What Are The Best Midsize SUVs For The Money?

Midsize SUVs are designed to balance feature diversity, seating space, and cargo capacity. With so many SUV options available, buyers are becoming more and more conscious of their vehicle’s cost-to-value ratio. The following four midsize SUVs rank among the best when it comes to value for money in 2019.

Mazda CX-9

The Mazda CX-9 was last updated in 2016, but the seven-seater is still one of the top options available in the midsize SUV market. With a 2.5-liter turbocharged I4 Engine, the Mazda CX-9 boasts up to 250 horsepower when running off 93 octane fuel. The CX-9 is fitted with a full suite of safety features, including lane-assistance, pre-collision auto braking, and adaptive driver-aid cruise control.

Unfortunately, the CX-9 multimedia system still hasn’t been updated to accommodate the latest head unit interfaces, such as Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

Toyota Highlander

If you’re looking for reliable, long-term drive capabilities, the Toyota Highlander is the SUV for you. The standard Highlander model includes a 2.7-liter I4 engine, but the most fuel-efficient option is actually the updated Highlander 3.4-liter V6 model. To further improve fuel economy, consider the eco-friendly Highlander hybrid variation.

With three rows of seating, the Highlander has no problem fitting up to eight passengers for long-haul journeys. The modular seating is easy to reconfigure if you need extra cargo space.

Honda Pilot

The Honda Pilot is another option for buyers with sizeable cargo or passenger requirements. The Honda Pilot Elite is a particularly strong offering, with room for seven passengers and nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space.

The Pilot Elite is powered by a V6 280-horsepower engine. With either front or four-wheel drive, the Pilot is capable of towing up to a 5000-pound load.

Audi Q7

If you’re looking to spend money on a luxurious midsize SUV, the Audi Q7 is the best value per dollar spent. With an extensive suite of in-cabin features and a three-row crossover powertrain, the Audi Q7 offers excellent performance across multiple functions.

The standard model Q7 has a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4. To increase fuel economy, consider upgrading to the V6 333-horsepower supercharged engine.
