The 6 Most Affordable SUVs You Can Buy

The popularity of SUVs continues to soar as they replace the traditional four-door sedan on America’s highways. They’re usually not an inexpensive option, however, with prices thousands of dollars higher than the cars that they’re replacing. Fortunately, though, there are several options that balance low prices with the utility of an SUV.

On the following pages, we’ll look at the six best SUVs with starting prices below $20,000. They’re the least expensive SUVs that you can buy, but several earn scores that beat vehicles costing much more. Though the SUVs on this list have base prices that start under $20,000, loading options can raise the cost of some of these models to nearly $30,000.

We’ve ordered the crossovers in this list based upon their overall scores in the U.S. News Best Cars rankings. We’re constantly updating our new car ratings as new information becomes available, so the scores you see on the following pages may not reflect the current numbers you see in our individual vehicle reviews.  

Now to the list of all the new SUVs you can buy for less than $20,000.
