After discussing the best affordable SUVs with 2 rows, it is normal to also talk about the 2014 models that have 3 rows, are affordable and are highly recommended by specialists from all around the world. In creating this list we only took into account the 2014 models. Some of the 2015 models are a little better but they are still not available on the market, even if announced.
2014 Buick Enclave
It is hard not to be impressed by the 2014 Buick Enclave. Handling is refined and there is only one word that can define the interior: “classy”. You will love the fact that the safety score is excellent and among all affordable midsize SUVs, this model gets top recommendations. The SUV will be highly appreciated by families. The only problem is that we have difficulty when maneuvering the SUV in a tight space.
2014 Hyundai Santa Fe
The first thing that people notice with the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe is the really high quality interior. This SUV is a refined ride that has many interesting standard features, all backed by a strong warranty. It is hard to not think about this vehicle when making a list of affordable SUVs with 3 rows since it is comfortable and even the sports model has enough cargo space. The only thing that you may not like is the complicated navigation system but you can get around that with ease after some time.
2014 Dodge Durango
What is interesting with this SUV is that it manages to shine where the competition does not. It has a really smooth powertrain and the handling is highly refined. You will surely appreciate the intuitive Uconnect infotainment system and the only thing that you will not appreciate is the mediocre cargo space even for a 3 rows SUV. However, we are looking at an SUV that offers great performance and a ride that is highly comfortable. That is why so many currently love it and think about buying one.
2014 Nissan Rogue
The newly redesigned 2014 Nissan Rogue is the last SUV that we have to recommend. That is mainly because of the fact that it is capable of great fuel economy while offering you a ride that is really comfortable. You will surely love the polished cabin, even if the powertrain is not actually as refined as it should be. You gain access to a lot of cargo space though and many will not be bothered by the modest engine power delivered. However, you may be a little bothered by the noisy CVT since that is not something that anyone appreciates.
These are the top affordable SUVs with 3 rows that have to be respected. As always, we do want to hear from you and see what you like. Is the SUV that you like the most from this category not on the list? Let us know through a comment.
