10 Best SUVs You Can Buy Right Now
These high-scoring models do well in performance, reliability, safety, and owner satisfaction
SUVs continue to be wildly popular in the U.S., and for good reasons. These higher-riding vehicles feature some characteristics most cars lack, such as a commanding view of the road, available (or sometimes standard) all-wheel drive, some level of off-roading ability, and a more rugged appearance.
So what are the very best SUVs of any size you can buy today? To find out, we compiled a list of SUVs ranked by top Overall Scores, according to Consumer Reports’ ratings. Our Overall Score encompasses a vehicle’s performance in our road tests, which includes more than 50 detailed evaluations at CR’s Auto Test Center; the latest results from the reliability and owner satisfaction sections of CR’s exclusive Annual Auto Surveys; the availability of forward collision warning (FCW), automatic emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection, and blind spot warning (BSW); and results from government and insurance-industry crash tests if they’re available.
