Are you looking for your family’s next SUV? A smaller SUV is great for families who need a little extra room, but not as much as a full-size SUV provides. These vehicles are spacious, but don’t guzzle as much gas as their larger brethren. The small SUV category
is growing quickly, giving you lots of options to choose from.
6 Best Small SUVs On the Market
Here are some of the best models on the market right now:
#1 Chevy Traverse
The Chevy Traverse
is a smaller SUV that offers you a very spacious interior that is very family-friendly – it has room for eight! Critics believe the Traverse has one of the best interiors in its class. The ride is smooth, quiet and comfortable. The Traverse offers plenty of cargo room and it handles very well. It also got a top crash rating making it an ideal choice for families!
#2 Hyundai Tucson
The Hyundai Tucson is a small SUV that looks great and has a roomy interior. It handles well and has a very stylish interior. The Tucson’s infotainment system is easy to use, but the fuel economy isn’t great and it doesn’t deliver power to the driver very smoothly.
#3 Subaru Crosstrek
The Crosstrek offers rugged styling
, a roomy interior and lots of extra space in the back. The ride is smooth and the controls are easy to use. It has more ground clearance than nearly any other small SUV, aside from a Jeep. It also has a five-star crash rating, which is higher than many in its class. The Crosstrek’s gas mileage isn’t great, though, and its acceleration is extremely slow.
#4 Ford Escape
The Escape by Ford
offers you a choice of powertrains, two which provide you with quick acceleration. It also handles well and has some very unique new infotainment choices. The interior is well-made, but not as spacious as its competitors. The fuel economy in the Escape isn’t great either, and it only earned a four-star crash rating.
#5 Kia Sportage
The Kia Sportage
looks a little odd on the outside compared to the others in its category, but the interior is very tasteful and upscale. The ride is comfortable and it handles well, but when it comes to cargo space, the Kia disappoints. It does offer spacious seating, but there just isn’t room for much more. The Kia’s gas mileage isn’t great either.
#6 Mitsubishi Outlander
The Outlander offers you above-average gas mileage and it is very spacious (with seating for up to seven adults). The second row of seats reclines. This SUV also gets a five-star safety rating. The only problems with the Outlander
lie in its power (not enough) and its handling (not a very smooth ride).
