If you're looking for a versatile SUV without breaking the bank, there are a lot of options out there that will satisfy both your daily commute and your budget. The most affordable SUVs offer more content and value than you might think and a couple can even be had for under the $20,000 mark.

Here are the top 10 most affordable new SUVs for 2019 and their starting prices including destination charges.

Subaru Crosstrek: $22,870

The 10th most affordable SUV on the market today is also the most affordable one that comes standard with all-wheel drive on every model. The Crosstrek is beloved for its quirky off-road character, its reasonable pricing and its well-built cabin. Despite having real off-road chops, the ride quality is surprisingly smooth in the Crosstrek. Find a Subaru Crosstrek for sale

Chevrolet Trax

Chevrolet Trax: $22,295

The Chevrolet Trax serves as an affordable entry-level into the big Chevrolet SUV lineup going from this little Trax all the way up to the mighty Suburban. It might not have Suburban capabilities, but the Trax is a good urban runabout with roomy seats, a user-friendly infotainment system, and an attractive price tag. Find a Chevrolet Trax for sale

Toyota C-HR

Toyota C-HR: $21,990

The Toyota C-HR which stands for "Coupe High Rider" is probably the most unconventional SUV on our list. Its edgy styling was originally a Scion design, but the demise of the Scion brand turned this subcompact crossover into a Toyota product. Generous standard safety tech, agile handling and a head-turning aesthetic make the C-HR a good choice for young drivers on a budget who want to stand out. Find a Toyota C-HR for sale

Honda HR-V

Honda HR-V: $21,565

If a more conventional small SUV is what you're looking for, the practical Honda HR-V might be for you. It has interior space that will surprise you for its size and interior quality that will surprise you for its price. Its excellent fuel economy further adds to this Honda's practicality. It isn't the most affordable SUV on the market, but it is one of the best values. Find a Honda HR-V for sale

Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: $21,390

One subcompact SUV that's often forgotten, but worth consideration is the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. A couple of its strong suits are a good warranty and generous cargo space. This affordable crossover has some safety tech that's newly available for 2019 including blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and lane-change assist. Find a Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Mazda CX-3

Mazda CX-3: $21,385

The Mazda CX-3 is the athlete of the group. It won't blow you away with raw power, but it has decidedly sporty handling that makes it the enthusiast's choice in affordable subcompact crossovers. A few of its other perks include a premium cabin and strong fuel economy. It also got a slight update for 2019 which adds a slightly revised exterior and standard blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Find a Mazda CX-3 for sale

Ford EcoSport

Ford EcoSport: $21,090

The Ford EcoSport is similar to the Chevy Trax, serving as an affordable introduction into a much larger SUV lineup. It impresses with generous cargo space, a cool rear swing gate rather than a normal lift gate and a good infotainment system. The EcoSport is a strong value on the low end, but a lot can be added by moving up through the model range, which we recommend if you can afford it. Find a Ford EcoSport for sale

Hyundai Kona

Hyundai Kona: $21,035

The Hyundai Kona is one of the more impressive new SUVs to come out in recent years and its very affordable pricing is the icing on the cake. The Kona offers interesting styling, a spry turbocharged engine available and a very nice interior with an intuitive infotainment system. The 2019 model adds more standard safety tech which we always like to see, especially at such an affordable price point. Find a Hyundai Kona for sale

Nissan Kicks

Nissan Kicks: $19,585

The small Nissan Kicks is big on value. It replaces the Nissan Juke as the entry-level Nissan SUV and we like it for its big cargo space, excellent fuel economy and of course, its affordable price. One thing you should know about the Kicks is that it's one of the only crossovers on this list that isn't available with AWD, but its standard FWD is good enough for most drivers. Find a Nissan Kicks for sale

Kia Soul

Kia Soul: $18,485

The Kia Soul is all-new for the 2020 model year and it continues to impress us with its quirky styling, roomy cabin for both passengers and cargo, and strong value proposition. Like the Kicks, the Soul is not available with AWD, but again, that's a feature that most motorists won't miss. Moving up to the higher trims gets you nice features like a turbocharged engine, a head-up display and a better infotainment system, but the Kia Soul is a great value no matter which model you chose.
