This SUV is equally happy in the city and in the country. The tall ride height and AWD make snowy and bumpy roads a breeze, while the narrower frame makes navigating crowded city streets a cinch. The Forester comes with seating for five passengers and 69 cubic-feet of cargo space.
The Ford Escape Hybrid is quite the exception to the gas-guzzling SUV stereotype. This eco-friendly vehicle gets 34 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. It runs on an electric motor and a 2.5-liter four cylinder engine. There’s comfortable seating for five and a respectable 65 cubic-feet of cargo space.
If you do a lot of your driving in wet or cold weather, consider this crossover. The Honda CR-V performs exceptionally well under slick circumstances. Seating for all five passengers is ample and well supported. You’ll get a generous 73 cubic-feet of storage space for all of your odds and ends.
If you want an SUV that’s fun to drive, try the Nissan Murano. It runs on a 3.5-liter V6 engine, which cranks out 240 horsepower and 244 pound-feet of torque. Want to tow a heavy load? No problem. The Murano can tow as much as 3,500 pounds of trailer weight.
Arguably the original crossover, the Outback promises exceptional stability and control thanks to its low center of gravity and all-wheel drive. Look for the 2.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine and you’ll be rewarded with a feisty 243 horsepower. This SUV fits five people and 66 cubic-feet of your stuff.
