Best Rated SUV For 2009
There are numerous things you’ve got to consider before getting a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV). Unlike sedans and hatchbacks, SUVs are, obviously, bigger and heavier motor vehicles. As many SUV owners never use the off-road capabilities of their vehicle, latest SUVs now have lower ground clearance and suspension designed mainly for paved roads. It’s best if you want to carry cargo or if you’ve got quite a few travelers to drive in it. While choosing for a specific SUV, you have to think of space, fuel economy, comfort, drive quality and other similar standards.
Based on all of these aspects here are the best rated SUVs.
After being in the SUV market for more than 10 years since it was first introduced, the RAV4 maintains a strong reputation for reliability, safety and interior comfort. Rav4 is offered with the most powerful power-train in the compact-SUV class. It is worth a look for its comfortable seating that can accommodate up to seven grown ups with a very impressive cargo room, few improvements, and road approach. Owing to a larger and more powerful four-cylinder engine and additional upgrades for 2009, the RAV4 is closely outscored the Subaru Forester to remain as the Top Pick for the third straight year. This four-cylinder version obtains the best fuel economy of any automatic. Although its fuel economy positions it in the top half of its category, it still can’t compete with other efficient competitors. It provides a responsive handling, roomy and quiet interior, a comfortable ride, and an optional third-row seat. The RAV4 is worth $23,000 to $30,000.
The Toyota Highlander is a well-designed, family-friendly mid-size SUV. Sharing its base platform with the Toyota Camry and Avalon, the second-generation of Highlander brags respectable fuel economy for its category, available with the third-row seats and a smooth, car-like ride.
