our alone above complaints centermost on the Toyota RAV4’s almost loud four-cylinder engine. Some adeptness adore the fiery agent note, but we anticipate too abundant babble enters the cabin.

3. Honda CR-V

Honda’s CR-V isn’t the sportiest or sexiest bunched crossover around—that’d be the Mazda CX-5—but it is able-bodied rounded. Tidy alive amenities amalgamate with a versatile, well-packaged autogenous to bear aloof what best crossover buyers seek. For 2020, Honda fabricated the ahead alternative turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder agent accepted beyond the board. Agnate to the Toyota RAV4, the CR-V has a babble problem; its berth lets in a appropriate bulk of road, wind, and agent babble at speed. But the Honda’s packaging for bodies and burden is so acceptable that it outweighs its acoustics. It’s additionally account acquainted that Honda added a amalgam adaptation of the CR-V accumulation bigger ammunition adeptness with accepted all-wheel drive.

2. Volkswagen Tiguan

The Volkswagen Tiguan is one of the better offerings in the segment—large abundant to clasp in a tiny third row—and it uses that admeasurement to bear a aesthetic alive experience. Its alone accessible agent is a 184-hp turbocharged four butt that generally feels overmatched by the Tiguan’s mass, but it’s additionally bland and (particularly on the freeway) absolutely ammunition efficient. The VW’s ride is able but not sporty. Like best Volkswagens, the autogenous is business-like with basal appearance and adamantine materials. For 2020, the Tiguan accustomed accepted Wi-Fi connectivity for the Car-Net arrangement and alternative wireless buzz charging. Don’t apprehend to accept abundant burden allowance back the VW Tiguan’s third-row seats are in use, but not abounding players in this articulation alike action a third row, so it’s not a bad trade-off.

1. Mazda CX-5

Mazda’s CX-5, already acclaimed for its class-above autogenous appointments, adds a abounding apartment of alive assurance appearance as accepted accessories on all models for 2020. Lined up alongside the added crossovers on this list, the Mazda makes a acceptable altercation that it belongs in the adherent bunched affluence crossover segment. But affluence isn’t its alone game. The CX-5 additionally endears itself to us with council and administration that are uncharacteristically acknowledging for the segment, and Mazda has added added that adeptness with the accession of its G-Vectoring Control Plus technology. It doesn’t accept the best avant-garde technology or the best burden room, but the Mazda CX-5 is acceptable at aloof about aggregate else, which is why it’s one of our 10Best accolade winners.
