A lot of people want the look of a sport utility vehicle, without the investment in power that, over time, can add up to a lot of money. The initial purchase of a powerful sport utility vehicle is expensive, and they aren't fuel efficient, which also adds up quickly at the gas pump. Crossovers helped satisfy some of those shoppers, by providing SUV-inspired style without all of the associated budgetary issues, but that compromise isn't suitable for everyone. Some shoppers just really want modestly powered SUVs... so here they are. The top 10 low horsepower sport utility vehicles come with the signature style and just enough juice to engage in some light duty activity. No need to go all out, or be stuck on the sidelines. One of these new vehicles, the least powerful SUVs on the market, might be the perfect solution to finding a sport utility vehicle with the looks you want, without being bogged down by more power than you'll ever be able to use.

SUVs with low horsepower might seem a little lackluster when compared side by side with higher end sport utility vehicles, but once you know you're going to end up with a low horsepower SUV, there's really no need to comparison shop against the more expensive vehicles. Just focus on the SUVs with low power to find the best model that'll suit you, making sure to get the options and features on your shopping list. Even the SUVs with least amount of horsepower have a pretty broad menu of available amenities, with a lot of the same options as higher end models. By shopping for a smaller, low horsepower engine, you'll lose some speed and towing capacity, but the interior and exterior of the vehicle will be similar to the more expensive models. The SUVs with least amount of power will blend right in with the pack.
