See the Top-Scoring 3-Row SUVs From Our Best Cars for the Money Awards

If you’re not careful, shopping for a 3-row SUV can involve a lot of sticker shock. Walk onto a car lot and say you need something with three rows, and the salesperson is likely to show you something that costs about $45,000.

But don’t get trapped. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Many manufacturers affordable SUVs that nonetheless have that all-important third row that makes things like family road trips possible, and carpools that much more tolerable.

U.S. News created the Best Cars for the Money awards to help you find those affordable vehicles. Our awards highlight vehicles with the best combination of quality and value. We determined that by looking at initial cost, overall quality, and long-term ownership costs.
