Here Are the Cheapest SUVs Today

BOSTON (TheStreet) -- Sport utility vehicles are some of the auto world's biggest sellers these days, but here's a look at the five 2014 SUVs that carry the smallest price tags.

"There are a lot more people out there who are on a budget than who are rich, so manufacturers have realized that establishing a strong foothold [in the low end of the market] is a really good idea," says Warren Clarke of car-buying site Edmunds.com, which recently analyzed prices to find this year's least-expensive SUVs.

Not surprisingly, the five lowest-priced models are all compact SUVs, also known as "crossovers" because they straddle the line between sedans and larger sport utility vehicles.

But Clarke says drivers who buy any of the models below won't give up much beyond cabin size, as cutthroat competition in the SUV segment means even low-priced models provide decent features and performance.

"Many of the [vehicles] on the list are segment leaders, so you really don't have to worry about sacrificing anything," Clarke says.

Read on to check out the lowest-priced SUVs on the U.S. market today.

All dollar figures reflect 2014 manufacturer's suggested retail pricing for each vehicle's base trim line, including destination charges.
