It’s no secret that we here at MigratoryMaps love SUVs!

In fact:

We prefer SUVs over every other segment of the automobile market hands down.

There simply is no equal to traveling across the country in a luxurious SUV.

The practicality, the styling, and the feel and comfort of riding inside an SUV makes this segment of the automobile market the absolute best.

Without exception:

Everyone should own at least one SUV in their lifetime.

Traveling in an SUV is the absolute peak of driving pleasure achieved.

Nothing else:

Not a sedan, a pickup truck, or even a minivan comes close to making you feel the way an SUV treats its passengers and driver.

The question then becomes:

Which SUV should you buy?

We’ve taken much of the guesswork out of the equation and compiled the definitive list of the best-looking SUVs you can buy off the lot today!

If you don’t see an SUV on this list:

It’s because it’s not attractive to look at or it’s safety is sub-par and weak.

We can’t lie to you and recommend you buy an ugly SUV.

We just can’t do it.

We also can’t deny your safety when you’re driving an SUV irrespective of how good it may look.

For these reasons:

Every SUV on this list is both attractive to look at and safe to travel inside with your family and friends.

We strongly recommend against purchasing a new SUV that you don’t see on this list.

If it’s on this list and you feel a strong inclination towards buying the vehicle:

Understand that you’re buying an SUV that’s both attractive and exceptionally safe to drive.

The truth is:

The world would be a much better and more vibrant and beautiful place if everyone drove an SUV.

Without further ado:

Here are the best-looking SUVs you can buy brand new off the lot today!

Kia Sorento

It’s no surprise that the Kia Sorento would make the cut among the best-looking SUVs on the road today.

I mean just look at that gorgeous face!

I honestly admire drivers on the road that pick the Sorento as their daily driver.

It’s definitely a great choice.

The Ford Edge is without a shadow of doubt one of the most handsome and rugged looking SUVs on the market today.

This thing is a beast.

I would love love love to drive inside an Edge on a daily basis.

Beautiful exterior!

Hyundai Santa Fe

This is an obvious choice.

The Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport are two of the most popular SUVs on the market today and for good reason.

They look and perform great!

They’re also drop dead gorgeous SUVs.

Very easy on the eyes.

Hyundai Tucson

Okay, be careful because the model we are including on this list is the updated model and not the previous renditions of the Tucson (there is a very significant design difference between the two).

The new 2017 Tucson is really a very safe, reliable, and overall good looking SUV to own.

Ford Escape

Have you seen the newly redesigned 2017 model year of the Honda Escape?

It’s bold exterior and comfortable seats make for a slam dunk win in the compact SUV segment.

There’s something about the Escape that makes you want to take it out for a long drive on the road.

Buick Enclave


The Buick Enclave hasn’t had a model year refresh in quite a while because it doesn’t need one!

It’s so well designed and checks all the right boxes that you can feel proud and happy to call the Enclave your own.

Chevy Traverse

The Chevy Traverse is a good SUV to own if it suits your individual tastes.

The 2017 model is a gorgeous SUV to own with a sleek and attractive metal body.

It’s definitely an SUV you can be proud to own and take your family and friends on a long exciting road trip with.

Buick Encore

The Encore is definitely one of the best looking smaller sized SUVs on the market today.

Although the model pictured above is part of the 2016 model year family, we think the newly designed 2017 model looks even better.

GMC Terrain

Nothing but good looks here from the Terrain.

It’s subtle humps and grooves blend well together and make for a very compelling and attractive SUV.

It almost gives off the vibe of a pickup for those of you that need a replacement for your old truck.

Subaru Forester

The Subaru Forester checks all the right boxes on our list.

It’s one of the most affordable SUVs on the market and yet attractive in its design.

The revamped 2017 Forester is a welcome improvement over the older outgoing model.

Chevy Equinox

It’s a bit on the bulky side, but attractive never the less.

The Chevy Equinox is definitely worthy of being on this list.

It may look plain but hey that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Especially when you have SUVs on the road today that look far worse.

Nissan Rogue

I’ll be honest.

The Nissan Rogue is one of those iffy SUVs that almost didn’t make the cut.

However, it’s looks are substantially attractive enough to earn it a spot on this list of the best looking SUVs on the road today.

Hopefully, its design continues to improve over the years.

Chevy Trax

The Chevy Trax is an absolute gem.

For people that like SUVs, but prefer a more compact package, the Chevy Trax should definitely be on your shopping list.

It’s safe and sexy enough to have earned a spot on this list.

It’s really quite a good looking and charming ride.

Ford Explorer

The Ford Explorer is a nifty SUV to call your own.

The new looks of the Explorer really do its body justice.

It’s no wonder you see so many cops adopting the Explorer as their patrol unit.

Watch out!

The next time you see a Ford Explorer on the road it may be an undercover cop.

Nissan Pathfinder

This is a really great and descriptive shot of the Nissan Pathfinder.

It just goes to show you how amazing an SUV can be both on and off the road.

With looks like this, you really can feel comfortable in knowing you’re driving inside an awesome and rugged SUV.

Subaru Crosstrek

For those of you that desire the ride height of an SUV with the styling of a sports car, the Subaru Crosstrek does a good job blending elements of the two together.

I know personally one guy that sold his STI and replaced it completely with the Crosstrek.

Ya, he liked it that much!

GMC Acadia

The GMC Acadia is a titan among SUVs.

This is, without a doubt, one of the best looking SUV face grills of any on the market today.

Drive inside an Acadia and feel what it’s like to be in control of your lane.

Just remember, however, that with a great looking SUV comes great responsibility.

Ford Flex

The sharp angles and flat roofline sets the Flex apart from other SUVs on the road.

If you’re looking for a uniquely designed SUV that stands out from the crowd while maintaining an attractive design, the Ford Flex is a great choice.

Some say this is the best SUV ever made.

That may have been an exaggeration, but what isn’t is how incredibly good looking this particular SUV looks.

When I first saw the X3 I immediately felt its presence and appreciated its sporty look and feel behind the wheel.

Acura RDX

This is a nicely packaged SUV and a joy to look at and drive.

The RDX is a solid product of careful engineering and fine craftsmanship.

You can’t go wrong with the Acura RDX especially if you’re someone that leads a very active lifestyle.

Few compact SUVs come even close to the level of performance that the Q5 delivers.

There’s something about the X1 by BMW that stirs passion and desire inside of the soul of the driver.

You simply can’t ignore the striking good looks of the BMW X1’s exterior.

It’s so well designed on the outside that it almost looks prophetic in the right light.

Audi Q3

For the market that demands luxury in a subcompact SUV, Audi delivers!

I don’t know what it is exactly about subcompact SUVs that makes them seem so elegant and charming, but there’s no denying their allure.

The Q3 is an absolute masterpiece of automotive engineering.

Jeep Grand Cherokee

Nothing takes you off road and into the unknown like a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

If you like feeling comfortable and safe knowing you’re in good hands when embarking on a journey into the unknown then a Jeep Grand Cherokee is an obvious choice.

Chevy Traverse

Chevy definitely did well to upgrade the aesthetics on the Traverse.

It looks better and more upscale.

For those of us that need the extra seating, the Traverse can comfortably hold 7-8 passengers no problem.

The winner of numerous awards and accolades, this is definitely one of the best SUVs on the road hands down!

Test drive an Audi Q7 and you may feel tempted to buy one.

A joy to look at and a joy to drive; the MDX from Acura is an incredibly capable and comfortable SUV to drive.
