A wide windshield and high seating give drivers an excellent view of their surroundings. The Forester is also full of amenities like entertainment systems and climate control that allow drivers and passengers alike to make the most of their journey. With plenty of cargo room and comfort options, this crossover is both practical and enjoyable.

Kia Sorento

The Kia Sorento combines safety and flexibility in a crossover that’s as fun to drive as it is reliable. The Sorento is easy and intuitive to operate, and it drives more like a car than a truck. You can save on gas with 22 city and 29 highway miles per gallon, and the cabin provides a quiet, comfortable ride.

Hyundai Santa Fe

One of the most unique safety features of the Santa Fe is the Safe Exit Assist, which prevents drivers and passengers from exiting the vehicle if another one is approaching. An easy-to-use entertainment system makes the Santa Fe even more fun.

Honda CR-V

If you’re looking for a crossover that’s convenient for shopping or traveling, the CR-V is worth a look. The CR-V not only has large, comfortable seating, but also a spacious cargo area. You can use the hands-free power liftgate to open the trunk no matter how much you’re carrying, while the low cargo clearance makes it easy to load the CR-V without having to lift items too high.
