    Venza has the best goodies for my money. Great AWD Crossover for the older driver. Easy to get in and out.
    Next best value AWD is the Santa Fe.
    After these top two come a whole range of Nissan's Kia's and Hyundia's. They ALL beat the ones you have shown your pretty pictures of.

    The majority of people do not know about what makes an SUV a good car. The reviewer of this Edmunds column most probably does not know either. A buyer who follows the car media or advertisement does not care either. For example the Honda CR-V has the most elementary 4WD system on the market and more than the 80% of the driving time in this car is in front wheel drive. The same can be said of the other car makers.

    Who in the average car buyer knows about the S-AWC of the Mitsubishi Outlander GT? Who knows about the electronic front differential that comes with the GT and what it is for? They do not know and they do not care either. Our car market is oriented to satisfy the majority of illiterate car buyers and the reviewer is not exempt from this trend.

    For example the Ford SUV Explorer has killed a number of drivers but still people continue buying Ford Explorers. Toyota has recalled more than 2.5 million cars but people still keep buying Toyotas. How does the reviewer explain this trend?
