The heart of the sport utility vehicle market is the midsize SUV and crossover segment. They're highly sought-after for their five- to eight-passenger seating capacity, ability to carry cargo, available all-wheel drive, and elevated ride height – which provides excellent visibility and imparts a feeling of safety. 

All midsize SUVs are not created equal, though. Some are better overall. Some excel at specific tasks, such as off-road driving or towing. Prices in the segment start around $25,000 and climb to around $40,000. Top-trim levels can eclipse $60,000.
