We remember a time when SUVs were thought to be too bulky, heavy, and inefficient to have any kind of staying power. Now the roads and parking garages around Los Angeles are jammed with SUVs of every brand, shape, size, and description. That’s a good thing (plenty of choices!) and a bit of a problem (too many choices?) at the same time, but the dealerships of Keyes Cars can help you find the perfect fit. Here are our top three choices for the best SUVs of 2019.
Why SUVs are Unique
Why the glut of SUVs? You get more passenger space than in many sedans, a comfortable ride height, and enough cargo space to satisfy bargain hunters, adventurers, and workers alike. AWD makes for great traction, and many SUVs now use unibody construction for lighter weight and agile handling. Many shoppers find it’s a winning combination.
Our Favorite New SUVs
City Slicker: 2019 Toyota C-HR
Compact but not too small, stylish but not polarizing, and fuel efficient without being stingy on performance — no wonder people love the 2019 Toyota C-HR. The newest Toyota crossover’s small size is ideal for city driving, but there’s enough space inside for weekend getaways too.
Something for Everyone: 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe
New for this year, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe takes the place of the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. It offers two rows of seating (an XL trim offers a third row for this year only, and will be replaced by another new Hyundai SUV next year), an impressive roster of standard equipment, and all the safety and reliability on which the Hyundai brand is built.
Luxury and Performance: 2019 Audi Q5
The 2019 Audi Q5 offers something unique: balance. It splits the difference between compact and larger three-row SUVs, finds a perfect balance between luxury and performance, and pulls together an excellent roster of standard and optional features for easy customization. Opt for Quattro AWD, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, and much more.
