Car and Driver Logo By Car and Driver of Car and Driver | Slide 1 of 23: Like heavy-metal music and the Vitamix food processor, the mid-size crossover-SUV segment has for decades courted an unwavering legion of devotees. Often offering rugged personalities and some promise of off-road capability, these vehicles can provide most of the features that active families want without breaking the household budget. Once almost entirely composed of truck-based entries, this segment is now largely made up of vehicles based on fully modern chassis and powertrains that offer ride quality and efficiency unthinkable just a few years ago. Still, two traditional body-on-frame mid-sizers remain, faithfully offering the same honest and familiar values as when the segment was born last century. Whether it’s a true off-road beast or something roomy in which to schlep around the family, the current crop of mid-size crossover SUVs can fill the bill. Read on to see how they stack up.
