Auto » 7 Classy Crossovers With Comfort In Mind

Chevrolet Traverse 1LT
Chevrolet Traverse 1LT
  • Price: $34,885
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 17 mpg
    • Highway - 24 mpg
    • Combined - 19 mpg

Just sneaking under Bankrate's price ceiling, the Traverse is a large crossover with plenty of interior space. The 60-40 split second- and third-row seats fold flat, providing a huge cargo floor for hauling larger items. Think of the Traverse as a minivan for people who don't want to drive a minivan.

It scored well with Consumer Reports, coming in second in total points behind the Subaru Forester.

To really get a decked-out Traverse means moving up to another model, but the 1LT still comes with goodies like a backup camera, seven air bags, 6.5-inch touchscreen, OnStar Telematics and a six-speaker audio system with satellite radio capability.

It uses a 281-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 to turn the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. Despite being a crossover, it can tow up to 5,200 pounds.
