The 15 Most Popular SUVs Right Now

July 19, 2012

This week, I've gathered a list of the 15 most popular SUVs and Crossovers on the market right now.

Just because a vehicle is popular doesn't necessarily mean it's the best, but these vehicles tend to hold their value better, and it's easier to find parts later down the road when maintenance and repairs start becoming an issue.

Right now, the Ford Escape is the most popular SUV, selling nearly 30,000 units last month. The Honda CR-V comes in a distant second followed by the Chevrolet Equinox and Toyota RAV-4.

When shopping for the best price, I recommend you use the CarWoo Deal Finder.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
