Here Are the Top Contenders From the U.S. News Best 2-Row Midsize SUV for the Money Awards

Most of us must stick to a budget, especially when it comes to large purchases like a new vehicle. However, a car is something we have to live with on a daily basis — often for many years — so being unsatisfied is not acceptable.

Saving money on your new SUV by cutting corners and not doing the necessary research may leave you unhappy, and could lead to costly repairs, safety concerns, and low resale value. Luckily, an inexpensive SUV is not necessarily one that lacks value.

There are a few vehicles in our 2-Row SUV rankings that stand out for being budget-friendly, having low long-term ownership costs, and providing plenty of features and performance to satisfy most buyers. To save you time and frustration, our U.S. News Best Car for the Money awards seek out the vehicles in each class with the best combination of quality and value.

To measure quality, we use the U.S. News overall scores from our rankings, which factor in expert reviews from the automotive press, as well as safety and reliability data. To measure value, we use TrueCar average transaction prices and Vincentric five-year total cost of ownership data.

Keep in mind that we update our scores regularly as new expert reviews and data become available. So, the scores in this slideshow may not match the scores in our rankings.
