Crossover SUVs dominate the car market in America. No matter what sort of needs you have, you can bet there's a crossover for sale that'll fit in your life perfectly. Some crossovers are better than others, and while most can satisfy the basic needs of your average buyer, only a select few stand out as truly great. These are the best crossovers for 2023 and 2024.
2024 Genesis GV70
The Genesis GV70 is an absolutely excellent crossover that blends the line between value and luxury, delivering high-class looks and a premium driving experience at a fraction of the price of competitors.
There are two turbocharged gas-powered engines available, including a V-6 model that makes 375 hp. There's also a purely electric model called the Electrified GV70, capable of 236 miles of range on a single charge. No matter which you choose, you're in for a pleasant experience.
2024 Porsche Macan
As far as fun crossovers go, you can't get much better than the Porsche Macan. Think of it more as a tall, very quick hot hatch than a crossover. Like every Porsche, it's dialed in and full of feedback.
When you're not carving canyons, the Macan performs well as a luxurious daily-driver, offering a smart cabin with lots of tech and comfort features. If we had to pick, we'd get the sporty GTS model, as it delivers the perfect balance of sportiness and speed.
2024 Genesis GV80
The Genesis GV80 is the perfect vehicle for those looking for the GV70's good looks and well-appointed cabin, but need something a bit bigger, with more seats. The GV80 comes standard with three rows, and like the GV70, comes with two gas-powered engine choices.
While most people will get by just fine with the base inline-four, we suggest springing for the available twin-turbo V-6. It makes a healthy 375 hp, enough to launch the big SUV to 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds.
2024 Honda CR-V
The Honda CR-V is one of the most compelling everyday vehicles on sale right now, offering a strong mix between comfort, driving pleasure, and new tech. It looks great, and has a cabin that outclasses cars thousands of dollars more expensive.
Whether you go for the base 1.5-liter turbocharged engine or the available hybrid trim, you're in for a good time. We prefer the hybrid as it's more powerful (with 204 hp) and more efficient.
2024 Kia Telluride
If you're looking for a three-row crossover on a budget, the Kia Telluride should be at the top of your list. It delivers good looks, a spacious, useful cabin, and standard V-6 power all for under 40 grand.
The 3.8-liter, 291-hp V-6 is paired to an eight-speed automatic and standard front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is an option, as is self-leveling rear air suspension.
2024 BMW X7
The BMW X7 is for the crossover shopper that wants it all. The flagship three-row has enough seats to sit you and your extended family, and enough space to bring along all their luggage. It can also tow 7500 pounds, enough for a large camper, boat, or another car.
At the same time the X7 is one of the most luxurious vehicle's in BMW's lineup, with soft leather and other high-quality materials inside. It rides nicely, but it can also handle itself in sporty situations.
2024 Toyota RAV4
The Toyota RAV4 is far from flashy, but there's a reason Toyota sells hundreds of thousands of examples every year: It's dependable, reliable, affordable transportation you know you can count on.
If we had to choose a trim, we'd go for the RAV4 Prime. It's a plug-in hybrid that pairs a 2.5-liter four-cylinder to two electric motors, enough for a combined 302 hp. The 0-60 sprint happens in just 5.6 seconds.
2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5
If you think now might be the time to go all-electric, consider the Hyundai Ioniq 5. Its futuristic retro-inspired looks, spacious cabin, and available all-wheel drive make it a smart choice for those ready to make the leap.
Up to 303 miles of range per charge helps quell range anxiety, and if you're the type who loves carving corners, there's also an N model that makes 641 hp.
2024 Kia EV6
If the sporty looks of the Kia EV6 don't win you over, perhaps some numbers will. In high-performance GT form, you get 576 hp from two electric motors, enough for a rocket-like 3.1-second sprint to 60 mph.
Range for the EV6 GT isn't great, at 206 miles per charge, according to the EPA. If that's what you care about most, go for the base rear-drive model. You get up to 310 miles of range per charge thanks to a 77.4-kWh battery pack.
2024 BMW X5
The BMW X5 gets all of the same praise as the X7, many of the same lovely features and dynamics into a smaller, more nimble package. You can option the X5 with three rows, but we'd only consider it if you plan on using that last row infrequently, as it's pretty tight back there.
We'd also recommend springing for the plug-in hybrid xDrive50e model. It might not sound glamorous, but the hybrid is a real sleeper, delivering 483 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
2024 Porsche Cayenne
Just because you need space in your crossover doesn't mean you need to give up on driving pleasure. The Porsche Cayenne brings the company's expert chassis, steering, and suspension tuning to an SUV that can move people and their luggage, or tow your track toy to the nearest circuit.
There are plenty of trim levels to choose from, including three hybrid models. Our favorite is the Turbo E-Hybrid, equipped with a twin-turbo V-8 and an electric motor that together make an astounding 729 hp.
2024 Mazda CX-50
The Mazda CX-50 is a fun, interesting alternative to the overly common Hondas and Toyotas of the world, offering similar features and comfort packed into a distinct design and complemented by an above-average driving experience.
While the base engine will work just fine for most people, we'd go for the available 256-hp turbo four-cylinder. It pairs well to the six-speed automatic, and makes passing slower traffic a breeze.
2024 Mazda CX-90
Like the idea of the CX-50 but need more space or more seats? There's also the Mazda CX-90. Aimed farther upmarket, it uses a longitudinal engine layout to better compete with true luxury brands.
Under the hood you'll find a new turbocharged straight-six engine making up to 340 hp, along with standard all-wheel drive. There's also a plug-in hybrid available that allows for up to 25 miles of driving on purely electric power, according to the EPA.
2024 BMW iX
The best thing BMW makes right now are its SUVs. And one of the company's best SUVs is the all-electric iX. Once you get over the funky looks you're treated to a lovely-driving crossover with a seriously well-designed interior and a BMW-like driving experience.
The base trim is capable of an impressive 324 miles per charge. If speed is more your thing, you can jump up to the M60 model that, thanks to its 610 hp, can sprint to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds.
2024 Hyundai Palisade
The Hyundai Palisade shares most of its design with the Kia Telluride, save for the styling. That means all of the same great features and dynamics for a very similar price.
Under the hood of every Palisade is the same 3.8-liter naturally aspirated V-6, rated at 291 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. Power gets to the front wheels via an eight-speed automatic as standard, though all-wheel drive is an option—perfect for those who deal with snow in the winter.
