We know that finding the perfect SUV for your family can be a intimidating task. There are so many features to take into consideration and options to choose from. Our goal for this list is to bring the information that is most important to buyers (price, MPG and overall score) together into one uncluttered, comprehensive resource to help you compare SUVs. We may have missed an SUV or two (please contact us to let us know if we did), but we did our best to include all the vehicles that you’ll most likely consider for your family. All that said, SUVs that seat 7+ passengers are no longer just for large families as better fuel efficiency, improved handling and elegant new designs make these models attractive to a wider audience.

Many sources of information and lists of the “best SUVs” out there are biased towards a certain brand or accept payments for giving a vehicle a higher rating. Add to that all the marketing hype and over-promising advertisements seen on TV and on the internet. Our approach involves scoring cars based on aggregate ratings from a number of sources and the rest of the information provided are cold, hard facts.
