SUVs are some of the most popular cars in the market today. Manufacturers are meeting this surge in demand by supplying them in various shapes and sizes.
We understand that navigating through so many options can be a daunting process. To make it easier for you, we have compiled a list of the top four SUVs to consider buying in every size segment.
Subcompact: Kia Soul
The 2021 Kia Soul’s boxy design and roomy cabin put the “fun” in functional and funky! Despite facing stiff competition from the new Hyundai Kona and Kia Seltos, the Soul wins with its significantly lower price points.
Kia offers potential buyers a choice between two gas-powered four-cylinders, including a powerful 201-hp turbocharged engine. But if a gas-powered engine is not what you are looking for, you can wait for the upcoming electric model. The 2021 Soul’s distinct personality and affordability take the cake.
Subcompact Luxury: BMW X2
The 2021 BMW X2 has disrupted the market by bringing more aggression to its driving dynamics. Featuring a 228-hp turbocharged four-cylinder, the X2 offers sharper handling, making it easy to drive on crammed roads and tight spaces. Its 302-hp four-pot enhances its performance even more and its racier bodywork and roofline add to it. Even though the interior space is limited compared to its sibling, the X1, drivers who value performance above all else should go for the X2.
Compact: Toyota RAV4 Hybrid
With full-electric and hybrid vehicles taking over the market and disrupting the automotive industry, it’s no surprise that Toyota (the hybrid-car specialist of the industry) has introduced the all-new 2021 RAV4 Hybrid and Prime, the plug-in hybrid version of RAV4. Compared to their counterparts, the RAV4 Hybrid offers better fuel efficiency and, in the case of Prime, a respectable electric-only driving range.
Mid-Size: Honda Passport
Capable, spacious, capable, and worth every penny, the 2021 Honda Passport checks everything you would want from a mid-size SUV. Taking mechanical inspiration from the three-row Pilot and Ridgeline pickup, the Honda Passport is completely modern, with plenty of optional tech features and standard safety equipment. Featuring a powerful V-6 engine that is powerful in all models, it boasts spacious and practical interiors. Although it offers an average fuel economy, it still ranks as one of our highest-rated SUVs.
