Top Ten SUVs 2010

SUVs are usually meant for large families which is why the manufacturers are sure to include a lot of space in terms of seating and storage.

1. Chevrolet Traverse

The Chevrolet Traverse has four doors and the ability to accommodate 8 passengers at the same time. The horsepower is great and the engine runs very smoothly. The speed requirements have been kept at par with that of a family which is why it doesn’t exactly go very fast. It costs about 28 thousand dollars.

 

2. Ford Escape

The Ford Escape has four doors as well but can seat on 5 passengers in one go. It is available in 6 different designs and therefore, models. The car can reach a speed of about 28 mpg and 22 mpg when the driver is on the highway and the city respectively. The Ford Escape is for 19 thousand dollars.

 

3. Hyundai Tucson

Similar to the Ford Escape, this SUV allows 5 passengers to sit comfortably and exit through 4 different doors. It is available in 9 models and the most popular one is the Limited Auto series. For a price of about 18 thousand dollars, it is quite reasonable and the engine is very reliable.

 

4. Honda CRV

A new model of the Honda CRV was introduced this year- it has 4 doors and can seat 5 people together. It comes along with a navigation system which is why it is slightly more expensive and will cost you about 25 thousand dollars.

 

5. Chevrolet Equinox

The Chevrolet Equinox entered the market with 8 models in tow out of which the LTZ AWD is most sought after this year. One can fill in 2.4 liters of fuel and reach a speed of 32 mpg even when the terrain is steep. It will cost you about 28 thousand dollars.

 

6. GMC Terrain

The GMC Terrain is large and has 4 doors which means that 6 people can easily fit in without having to stop breathing! It comes in 8 different models and the SLT2 AWD is the most popular when compared to the rest. Unlike the other SUVs, it can go pretty fast and the automatic transmission makes the drivers’ life much simpler.

 

7. Kia Sorento

Kia Sorento can cost you as much as 19 thousand dollars or 27 thousand dollars, depending on the model you select. That being said, the EX V6 4X4 is the best out of the lot- the engine will never give you any trouble and the maximum speed it can reach is pretty decent.

 

8. Honda Pilot

The Honda Pilot is slightly more expensive and can cost you about 40 thousand dollars bout you can be sure that you will be not disappointed. These high-end SUVs can reach a speed of 23 mpg and 17 mpg, depending on the terrain. The models have been improved for this year and the change is quite welcome.

 

9. Mazda Tribute

The Mazda Tribute has 4 doors and will accommodate 5 passengers. The Grand Touring series is said to be the best because it is slightly bigger than the rest. While the overdrive function is included in the features, it is always optional and the transmission is automatic, like always.

 

10. Honda Accord Crosstour

The Honda Accord Crosstour is pretty standard as far as SUVs are concerned. It has the usual 4 doors and basic accommodation. It is popular because of the inbuilt navigation system and its features that are state of the art.
