The Honda CRV has always been easy to recommend as a top SUV. With enough seating for 5 grown adults and a large cargo capacity, the CR-V is the perfect SUV for people on the go. Even with its ample amounts of room, the CR-V is still able to command a respectable 28 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway (1)
The turbocharged engine delivers a combination of affordability, economy, and zest. The CR-V poses as a great SUV for all families, due to the ample rear passenger leg room available and the outstanding safety scores it received.
Of course, the CR-V comes with heaps of technological features. Smartphone integration and other safety features come on a majority of CR-V trim levels. Starting at just $24,000, the CR-V is an affordable option for those looking for long-term and reliable transportation.
For the 2019 model year, Subaru conducted a complete redesign of the Forester. Starting at just $24,295, the new Forester now has more passenger room and higher quality materials than the previous generation (2).

The cargo space behind the seats is above average for its class, exceeding the Ford Escape and the Honda CR-V. The Forester comes standard with lots of technology including a 6.5-inch touch screen along with Bluetooth, satellite radio, and a Wi-Fi hot spot (2).
If you are looking for an affordable yet compact luxury SUV, the BMW X1 may be for you. As the smallest SUV in BMW’s lineup, the X1 isn’t the biggest or most powerful member of the BMW clan. However, the X1 earns a top spot as a subcompact and affordable luxury SUV. The X1 features a powerful and responsive turbocharged engine combined with sharp handling (3).
The X1’s storage capabilities also set it above the pack. Underfloor compartments help to maximize storage space while ample leg and headroom make getting in and out of the X1 a breeze.
Although the X1 is BMW’s introductory SUV, the leather-wrapped seats and sleek trim embody the high build quality we expect from BMW. The X1 also earns a respectable 23 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway (3).
2019 Hyundai Kona

Starting at just $21,000, the Kona is an affordable option for those looking for a technology-rich but affordable SUV. Hyundai also carries one of the best warranties in the business, which is for 10 years or 100,000 miles (4).
2019 Ford Edge
Ford has refreshed the Edge for 2019, making significant changes to the exterior and interior. The Edge features numerous safety features which lead it to rank highly in the NHTSA’s safety ratings (5). The 4-cylinder EcoBoost motor can get you 22/29 MPG on the city and highway respectively.
The 2019 models come standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission to help ensure maximum fuel economy. Many driver-assistance features such as blind-spot monitoring and lane-keeping assistance are now standard as well. All 2019 Edge’s also come standard with satellite radio, Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices, and a hands-free liftgate.
With a MSRP of just $29,995, the Edge is perfect for those of us looking for the latest in technology and safety features.
