Lists The Most Affordable 3-Row Crossovers

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Leads Segment in Affordability, the premier online resource for buying, selling and now servicing cars, has listed the most affordable 3-row crossovers currently for sale. To determine affordability, the list combines the cost to purchase each car (including destination fee), five years of fuel costs as well as each car’s residual value after five years. To qualify for the list, each car had to come equipped with basic features that most car shoppers expect, including automatic transmission, power driver’s seat, rearview camera, USB port and Bluetooth connectivity.

“With an average starting price hovering around $30,000, the 3-row crossover segment is not a cheap one to enter,” said David Thomas, managing editor. “Still, sales of these crossovers are up 13.3 percent through May versus an average year-over-year increase of 4.5 percent across all segments. With car shoppers flocking to these family-friendly minivan alternatives, we sought to help shoppers understand where they’ll be able to get the most bang for their buck over the life of their purchase.”
