10 Vehicles Offering the Most Fun You Can Have in an SUV
Gone are the days when high performance and athletic reflexes are solely reserved for sports cars and coupes. Today, even the largest of SUVs boast stats and figures that would embarrass the hell out of the most expensive and capable supercars from years ago. High performance is becoming increasingly common as automakers are able to balance efficiency with power better than ever before.
In turn, this means that even the most practical of vehicles are now a blast to drive, and more companies are putting energy into pleasing those who desire the power and agility of a sports or performance car but cannot forfeit utility to obtain such a vehicle.
Kelley Blue Book assembled a list of what it believes are the 10 best vehicles, ranging from a tad over $20,000 to nearly $100,000, to suit those needs. Here they are, in the order given.
10. Mazda CX-5
The Mazda CX-5, arguably one of the best-looking crossovers on the market, isn’t the most powerful or the fastest. But it is one of the most agile and efficient, and it handles more like a compact car than a compact SUV. This makes it a load of fun in urban environments, where speed is second to handling, and at a little more than $21,000, it’s an affordable option in its segment that offers perhaps the most fun for the dollar.
