Best Midsized SUVs Under $35,000 With Standard Safety Systems
These models have forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and blind spot warning
Higher-priced new cars and SUVs tend to come with more fancy conveniences and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), which might save your life or protect you better from injuries on the road. But many consumers looking for more affordable SUVs also want the best ADAS features they can get.
Consumer Reports is here to help you find the best ones that come with key safety systems standard. CR believes that forward collision warning (FCW), automatic emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection, and blind spot warning (BSW) should come standard on all models.
Even though automakers are making ADAS features available on more affordable SUVs, sometimes the safety technology isn’t standard on the base trim. That's why you don't see any models from a number of automakers, including Hyundai, Honda, Subaru, and Toyota, on this list. But there are options for savvy shoppers who want affordable SUVs with key safety equipment.
Below is our list of midsized affordable SUVs with starting prices from $25,000 to $35,000 that are recommended by CR and have standard FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, and BSW.
