for free quote today beginning with two

row suvs

the 2020 subaru outback price range

between 26

and 40 000 overall miles per gallon 24

16 city 32 highway the outback is a

smart alternative to an suv

it has a 260 horsepower 2.4 liter turbo

engine

giving it effortless acceleration

there's also a 2.5 liter four-cylinder

the ride is comfortable handling is

responsive and secure

some tasks through the large

infotainment screen require more than

one step however

all versions get the eyesight safety

suite with standard forward collision

warning

and automatic emergency braking blind

spot warning is optional

next a 2020 ford edge price range

between 31 and 43 grand overall miles

per gallon 22

looking at 15 city 31 highway the edge

is a pleasant well-rounded vehicle with

agile handling and a steady ride the

standard engine is a two liter

four-cylinder turbo the cabin is very

quiet

largely devoid of road and wind noise

only the muted and pleasant hum of the

turbo 4 cylinder can be heard when

revved the copilot 360 system includes

forward collision warning automatic

emergency braking with pedestrian

detection as well as blind spot warning

which many competitors make optional or

not available on some trims

how about the 2020 lexus rx price range

between 44 and 56.5

overall mpgs 22 14 city 31 highway

the gas only rx 350 has a 3.5 liter v6

that gets around 22 miles per gallon

mixed driving there's also a

fuel thrifty 450 hybrid that gets an

excellent 29 miles per gallon

no matter which version you buy or how

it's equipped the rx's ride is

comfortable

plush and the cabin is very quiet and

well finished although now it has

android auto and apple carplay

compatibility the infotainment system is

controlled by

an awkward to use touchpad the suite of

advanced safety and driver assistance

features comes standard

you might like the nissan murano price

range between 31.5 and 45

000 overall mpg's 21 15 city 29 highway

this two row suv uses a punchy refined

3.5 liter v6 paired with a cvt

power delivery is prompt and effortless

the cabin is quiet well finished and has

an upscale feel

the rear seat is roomy and access is

easy rear and side visibility aren't

great however

an overly light steering feel reduces

driver confidence

for collision warning and automatic

emergency braking are standard but blind

spot warning is optional

always popular is a 2020 hyundai santa

fe price point between

26 and 39.5 overall miles per gallon 21

14 city 31 highway sounds familiar the

santa fe is a mid-sized suv

priced like a top trim compact suv which

can make it a bargain there's an

optional turbo engine there's also the

standard 2.4 liter engine which is

smoother and delivers power more

predictably

the suv is composed tied down handling

and responsive steering are impressive

the cabin is quiet disturbed only by

some engine noise when revving up

all versions get standard for collision

warning automatic emergency braking with

pedestrian detection

and blind spot warning and one more two

row suv the 2020 porsche cayenne

price range pretty steep between 66 and

164 thousand

overall miles per gallon 21 15 city 29

highway

few suvs can match the cayenne when it

comes to handling agility but the ride

has

an underlying firmness and some jolts

come through

with the base 3 liter v6 turbo

acceleration is robust once on the fly

but the cayenne exhibits some initial

hesitation off the line

and the rough engine stop start feature

undermines its smoothness

the infotainment system and other

controls are a bit tricky to use

interior fit and finish is impeccable

however the seats are very comfortable

and supportive

automatic emergency braking standard

blind spot warning and lane keeping

assist

are optional and now we move on to the

most reliable and fuel efficient

three-row suvs

for 2020 beginning with the kia sorrento

this price range between 27 and 42

thousand dollars overall miles per

gallon 22

14 city 31 highway sounds like some of

those two row suvs

they're fine sorrento comes standard

with seating for seven

though the compact third row is best for

kids as it usually is

it has a very smooth 290 horsepower 3.3

liter v6 with an eight-speed automatic

transmission

the cabin is quiet the first and second

rows are comfortable and supportive

and the ride is composed you'll find the

handling responsive in everyday driving

the controls are among the easiest to

use in the industry but advanced safety

systems like forward collision warning

automatic emergency braking and blind

spot warning aren't standard on

every trim from the outback to the

ascent

the 2020 subaru set is between 32 and 45

grand

overall moss per gallon 22 14 city 32

highway

subaru's three-row suv offers impressive

all-around performance with a smooth

ride functional interior

and slick power delivery it uses a

four-cylinder turbo engine in a segment

where v6s are dominant

but feels plenty quick the plush ride is

impressive even better than some luxury

cars

handling isn't a strong suit but the suv

remains under control even under duress

standard safety equipment includes

forward collision warning automatic

emergency braking with pedestrian

detection

but blind spot warning isn't available

on the base trim it's standard on the

other ones

we zoom zoom with the 2020 mazda cx-9

between 34 and 46 grand fuel economy

overall is 22 so

15 city 32 highway this stylish

mazda isn't just reliable it's also

quite engaging to drive

driving matters right thanks to his

nimble handling that makes it feel like

a smaller vehicle

power comes from a responsive 227

horsepower 2.5 liter turbo four-cylinder

made it to a smooth

six-speed automatic transmission the

ride is comfortable and the

well-finished cabin is comfortably

quiet though second row seating is

generous third row is tight

as usual mazda's dial control

infotainment system takes some time

to master but it's compatible with

android auto and apple carplay

for collision warning automatic

emergency braking with pedestrian

detection and blind spot warning are

standard now one of my favorites the

2020 toyota highlander between 34

6 and 50 grand overall fuel economy 22

miles per gallon 14 city 32 highway

the redesigned fourth generation

highlander retains its comfortable ride

and smooth powertrain handling is

marginally improved

interior fit and finish is upgraded

particularly in high trim versions

the smooth and punchy 295 horsepower v6

packs a lot of reserve power a hybrid

version is also available

the second row is very roomy but the

third row is tiny

controls are fairly easy to use and

toyota has finally made

android auto and apple carplay

compatibility standard

for collision warning and automatic

emergency braking with pedestrian

detection are standard but blind spot

warning

is optional and now the 2020 kia italia

ride between 32

and 44 grand overall fuel economy is 21

14 city 30 highway kia's three road

mid-size

suv is one of the best in the category

no doubt about it

it's slick 291 horsepower v6 and smooth

shifting 8-speed automatic transmission

combined to return right around 21 miles

per gallon as predicted

while it rides comfortably the big suv

isn't a sporty handler

with noticeable body rolls and turns the

controls are easy to use and the roomy

interior comes with several details that

are well thought out such as the

one touch fold slide second row seat

standard advanced safety systems include

for collision warning automatic

emergency braking with pedestrian

detection and blind spot warning

and now the 2020 hyundai palisade

between 32

and 47 thousand dollars fuel economy 21

miles per gallon mixed driving

15 city 29 highway the palisade shares

many components with the kia telluride

including its smooth 291 horsepower 3.8

liter v6 paired with an 8-speed

automatic transmission

the roomy cabin is quiet the palisade

rides comfortably but handling isn't

particularly

nimble the interior is filled with

thoughtful details and most controls are

easy to use

except for maybe the unintuitive push

button gear selector

standard safety systems include forward

collision warning automatic emergency

braking with pedestrian detection

and blind spot warning is optional the

20 20 honda pilot will be a fan favorite

between 31.6

and 50 grand overall miles per gallon

right there at the threshold for this

list 20 miles per gallon

13 city 28 highway the pilot is quick

comfortable and refined it's three row

seating configuration

roomy cabin and abundant interior

storage make it an extremely functional

vehicle

power comes from a 3.5 liter v6 rated at

280 horsepower

the ride is comfortable but the handling

is ungainly

a touch screen infotainment system is

frustrating to use for some

touring and elite trim levels get a

9-speed automatic transmission that

doesn't shift

as smoothly as you'd like and features a

push button gear selector that takes

some getting used to

all pilots come standard with forward

collision warning and automatic

emergency braking with pedestrian

detection

and last but not least the 2020 lexus

rxl

price range between 47 and 50 500

overall miles per gallon 20

12 city 30 on the highway this three row

version of the lexus rx

has the same comfortable ride slick

powertrain and good fit and finish but

it also has the same clumsy handling and

distracting controls

the standard rxl configuration seats

seven

the optional second row captions chairs

limit seating to six

there's a snug path from either side of

the vehicle to the tiny third

row seat it's really best for grade

school children if you do end up buying

this you'll probably enjoy the extra

cargo room

more than just the added seats while for

collision warning and automatic

emergency braking pedestrian detection

are standard

blind spot warning is optional so if

you're in the market for a reliable

fuel efficient mid-size suv whether it's

two rows or three rows maybe it's on

this list
