2019 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2019 Toyota C-HR

Both Toyota SUVs have a lot to offer busy families. The C-HR is the smaller of the two options while the RAV4 has been a higher selling model. 

  Starting Price MPG Seats Cargo Space Towing Capacity
2019 Toyota RAV4 $26,650 26/35 5 37.6 cubic-feet Up to 3,500 lbs.
2019 Toyota C-HR $21,145 27/31 5 19 cubic-feet 1,030 lbs.

The 2019 RAV4 and C-HR have a lot to offer in the crossover SUV segment. If towing is most important or you need more cargo space, then you'll want a RAV-4. However, if the price is your primary criteria, you can't go wrong with a C-HR.

2019 Hyundai Kona vs. 2019 Hyunda Santa Fe XL

Again, we have two models to compare from the same manufacturer. The Kona is the smaller of the two options for best SUV crossover and the Santa Fe XL was replaced by the Palisade in 2020.

  Starting Price MPG Seats Cargo Space Towing Capacity
2019 Hyundai Kona $19,990 28/32 5 19.2 cubic-feet Up to 1,104 lbs.
2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL $30,950 18/25 7 13.5 cubic-feet 2,000 lbs.

There's a substantial price difference between these two Hyundai models. Obviously, if you're on a tighter budget and don't need a large SUV, opt for the Kona. Those who need room for seven passengers will want to spend more on the 2019 Santa Fe XL.

2019 Ford Escape vs. 2019 Ford EcoSport

Of the two Ford models competing as the best crossover SUV, the EcoSport is much lower in price and smaller.

  Starting Price MPG Seats Cargo Space Towing Capacity
2019 Ford Escape $24,105 23/30 5 34 cubic-feetUp to 2,000 lbs.
2019 Ford EcoSport $19,995 27/29 5 19 cubic-feetUp to 2,000 lbs.

The 2019 Ford Escape is more fun to drive with a better exterior design. While the EcoSport has less cargo space, the low price and exceptional fuel economy make it a winner.

2019 Chevy Blazer vs. 2019 Chevy Equinox

In the Chevy lineup for best crossover SUV, we have the Blazer which is slightly larger than the Equinox model.

  Starting Price MPG Seats Cargo Space Towing Capacity
2019 Chevy Blazer $28,800 22/27 5 30.5 cubic-feetUp to 4,500 lbs.
2019 Chevy Equinox $23,800 28/39 5 29.9 cubic-feetUp to 3,500 lbs.

For a bit of nostalgia, and a fresh redesign with loads of curb appeal, the Chevy Blazer is for you. Owners of the Equinox get the best of all worlds. It comes in $5k less than the Blazer while offering similar towing capacity and cargo space. More importantly, it gets better fuel economy.

2019 Kia Sorento vs. 2019 Kia Sportage

The 2019 Kia Sorento might cost more than the Sportage, but it also offers a third row.

  Starting Price MPG Seats Cargo Space Towing Capacity
2019 Kia Sorento $26,290 22/29 7 11.3 cubic-feetUp to 5,000 lbs.
2019 Kia Sportage $23,750 23/30 5 30.7 cubic-feet1,650 lbs.

The 2019 Kia Sportage is great for saving gas money and hauling goods, but the Sorento offers more room and a higher towing capacity.

2019 Honda CR-V vs. 2019 Honda Passport

The 2019 Honda Passport is the larger option at a higher price, but the CR-V has a lot to offer.

  Starting Price MPG Seats Cargo Space Towing Capacity
2019 Honda CR-V $24,450 28/34 5 39.2 cubic-feet Up to 1,388 lbs.
2019 Honda Passport $31,990 20/25 5 50.5 cubic-feetUp to 5,000 lbs.

There's no comparing to the cargo space in a 2019 Honda Passport and the towing ability, but not everyone is thrilled with the price tag. If you want to spend less money both in cost of ownership and at the fuel pump, choose the 2019 Honda CR-V.

Best Luxury Crossover SUVs of 2019

Now, let's take a closer look at the differences between some of the top luxury crossover SUV models.

2019 Lincoln Nautilus vs. 2019 Lincoln MKC

Lincoln has been pumping out some amazing luxury crossover SUVs lately, and these are two of the top models.

  Starting Price MPG Seats Cargo Space Towing Capacity
2019 Lincoln Nautilus $40,340 21/26 5 37.2 cubic-feet 2,000 lbs.
2019 Lincoln MKC $33,995 20/27 5 25.2 cubic-feet 2,000 lbs.

Clearly, you will save more money to get behind the wheel of a 2019 Lincoln MKC, but you sacrifice cargo space to do so. The 2019 Lincoln Nautilus is the first of its name bringing a fresh new design and appeal to Lincoln SUVs. However, in 2020, Lincoln replaced the MKC with the Corsair.

2019 Audi Q5 vs. 2019 Audi Q3

The 2019 Audi Q5 is larger than the Audi Q3, but it contains fewer features to boast about.

  Starting Price MPG Seats Cargo Space Towing Capacity
2019 Audi Q5 $42,950 22/27 5 25.1 cubic-feet4,400 lbs.
2019 Audi Q3 $34,700 19/27 5 23.7 cubic-feetN/A

If you want maximum space, then the 2019 Audi Q5 is the better option. If the price is your primary motivator, you won't be disappointed with the Q3 instead.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC 350 vs. GLS 450

In the Mercedes lineup, you have a variety of SUVs to choose from, but these are two popular options.

  Starting Price MPG Seats Cargo Space Towing Capacity
2019 GLC 350 $53,700 22/27 5 19.4 cubic-feet4,850 lbs.
2019 GLS 450 $70,150 16/22 7 16 cubic-feetUp to 7,500 lbs.

While the GLS 450 is anything but small, it does come with a lot of seating room and plenty of pulling power. The 2019 GLC 350 is much more affordable with superior fuel economy.
