The Mazda brand of SUVs are special because they are more premium without paying a luxury vehicle price tag. The Mazda CX-5 is a popular compact SUV that seats five passengers comfortably. It succeeds with excellent safety scores, with newer models featuring standard safety technologies. Where the Mazda CX-5 really shines is its luxury-style interior.

Besides its reliability, the Toyota RAV4 has versatile features that fit with various lifestyles. The RAV4 seats five passengers with the second row being quite spacious, even for adults. The increased legroom doesn’t take away from cargo space either. For example, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 has a maximum of 73.4 cu.ft. of cargo storage, which is one of the largest among other SUVs in its segment.
Starting with the 2017 Toyota RAV4, Toyota’s suite of safety and driver-assist technology features comes standard. These features are in high demand these days, and having the ability to utilize them in an affordable, used SUV is remarkable. The Toyota RAV4 is a comfortable, flexible, safe, and advanced SUV that can handle your carpool drop-offs and daily trips to the office.
The Chevy Equinox is a solid choice for a compact SUV because of its dependability and versatility. The Equinox is one of those SUVs that can work for a busy mom shuttling kids around, an empty nester who prefers the ease of an SUV, a commuter looking for great fuel economy, and so many other lifestyles and responsibilities. It seats five passengers in 2 rows with a lot of flexibility for passengers and cargo.
The Equinox consistently brings top-ranking fuel economy for drivers. For instance, the 2019 Chevy Equinox estimates up to 28 MPG in the city and 39 MPG on the highway if drivers get the turbo-diesel engine. The 2018 Chevy Equinox also features stellar fuel economy and is redesigned for that model year, bringing more advanced features. If you’re looking for a small SUV that can adapt to your ever-changing life, the Chevy Equinox can exceed your expectations with every drive.
The Honda CR-V is another 2 row, five-passenger SUV, but it’s worth noting for its remarkable features. It’s one of the best-selling SUVs in its segment for its quality, passenger space, cargo volume, and affordability. Honda is also a car brand that’s known for its reliability, and we see that in the Honda CR-V year after year. The CR-V ranks high for safety, too, with newer models featuring Honda’s suite of safety features as standard on most models, starting with the 2017 Honda CR-V.
Just like with other compact SUVs in this segment, the CR-V works with just about any lifestyle, but they seem to do it exceptionally well. One feature Honda gets right every year with the CR-V is the spacious rear legroom. The 2019 Honda CR-V features 40.4 inches of legroom, which beats out quite a few of its competitors. The Honda CR-V is a high-ranking option for those in the market for a compact SUV.
In the competitive 3-row SUV segment, the Ford Expedition is a strong contender. Ford is known for producing tough vehicles that succeed in performance and capability, and the Ford Expedition is no different. What makes the Expedition stand out from the rest is its truck-like capability. For families who require a lot of strength out of their SUV, the Expedition makes sense.
The Ford Expedition consistently leads its class in towing capacity. The 2018 Ford Expedition has a maximum towing capacity of 9,300 lbs and has 400 horsepower. Many of recent model year of the Ford Expedition you encounter though is going to have massive capability. Ford continues to improve the Expedition’s interior, too, by offering top technology, safety features, and quality finishes. With comfortable seating for up to 8 passengers, the Ford Expedition exceeds expectations of what a large SUV can do.
The Chevy Tahoe is a dominating force in the full-size SUV segment. It’s one of Chevy’s most popular vehicles and one of the most popular SUVs in general. The reason for its popularity is that its size makes it possible for up to nine passengers and spacious cargo while still being a manageable vehicle to operate with high-tech features. The Tahoe is still powerful enough to tow your boat for a weekend at the lake too. The 2019 Chevy Tahoe even features an available V8 engine that gives your ride even more power.
Inside, the Tahoe boasts premium-level features through its advanced technology and safety package. Chevy’s infotainment system is standard and provides connection, entertainment, and information on the road. Newer models offer innovative safety features like forward collision alerts and lane keep assist too. Bottom line, the Chevy Tahoe is the complete package with great capability and premium convenience.
The last best-selling SUV to discuss is another Honda staple, the Honda Pilot. The Pilot offers three rows of seating, maxing out at eight passengers, and provides great dependability. It’s an ideal family SUV that doesn’t provide as much towing capability as others in its class but satisfies the needs of many families. As the years go on, the Honda Pilot is filled with more upscale features like leather seating, heated and ventilated seats, and a hands-free power liftgate.
There are some noteworthy Honda Pilot models to mention when searching for a used SUV. The 2016 Honda Pilot was redesigned from the inside out, and the 2019 Honda Pilot includes Honda’s suite of safety features standard on all models. The Pilot makes sense for a growing family’s busy lives and gives an extra dose of premium for the most mundane drives.
