SUVs have faced a massive surge in the past 10 years. Most families in the U.S. opt for a three-row SUV that can cater to their kids. Long-distance trips are also made easier with such SUVs.
Families do a lot of groceries and to put all those bags in the car after shopping, you need ample space. SUVs also come to your aid in this regard. The list below contains the best SUVs from this year and last year combined.
Kia Telluride – 2021
Telluride has been Kia’s biggest SUV to date. To enter such a stage in their operations, they had to ensure maximum comfort to the users.

Although some people might sway away from the starting price as it lies under $45k.
Volkswagen Atlas – 2022
The Atlas has probably been the best SUV of the year so far. It offers a full adult-passenger-sized third row, unlike most SUVs. For parents that are looking for significant space for their kids at the back, Volkswagen’s Atlas is the best match.
It breaks all boundaries in terms of space and capability. The price value is decent for such an artistic automobile. The Atlas offers around 33 inches of legroom in the third row which has left the competitors vulnerable as well. The interior is spacious as well.
Hyundai Palisade – 2021

The Pilot mainly remains unchanged by Honda for the year 2021. Although Honda made their brilliant smooth-shifting nine-speed transmission standard across the variants. Not only this but the all-wheel drive feature has also now been made standard by Honda.
It’s an overall great family car but families that live in snowy regions can get the most out of Honda Pilot. It has specific driving modes that fight any sort of inconvenient weather.
