Midsize suv 2014

Midsize suv 2014 DEFAULT

SUVs quickly took over for station wagons, and now crossover utility vehicles seem to drawing from SUVs, but there is still robust demand for larger, practical vehicles that can seat numerous people and their stuff. Arguably, there has actually never been a better time to be looking in the SUV market — they’re getting better fuel economy than ever before, while offering stronger performances in just about every aspect.

“Available in 2- and 3-row formats with seating for 5, 6, 7 or 8, the midsize SUV segment offers a wide range of vehicles spanning the gap between the more defined compact and full-size SUV segments,” Kelley Blue Book said, prefacing a list of what it determined to be the ten best midsize SUVs for 2014.

It didn’t say explicitly, but KBB generally uses its value and cost of ownership models on which to make such decisions. Those factors and calculations — which include fuel economy, insurance premiums, maintenance costs, and sticker price — led to the following list of SUVs for your perusal.

Ford Flex 2014

10. Ford Flex

Ford’s quirky SUV is meant to form a bridge between SUV and wagon, but it definitely leans to the side of SUV. Its squared-off profile and unique appearance distinguish it from just about everything else in Ford’s lineup, and belies the Flex’s car-like mannerisms that help set it apart from other utility vehicles. “In addition to standout styling that appeals to buyers who aren’t into blending in, the Flex has seating for seven and enough cargo space to carry three surfboards … in the cabin,” KBB pointed out.

Kia Sorento

9. Kia Sorento

Despite being Kia’s largest SUV offering, the Sorento is still smaller than many of its competitors — yet it still boasts a third-row seat. This makes it particularly appealing for those living in urban environments, as its easier to maneuver and features better fuel economy than others in its class. “Those compact dimensions are paired with big Kia value, thanks to a bevy of features, competitive prices and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty,” KBB said.

Hyundai Santa Fe

8. Hyundai Santa Fe

The Hyundai Santa Fe is closely related to the Sorento, and like the smaller Santa Fe Sport, the full-size SUV “benefits from handsome styling, tons of features and an even more spacious, well-appointed interior.” It can be optioned to seat six or seven people, the latter being standard and the former being available with middle-row captain’s seats. At under $30,000, the Santa Fe has as much versatility as it does value thanks to a bevy of standard features, according to the KBB.


7. Dodge Durango

Perhaps the biggest perk of the Dodge (FIATY.PK) Durango is its class-leading towing capacity, and for some, its distinctly masculine and “truck-like persona” that its rivals seem to lack. Available with a 3.6 liter V6, or a 5.7 V8, the Durango can suite a multitude of needs, but it will be interesting to see if Dodge makes use of the 3.0 liter diesel made available in the Ram 1500 which offers nearly 30 miles per gallon on the highway (at least in that application).

Ford Explorer

6. Ford Explorer

The Explorer has long been one of the most popular SUVs in the States, and for good reason. “The iconic name remains, but today’s Explorer is more comfortable and more efficient than the truck-based models that forged the category last century,” KBB said. “The engine lineup has evolved, too. In addition to a 290-horsepower V6 similar to what’s offered in its competitors, the Explorer is also available with a more fuel-efficient turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, or a potent 365-horsepower turbocharged V6.”


5. Chevrolet Traverse

The Chevrolet Traverse is relatively new to the SUV scene, but makes a strong case for itself as it is the biggest vehicle in the class and is the roomiest vehicle on this list, according to KBB. It’s especially versatile as well, as it has a folding second row makes access to the way back much easier, and the third row folds flat into the floor when not needed, opening up acres of cargo space.

P109-34 0087

4. Honda Pilot

From the outside, the Honda Pilot doesn’t look like anything special. It’s not flashy, doesn’t make any distinct statements, and is generally unassuming overall. However, its looks belie an exceptionally versatile cabin that can accommodate up to eight people and offers an exceptionally refined and smooth ride for which Hondas are renowned.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

3. Jeep Grand Cherokee

If there’s one thing Jeep knows, it’s SUVs. Given that Jeep exclusively builds SUVs and crossovers, that’s a good thing, and the Grand Cherokee is perhaps the best illustration of this knowledge. In addition to having exceptional off-road credibility, the Grand Cherokee is “both the most rugged and the most refined vehicle in its class,” and it now comes with a more refined look, an upgraded interior and some revised powertrains that include an 8-speed automatic transmission and an available new diesel engine, KBB reports.

Nissan Pathfinder

2. Nissan Pathfinder

The Nissan (NSANY.PK) Pathfinder not only has a new suit with which to compete, but a couple of very interesting features that help set it apart from its class. It includes an “exclusive Around View Monitor that gives the driver a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of the car in parking situations,” KBB said, which is particularly useful for such large vehicles. It also has a second-row seat that allows for easy access to the third row even, when a child seat is installed.

2014 Toyota Highlander

1. Toyota Highlander

Finally, Kelley Blue Book determined that the Toyota  Highlander — which was redesigned almost entirely for 2014 — is still just as easy to navigate around town and even quieter on the highway than its predecessor, despite a larger and roomier cabin that can now seat eight. It’s a multi-tool that does everything well, and with its bolder look, one doesn’t have to sacrifice style for versatility.

When your money is on the line for a used SUV, you want to know the vehicle you’re buying will be a reliable traveling companion years down the road.

Our Instrumented Tests give you a clear picture of what every newSUV has to offer, and we also run select models through our Long-Term Test program to see how they hold up during one year and 40,000 miles of abuse. But when we want information on how reliable a vehicle promises to be after several years in service, we turn to research firm J.D. Power.

Customer Feedback on Reliability

Power conducts an annual Vehicle Dependability Study that asks thousands of owners how their vehicle has performed three years after their initial purchase. The Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) covers a total of 177 potential problem areas. The results are presented in terms of issues per 100 vehicles. An Overall score of 100 means that a vehicle has an average of 100 issues per 100 vehicles, or an average of 1 per vehicle. Obviously, a lower score equates to fewer problems and better reliability.

The Overall scores for three-year-old vehicles will never be perfectly predictive of how reliable a brand-new, current-year model will be; manufacturers tend to improve the quality of their vehicles over time, but there are also some years when they slide backwards. If you're looking for a new SUV, we suggest cross-checking the VDS with Power's Initial Quality Study (IQS), which surveys customers on problems in the first 90 days of ownership. Industry insiders say it's a reasonably good predictor of a car's future score on the Dependability Study.

How We Chose These Vehicles

For a deeper check on a vehicle's reliability, the Power site enables you to look back beyond the latest VDS survey to previous years' results to see how the same model has done over time. For this review, we've done just that: We've assembled the 13 used SUVs that rank highest in dependability based on their Overall scores in their individual categories in the two most recent VDS studies, published in 2017 and 2018. Each of those surveys looks back three years, so the SUVs assembled here represent the most dependable ones from model years 2014 and 2015. As a group, what's most impressive is that every one of these vehicles averaged less than 100 issues per 100 vehicles — in other words, less than one issue per vehicle on average—after three years in service. That's how reliable SUVs have become.

Small SUV: 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan

J.D. Power Dependability Score: 81

Precise steering and compact proportions make the original Tiguan—a second-generation model is out now—a great choice for city-dwelling SUV owners who need to fight through traffic or squeeze into tight parking spots.

Small SUV: 2015 Hyundai Tucson

J.D. Power Dependability Score: 80

Easy to drive in town, thanks to its small size and carlike handling, the diminutive Tucson sports a budget-friendly price to go along with its top-flight reliability.

Small Premium SUV: 2015 Audi Q3

J.D. Power Dependability Score: 87

New for the 2015 model year in the U.S. market—it was on sale elsewhere starting in 2012—the Q3 has been the entry point to Audi SUV ownership. Though we were never overly impressed with this version's driving dynamics or interior layout, a second generation hits the road in 2019 and promises to cure all that and more. FYI, if you're curious about the most dependable small premium SUV from 2014, there isn't one; this category was new starting with 2015 models.

Compact SUV: 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser

J.D. Power Dependability Score: 84

The rugged FJ Cruiser's blocky appearance was inspired by the Jeep-look alike Toyota J40 Land Cruiser of the 1960s. Like the original, the FJ has serious off-road capability as well. The modern FJ Cruiser was in its final sales year in 2014, and it went out with a top dependability score.

Compact SUV: 2015 Chevrolet Equinox

J.D. Power Dependability Score: 82

You see a lot of Chevrolet Equinoxes on the road, and with good reason. This version got the job done by providing lots of interior room, decent fuel economy, and an SUV's expected utility all at a reasonable price. Better still, the tens of thousands who bought one got great dependability in the bargain.

Compact Premium SUV: 2014 — 15 Mercedes-Benz GLK

2014 J.D. Power Dependability Score: 89

2015 J.D. Power Dependability Score: 87

Rare is it that any vehicle holds on to the top dependability spot for more than a single model year; the competition is tight and even small changes in reliability can dethrone a winner. But the GLK managed to top its category in the last two Dependability Studies. That speaks to its long-term quality. The fact that it still looks like money even though it's a few model-years old only adds to its luster.

Mid-size SUV: 2014 Toyota Venza

J.D. Power Dependability Score: 84

The Venza is an interesting vehicle. It looks equal parts SUV and station wagon, is roomy and is reasonably well appointed. The 2014 model reinforced Toyota's rep for building dependable, no-nonsense vehicles, but that was not enough for the company to keep selling it. It disappeared from the U.S. market at the end of the 2015 model year.

Mid-size SUV: 2015 Chevrolet Traverse

J.D. Power Dependability Score: 84

While this first-generation Traverse garnered some bad press for looking more like a minivan than a rugged SUV, the 2015 model delivered undeniable reliability according to customer surveys. With three rows of seating and a strong record for dependability, it proved to be a defensible choice in a crowded SUV market.

Mid-size Premium SUV: 2014 —15 Lexus RX

2014 J.D. Power Dependability Score: 91

2015 J.D. Power Dependability Score: 89

Lexus has an excellent reputation for reliability, so it’s not surprising to see RX350 come out on top in the midsize premium SUV category. In fact, given its Toyota roots, it's not a shocker that it has stayed at the top of the reliability mountain for two years in a row. After all, what good is a luxury vehicle if it's breaking down all the time?

Large SUV: 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe

J.D. Power Dependability Score: 83

Everyone knows the do-all, tow-all Chevrolet Tahoe. It's been around forever. It's big, roomy, powerful, and surprisingly agile for its huge size—and for the 2014 model year it's the most dependable large SUV. Its impressive score shows that American-branded SUVs can match the reliability of anything built by foreign manufacturers.

Large SUV: 2015 Ford Expedition

J.D. Power Dependability Score: 79

Ford built this same basic Expedition—with plenty of mechanical updates, of course—from 2007 through 2017, so the company has had a lot of time to get it right. That the 2015 model notched the lowest (meaning "best") Overall dependability score of any vehicle on this list proves that building the same vehicle over the long run pays dividends.

With over 75 million new-car sales over the past five years, consumers have a massive pool of vehicles to choose from when shopping for a used model. If you choose a vehicle with high depreciation, you can get into a ride for 70% less than the original owner did a few years back.

But it all depends on your priorities. For used-vehicles shoppers who prize reliability over other factors, you might want to ignore depreciation at the start of your search.

In fact, your first stop should probably be the detailed Consumer Reports reliability ratings since the start of the decade. Looking at the midsize SUV category in recent years, these eight models have stood above the pack in this category.

8. Subaru Outback

Maybe you call it a wagon, but the cargo-friendly, four-wheel-drive Outback is exactly what consumers want in a utility vehicle. Every year, it posts above-average owner satisfaction ratings while posting strong resale value.

Meanwhile, Subaru’s midsize model has ranked high for reliability. Since 2014, you’ll find only minor issues with infotainment and power equipment. Otherwise, you’ll get a car that runs as reliably as any SUV for the 2014-17 model years.

7. Kia Sorento

You could argue that Kia’s gains in quality over the past 10 years has been one of the under-reported stories in the automotive media. Just about every vehicle in the lineup has improved dramatically, and all the while the 10-year warranty has stuck around.

The Sorento midsize SUV offers a perfect test-case. By 2015, all the complaints about earlier model-years disappeared as an above-average reliability rating went on the books. In 2016, despite being a redesign year, Sorento once again got a high rating. A total of zero (0) mechanical, interior, or other flaws were reported for both years.

6. BMW X5

Whether you go by sales, owner satisfaction, or reliability, the BMW X5 is one of the top-rated SUVs you can buy (new or used). For our purposes, zeroing on dependability in daily operations, it stands out among all midsize utility vehicles and among luxury models in particular.

Since the 2015 model appeared, the only weak spots identified were the in-car electronics system (’15 models) and overall fit-and-finish (’16 models). Otherwise, owners and testers reported solid, reliable performance.

5. Toyota Venza

  • Best years: 2012, 2014-15

While the Toyota Venza was discontinued in 2015, this model remains one of the most reliable utility vehicles of the decade. Year after year, owners reported few (if any) issues with its powertrain, fuel system, climate control, or brakes.

Certainly, you’ll sacrifice a bit of modern tech and convenience with an older vehicle, but if reliability is your primary concern the Venza is among the best. An “average” brake score for 2015 is about as bad as this model ever got.

4. Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

In terms of daily operation (engine, transmission, brakes, suspension), you’ll struggle to find an SUV that’s more reliable than the 2014-17 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Used-vehicle buyers also get a model with a high-quality interior and decent fuel economy.

If you don’t want a Toyota but consider reliability a chief driver of your next car purchase, a Santa Fe Sport should be on your radar. the only flaw that turned up since 2014 was an “average” rating for infotainment.

3. Lexus RX

Road shot of gray Lexus RX350 SUV

Consumer Reports always stresses caution when it comes to redesigned vehicles. Usually, automakers need a year or two to get it right, and reliability typically drops a peg or two during that change-over period. But that’s not the case with elite models like the Lexus RX.

Models from 2014-15 (before the exterior makeover) landed the top reliability ratings, as did every other model earlier in the decade. After the 2016 refresh, that barely changed. The latest models take advantage of a new transmission and offer better fuel economy, though used prices will be higher.

2. Toyota Highlander

If your goal is to find the most practical SUV on the new or used market, the Toyota Highlander is probably your best option. Reliability, fuel economy, and owner satisfaction are among the best of any vehicle Consumer Reports rated this decade. (In 2019, Highlander ranked No. 1 of 18 midsize SUVs.)

Poring over the ratings for each element of this model, you won’t find any flaws outside of infotainment since 2014. Model years 2015-17 (following the ’14 redesign) were especially strong.

1. Toyota 4Runner

  • Best years: Every year since 2010.

Is the Toyota 4Runner the best midsize SUV? Almost no one believes that. However, this dated model is unanimously the most reliable vehicle (car, truck, or SUV) of the entire decade, so its place on this list is secure.

Since 2014, the only significant flaw found in this vehicle came in the infotainment setup (in only the ’14 model). Otherwise, used vehicle shoppers can’t do better if your goal is having your ride start every morning and stay out of the repair shop.

The one drawback? A used 4Runner holds its value as well as any five-year-old SUV, so used models don’t come cheap.
