SUVs Under $25,000 With Key Safety Systems Standard

It doesn't require paying luxury prices to get key safety equipment

2020 Hyundai Kona is one of the SUVs Under $25,000 With Key Safety Systems Standard

Finding an SUV with standard advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) for under $25,000 is quite the challenge. Many manufacturers make these safety systems optional on the most affordable vehicles, and sometimes the equipment isn't even available on some of the higher trim levels. 

Still, there are options for savvy shoppers who want safety without breaking the bank. 

Below is a curated list of the SUVs with standard ADAS features that are available for less than $25,000. All of them have forward collision warning (FCW) and city- and highway-speed automatic emergency braking (AEB). Some also have pedestrian detection systems and/or blind spot warning (BSW).
