What is a Midsize or Intermediate SUV?

An intermediate, or midsize, SUV is slightly smaller than a standard SUV but still has enough room for a group or family of five to ride comfortably. Example models include the Mazda CX-5, Jeep Compass, and Subaru Outback, among others. Most models have four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, excellent for rougher terrain or bad weather, and are fuel-efficient for an SUV, making them the perfect vehicle for any trip or adventure.
