Remember the minivan? Neither do we. For those of us who need more seating and storage than a Porsche 911 has to offer, now is the time of the SUV, all the SUVs: luxury, midsize, crossover, small, luxury coupe, and a variety of hybrid SUVs. That’s a virtual jungle of Sport Utility Vehicles, a jungle that is difficult to traverse when looking for the best SUV deals available. Here we will show you the best in 2018 SUV deals.

Frankly, if you’re not getting 0.9% financing over at least 36 months, then your dealer isn’t even trying. Today is a buyer’s market, and you should demand the same deal being offered on any side of the autopark streets. So, once you’ve established dominance with your dealer, which 2018 SUV has the most bang for your buck?

The Kia Sportage isn’t the biggest name on the block, but the Korean car manufacturer is fast becoming an option to be reckoned with. It’s a sturdy and safe option within the SUV class, boasting a four-cylinder engine (with a turbocharged four available) plus the digital entertainment you’d expect from a luxury class with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay ready to play you down the highway.

SMALL WITH A KICK

If you’re looking for a small, or subcompact, SUV then the 2018 Ford EcoSport’s for you. With the option of  a base turbocharged 3- or 4-cylinder engine with industry-leading acceleration and fuel economy, plus an 8-inch touch screen with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, this little fella can certainly play with the big boys.

COMPACT WITH PERFORMANCE

For compact SUVs the Chevrolet Equinox has been redesigned for 2018, and you can max out the options with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine plus all the digital amenities, plus a Wi-Fi hot spot and satellite radio. The Chevrolet Equinox is compact in stature, but certainly not in performance.

GET LUXURIOUS
