Best Midsize SUVs for 2024

The best used and new midsize SUVs based on a data-driven analysis of each vehicle's reliability, resale value and safety.

The best midsize SUV is the Honda Passport based on our analysis of 12 million vehicles to assess their reliability, resale value and safety. Its overall rating of 8.9 out of 10 reflects the Passport’s reliability, value retention and safety scores. A new Honda Passport costs between $41,900 and $47,970 while a used version costs between $24,396 and $41,572. This midsize SUV can seat up to 5 people and is EPA rated to deliver up to 21 miles per gallon in mixed city/highway driving.

The Midsize SUV category consists of 31 models priced between $23,675 and $107,200 for new vehicles and between $13,990 and $84,840 for used vehicles. iSeeCars has sufficient vehicle data to rate and rank 20 of these 31 models based on their reliability, value retention and safety scores.

SUV buyers looking to maximize passenger space, cargo space, and towing capacity, while still avoiding the maneuverability challenges that come with driving a full-size SUV, will want to consider these best midsize SUVs. While not quite as space-efficient as a boxy minivan, most of these models offer 3-row seating, either standard or optional, as well as flexible cargo capacity when folding the third- and/or second-row seats down.

Buyers seeking smaller, more car-like SUVs, including the Honda CR-V, Subaru Outback, and Toyota RAV4, should check out our Best Small SUVs list, while those needing even more space and capability should look at our Best Large SUVs. You can also find premium models in our Best Luxury Midsize SUV list and all-electric models in our Best Electric SUVs list.

How We Rank These Cars

iSeeCars Best Car Rankings are calculated based on the latest research by our data science team and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

We analyze data from over 12 million new and used vehicles in our Longest-Lasting Cars and 5-Year Depreciation Studies, combined with the NHTSA's Safety Ratings to give you an unbiased guide to the best vehicles in each segment.

After being evaluated, vehicles with the highest average scores earn a spot in the iSeeCars Best Car Rankings. (No final score is given to vehicles missing a score in any of the categories, but scores for other categories are still shown.)

Vehicles are scored in three categories:

Reliability | 33.3%

The reliability score represents an analysis of iSeeCars' proprietary research on the longest-lasting vehicles.

Value Retention | 33.3%

The value retention score is based on our data science team's statistical analysis and prediction of 5-year depreciation from MSRP to determine which cars hold their value best, using US Bureau of Labor Statistics data to adjust for inflation.

Safety | 33.3%

The safety score is calculated based on the last five years of crash test ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and incorporates the latest Top Safety Pick information from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
