Kelley Blue Book (KBB) recently released their list of the 10 best SUVs under $25,000 for 2016. According to KBB, the SUV segment is one of the fastest-growing automotive markets today thanks to their combination of space, elevated driving position and affordability.

All of the vehicles on KBB's list have a KBB Fair Purchase Price that starts below $25,000 as of February 2016. The Honda CR-V is ranked 1st on the list thanks to its roomy interior, reliability and efficiency. Other SUVs on the top 10 list include the 2016 Mazda CX-5, 2016 Kia Sorento, and 2016 Jeep Renegade.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
