These Are the Best SUVs Under $25K in U.S. News Rankings

Crossovers and SUVs are the hottest segments of today's automotive landscape. While they're typically a bit more expensive than cars, they don't have to cost an arm and a leg. There are plenty of options with starting price tags well below $25,000.

For that price, you can get a high-quality, capable, and roomy SUV with two rows of seating and room for five. If you need more passenger space, you’ll have to pay a bit more than $25,000 for a vehicle such as the highly ranked 2017 Kia Sorento ($25,600), as the only 3-row models for less than $25,000 score poorly in our rankings.

Take a look at the following slides to see a selection of SUVs that have low starting prices and hold positions in the top tier of their classes in our new car rankings.

This list is based on U.S. News scores, which are updated constantly as new expert reviews and data become available, so the scores listed here may be slightly different from the ones listed on our site.
