Some of those features include hybrid engines, advanced digital radios, enhanced safety, and improved interior designs. To embrace all that the industry has to offer, consider these top five sports utility vehicles of 2020.
The most recent model of the Honda CRV comes equipped with a hybrid engine. The turbocharged,1.5-liter four-cylinder was formerly only available with the most expensive versions, but now it can be found in the standard model as well. Honda discontinued the previous basic model that came with a non-turbocharged engine, due to popular demand. The latest version of the standard CR-V includes the best safety features that Honda has to offer. Even the most affordable version of the popular SUV has adaptive cruise control and collision prevention technology, making it among the safest sports utility vehicles on the market. It has a sleek new interior and exterior layout, as well as larger storage capacity. Overall, this SUV has a wonderful combination of fuel efficiency, utility, performance, and comfort.
A spacious SUV with three-rows of seating, this vehicle can comfortably accommodate up to eight people. The Honda Pilot was built with sophisticated technological features that can improve your road trips. Those features include heated seats with ventilation, power moonroof, and a hands-free power tailgate. There are six versions of the Honda Pilot available: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, Elite, and Black Edition. All models have a 3.5-liter V6 engine that promotes power while sustaining excellent fuel mileage. A six-speed automatic transmission is included with the basic model, with a nine-speed transmission upgrade option for the more expensive versions.
This large SUV was redesigned in 2018, giving it a brand new appearance and a boost of technology. Those significant alterations have made the Ford Expedition a top contender for the best sports utility vehicle. This SUV is known for its immense power, spacious cargo, and strong towing ability. Advanced safety features such as the pre-collision assist, automatic braking, and blind-spot information system make this one of the safest vehicles around. With the heavy-duty tow package option, it can tow up to 9,300-lbs. All that power and these sports utility vehicles still have impressive gas mileage when compared to similar models. The 2020 Ford Expedition is available in five different basic versions: Standard, Legendary King Ranch, Stealth Edition, Texas Edition, and FX4 Off-Road Edition. Each one of those models has alternate versions, such as the Legendary King Ranch Max and Platinum Max. Every upgrade comes with their individual, unique features and improvements.
The upscale features offered in the Audi Q5 are just as great as the luxury appeal. A 7-inch touch screen infotainment system is included with the standard model, while an 8.3-inch screen and navigation system are optional. It boasts an impressive 252-hp turbocharged four-cylinder with a seven-speed transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive. The advanced suspension allows for comfortable city driving and off-road adventure, with or without the adaptive suspension package added. The safety features have not improved much since last year, but it does still have the standard driver-assistance technology. Those safety features include forward collision warning and automated braking. Drivers that desire more safety features will be happy to know that they can get adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and blind-spot monitoring in the upgraded models.
This mid-size SUV is popular for its affordable value, advanced safety features, and well-equipped interior. The standard model itself comes with forward-collision warning, emergency braking, lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. All of which are typically not included in other brand's standard model of sports utility vehicles. The impressive interior features rear seat heaters, ventilated front seats, and a digital gauge cluster. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder does not provide as much power as its rivals do, but it does get much better gas mileage at 29mpg. There is an option for a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine for drivers that desire more horsepower. The Santa Fe offers generous passenger space that can be perfect for long road trips. This vehicle is excellent for anyone that wants a spacious, well-built SUV without an expensive price tag.
There are many sports utility vehicles out there, but few are equipped with the superior features offered in the SUVs listed above. Those vehicles are created with the most advanced safety features, top-notch infotainment systems, and powerful engines to keep you moving forward.
