About 18 million shoppers visit Edmunds.com each month to find the vehicle that's right for them. Sport-utility vehicles (SUVs) are at the top of many shoppers' wish lists, so it should come as no surprise that some of the most researched vehicles on Edmunds.com are SUVs.
The 8 Most Popular SUVs on Edmunds.com
With so many new vehicles to choose from, it may be helpful to consult the wisdom of the crowd. Below are the SUVs that attracted the most vehicle shopper consideration in 2015, earning each of them a 2016 Most Popular on Edmunds.com award. We expect these carpoolers, boat haulers, back-road explorers and luxury lookers to be popular in 2016, too. We've listed them alphabetically by carmaker and model and provided a capsule expert review of each.
Offering familiar comfort, value and performance plus a slew of updates this year, the 2016 Acura MDX is a top pick among three-row luxury crossovers.
Though the truck-based 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe is better than ever, its more carlike large-crossover rivals are still more spacious and sophisticated. They get better fuel economy, too. But if you want the brawn of a Chevy pickup truck and the luxury of three-row seating, the Tahoe hits the spot.
The 2016 Chevrolet Traverse checks nearly all the right boxes for a large crossover SUV and remains a worthy choice for consumers who need three rows of seating and expansive cargo room.
If you're shopping for a compact SUV, the 2016 Honda CR-V remains one of your best bets. A spacious, feature-packed cabin and ample cargo space outweigh the minor disappointment that the CR-V doesn't offer a more powerful engine.
The all-new, greatly improved 2016 Honda Pilot is a strong contender in the three-row crossover class. Some rivals may be sportier or more macho, but few can match the Honda's combination of passenger comfort and utility.
If you want a midsize SUV that does a little of everything, the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a prime candidate. Its well-trimmed cabin provides comfy seating, and it easily masters off-road trails and daily commutes alike.
If you're looking for the pinnacle of full-size SUV luxury, you'll find it in the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover.
Comfort and interior quality are still key strengths for the radically redesigned 2016 Lexus RX 350, but a more carlike driving experience helps broaden its appeal. We think the latest RX is a smart pick for a luxury crossover SUV.
