Midsize SUVs remain incredibly popular, especially among families. These vehicles can hold a lot of passengers and also stow a lot of stuff, yet they’re not quite as big or as bulky as their full-size peers. They are durable, they are easy to drive, and many of the newer midsize SUVs are surprisingly fuel efficient.
As such, we know that many buyers are looking into the latest and greatest midsized SUVs—but what are those, exactly? Of the midsized SUVs released in the last year, what are the ones worthiest of your time and attention?
We’ll recommend our top five, and encourage you to explore each of them before making your final decision.
2016 Nissan Murano
There are several things that set the Murano apart—including unique styling and appealing driving dynamics. It’s a lot of fun, it comes with a beautifully designed interior, and it runs quiet. A hybrid option is also available, and it can deliver gas mileage of 31 mpg on the highway—not bad for a crossover!
2016 Ford Edge
This incredibly spacious crossover has a ton of cargo room, and a comfortable cabin for passengers, yet it drives just like a smaller car and never feels unmanageably large. There are a lot of cool bells and whistles available here, and a powerful engine to boot.
2016 Kia Sorento
Kia’s entry in the crossover market is enduringly popular with drivers, and not without reason: It is simply a great, reliable vehicle with a lot of features. Test drive one and you may find yourself immediately converted into a lifelong Sorento fan—and you’ll hardly be the only one!
2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
Note that the Sport is a slightly smaller, five-passenger entry in the Santa Fe lineup, and a really smart choice for those who like the crossover style but want to get a fairly compact and economical car. The gas mileage isn’t as good as on some of the other vehicles we’ve mentioned, yet there are a lot of interior comforts and safety features to make up for it. This one really is worth considering.
2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is always a popular option, and the latest iteration is no different. If you’re looking for something sporty, rugged, and dependable, Jeep is where you need to head.
Buying a Used Crossover
As you look for midsized SUVs, make sure you take the time to scour some local used car lots. You might be surprised by how many of these newer vehicles you’ll find there—and also by how affordable they can be. And even if you have to go back a year or two, these makes and models are all very worthwhile.
