There are two categories that ask.cars.com suggest Sports Utility Vehicle’s are divided into; compact and mid-size. They have some suggestions that were very obvious to me and some not so obvious. Cars.com states:
“I’d recommend the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape and Toyota RAV4 in that group (compact), with the CR-V being my pick of the bunch. If you went with the Honda I’d almost suggest buying because they have rock-solid resale and you’ll be kicking yourself when you turn it in.
In the mid-size segment, the Saturn Vue (not really a compact), Mazda CX-7 and Ford Edge would be my recommendations. All three are cool-looking and have decent power. The CX-7 has the best engine of the three, and it’s standard. There have been some early problems reported with the CX-7, so leasing would probably be a good idea. Otherwise it’s my personal favorite — I almost bought it myself had the wife not opted for a Subaru Outback instead. The Saturn is too new for reliability reports, but it’s very nice when you opt for the leather interior. ”
