Buying a modestly powered crossover is about finding just enough vehicle to get the job done, without paying extra for a lot of excess.  The list of the top 10 low horsepower crossovers is a good place to start your shopping if it’s time to replace or upgrade from your old, worn out family vehicle. The least powerful crossovers on the market are a great alternative to a minivan or a station wagon, when there will be a lot of passengers. And for people who like the looks of a small sport utility vehicle but wouldn’t push an SUV to its limits, one of the new crossovers with low horsepower might have the kinds of style features that give a sport utility vehicle its signature look, without paying for expensive features that will never get used and just go to waste.

As crossovers keep growing in popularity, the range gets expanded whenever the auto manufacturers introduce a new model or update and rerelease an old one. Each new model year brings new entries to the segment. And that means potential crossover buyers have more options than ever. Rather than having to shop for competing types of vehicles, a well designed crossover can provide some of the best amenities of each of the family oriented segments.  If you’re shopping for a new crossover, and you’ve decided that a really powerful engine isn’t necessary for the type of driving you usually do, you’re free to start looking at the less expensive end of the crossover range. Crossovers with low power are likely to save some money, both during the purchase and over the years of ownership. The new crossovers with least amount of horsepower are still a worthwhile purchase, even if they won’t win any races. Shopping for crossovers with least amount of power will keep a family safe and comfortable, and also save some money.
