Comparing the 2014 affordable SUVs with 2 rows is quite a challenge since there are so many different models that are currently available on the market. In creating the list below, we considered features, reviews written by authority figures and prices, all in order to create a list that is useful and that you can consider.
2014 Honda CR-V
The 2014 Honda CR-V is definitely number one on this list. It is a ranking that is based on a really strong analysis since there were various test drives with the SUV and many reviews written online. The CR-V is roomy and has a very comfortable interior. The performance is highly solid and there are many different standard features that are included. For instance, you get the rearview camera as standard. The only problem is that you are going to lack in some powerful engine options but you do get a lot of storage space.
2014 Buick Encore
You do not hear about Buick much but with the affordable SUVs with 2 rows, it is hard not to mention the 2014 Buick Encore. It has an instantly noticeable upscale interior and many standard features that will get you interested. The fuel economy offered is really good and Encore has great safety ratings, all combined with an upscale interior. The only problem is that there is small cargo hold space and the acceleration is a little sluggish.
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is very good as it offers a great combo of off-road performance and comfort. We have to say that this model is better than the two above if you are mostly interested in going off-road, all while being surrounded by a really high quality interior. It is great for families and not just that. The back seats are roomy and comfortable and the only problem that we can mention is that we have smaller cargo hold space when compared with many of the midsize SUVs.
2014 Mazda CX-5
The 2014 Mazda CX-5 is an SUV that you will find really engaging to drive. This is something that all reviewers said and it is hard to get everyone pleased. The fuel economy you get is quite great and you will appreciate the roomy cabin. The SUV is really good for a family but you may not want to go in areas where you never went before since the navigation system is a little confusing.
2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid
This Subaru model is the last one that we compare at the moment. The option is highly affordable and you will definitely appreciate the fact that safety data makes the SUV highly attractive. The 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid is reliable, has very good fuel economy, includes all-wheel drive as standard, comes to the table with so many different standard features and has a very quiet cabin. The only problem is that less cargo space is noticed as compared to other models in the price range.
