Looking for the perfect crossover and don’t know where to start in a crowded marketplace? Well, look no further because you have come to the right place. These are the top five crossover SUVs in America as rated by Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports is a trusted source for unbiased and critical reviews. Their scores are based on a variety of factors that balance handling, ride, braking, fuel economy, exploration, interior and exterior, and other considerations. These five vehicles have been chosen as the top performing models among many other cars in the same class. If you’re looking for a crossover or SUV, make sure to put these models on your list.
1. Subaru Crosstrek
The Subaru Crosstrek is a raised five-door crossover based on the previous generation Impreza hatchback that impressed the world. This crossover model sports a classy appearance and should be perfect for those who are looking for anything that’s not big and bulky. The car has an elevated ride height and capable handling on mud, snow, back roads, and more.
While the cabin could be quieter when you’re running the engine, this 148 hp, 2.0 L four-cylinder engine car has more than decent fuel economy for a crossover with 26 mpg. The hybrid variant, however, can squeeze out 28 mpg but has been discontinued as of late. This bold and fun crossover has managed to live up to its predecessor’s reputation and is definitely worth checking out.
