There are lots of reasons why people trade a car for an SUV, crossover or truck, but the biggest ones are:

  • More interior room for cargo and passengers
  • Better visibility, seeing the road ahead
  • Traction and clearance for snow and mud
  • Crash safety 


How to Trade Your Car for an SUV or Crossover

So you’re ready to make the move, but which vehicle is right for you? SUVs and crossovers, while somewhat different, are more popular than ever, so there’s a ton of options to choose from. It can be a little overwhelming in fact. Not to worry, Major World’s got you. To make it easier for you to narrow it down, we broke the crossovers and SUVs at our large used car dealership down into 3 categories for you. 

There’s gonna be some overlap, but we promise this will help you out. 

  1. Crossovers and SUVs With Good Gas Mileage
  2. Crossovers and SUVs with Good Performance/Handling 
  3. Crossovers and SUVs with Third Row Seating

Crossovers and SUVs With Good Gas Mileage

We’re starting here because gas prices are not great right now, so it’s on most people’s minds. But higher gas prices do not need to crush your dreams of riding high and proud in the low-mileage luxury SUV or sporty crossover of your dreams. You just need the right large used car dealership to put you behind the wheel and we all know, that’s Major World! MPG ratings below are City/Highway combined, by the way. 

If you want to trade your car for an SUV, but need good gas mileage, check these out:

COMPACT: Nissan Rogue (29-33 mpg) or Honda CR-V Hybrid (38 mpg) 

MID-SIZED: Kia Sorrento Hybrid or Toyota Highlander Hybrid (34-35 mpg combined)

LARGE:  Chevy Tahoe Diesel (24 mpg combined) Mercedes GLS 450 (21 mpg combined)

Crossovers and SUVs With Good Performance/Handling

One of the reasons some people decide to buy an SUV or crossover when they really need one is concerns about performance and handling. But trading your car for an SUV or crossover doesn’t have to mean losing thrilling acceleration or the ability to turn on a dime. Once again, you just need to know where to look. 

Want to move up to an SUV, but speed and handling are a must? We’ve got you covered:

COMPACT: Mazda CX-5 Turbo  or BMW X3

MID-SIZED: Ford Explorer ST or Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT

LARGE:  Audi SQ7 or BMW X7

Crossovers and SUVs with Third Row Seating

Another major reason why you might want to trade your car for an SUV is because your family has grown. Let’s face it, minivans may be practical, but most people just feel cooler in an SUV and they’re better at attacking snow banks and getting up gravel roads. Lucky for you, it’s easier to get 3 rows in an SUV than ever before. Shopping at a reputable large used car dealership like Major World makes it easy to compare and shop all in one place. 

Need that third row for the kiddos? Major World has three-row SUV’s recommendations: 

COMPACT: Volkswagen Tiguan or Mitsubishi Outlander

MID-SIZED: Hyundai Palisade or Chevy Traverse 

LARGE:  Cadillac Escalade or Lincoln Navigator
