U.S. News and World Report Best Cars: Cheapest 3-Row SUVs list

Space is at a premium. More space translates into higher prices, whether it involves real estate or vehicles, so finding a quality SUV that can seat seven or more passengers without breaking the bank is a tall order. Chevrolet of Indianapolis and Mitsubishi of Bloomington have put together a list of five affordable SUVs with three rows of seating for you.

2018 Chevrolet Traverse

Cheapest 3-row SUVs

Responsive handling is one of the first things to go in SUVs, especially those that can seat three rows of passengers. The 2018 Traverse utilizes the recent advances in engineering and technology to minimize these types of tradeoffs. The result is a spacious SUV with three rows of seats that handles more like a sedan. Many high-tech electronics are also included in the standard model, so you don’t have pay more out of pocket for what you want. It’s hard to go wrong with Chevrolet’s 2018 Traverse.

2018 Kia Sorento

The 2018 Kia Sorento is another great model in the passenger SUV class. The Sorento’s design has convenience in mind. It has good gas mileage while driving smoothly and quietly. The infotainment system’s seamless device integration functionality and overall ease of use let you focus more on your passengers and less on your car.

The Sorento differs compared to other three-row seating SUVs by optimizing its interior for passenger comfort. The small exchange of cargo room for passenger space is ideal for those who spend more time transporting and less time hauling.

2017 Nissan Rogue

2017 Nissan Rogue

The 2017 Nissan Rogue may be one year older than the other models on this list, but that doesn’t make it a poor choice. The standard model’s interior is designed with high-quality materials and boasts numerous compact, convenient, and cleverly placed storage compartments.

It has excellent fuel efficiency compared to others in its class, too. Finally, the 2017 Rogue is one of the safest rides around, with pedestrian detection systems and adaptive cruise control options available. Nissan offers a wide selection of other high-tech safety features to enhance the security of you and your passengers.

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander

Check out the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander if you’re tired of adding on numerous options just to make the standard model of your new vehicle on par with others. More features come standard in this three-row SUV than almost any other make.

It also comes with a comprehensive warranty right out of the box and above-average gas mileage. The 2018 Outlander is an inexpensive three-row seater if you want a great vehicle, without jumping through hoops to get the functionality you want.

2018 Dodge Journey

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander

One of the 2018 Journey’s main advantages is its low price point. All the three-row seating SUVs on this list are inexpensive, but the Journey is among the least pricey. That doesn’t mean it skimps on features or is built poorly, either.

In fact, the Dodge Journey’s standard model includes the third row, unlike some SUVs, and has one of the more comfortable interiors in this category. The infotainment system is responsive and convenient, and it has plenty of storage and passenger space.
