Suv

  • Updated

Although its name is vaguely SUV-like, this is a station wagon, albeit with outdoors aspirations. A turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six and a 48-volt hybrid system supplants last year’s twin-turbo V-6. Returning 24 mpg, it has a refined, spirited and fun driving demeanor.

The new Bronco has been one of the most hotly anticipated new vehicles since rumors emerged that Ford was developing it. Returning after a 20-plus year absence, the new Bronco’s retro-influenced styling gives it a cool factor that’s hard to replicate. Modern amenities make it far more livable day to day than the iconic-but-basic classic Bronco.

Crossover SUVs, often just large hatchback cars with raised suspension, have been wildly popular for years. Auto showrooms are overrun with them. But in 2020, the auto industry seemed to rediscover SUVs and trucks that were built more for rocky trails than paved parking lots.

You might think an SUV is the only way to get all-wheel drive and lots of family-duty versatility. But Toyota has offered all-wheel drive on its Sienna minivan for more than a decade now. That’s also true for the redesigned 2021 Sienna. Notably, the Sienna is now exclusively a hybrid. Its four-cylinder hybrid powertrain isn’t overly powerful — it has 245 horsepower — but it does provide an attractive EPA-estimated 35-36 mpg in combined city/highway driving.

The Ford Explorer, which is fully redesigned for 2020, is well suited for towing. Unlike most other three-row crossover SUVs, it has a rear-wheel-drive architecture, which can help with towing stability. It also comes with a variety of engine choices and a 10-speed automatic transmission to balance power with fuel economy.

The pick for the under $20,000 category is a good one, but unfortunately, it’s not going to be one that you can buy new for long. It’s the Honda Fit, and the big H has already confirmed its death for the U.S. market. Its inclusion in this list makes sense, though, because when it comes to reliability, resale value and safety, Honda is usually a safe bet. The bonus is that the Fit is plenty nice to drive and gets excellent gas mileage.
