Good performance, clean exhaust gases or durability and low failure rate? Different engine designers have their own priorities, as do users. Luxury and sports car buyers won't be tempted by a low-powered car, while low-end car enthusiasts will happily trade high performance for fuel economy.
Fans of practical and versatile crossovers, judging by the results of the surveys, first of all require uninterrupted operation for as long as possible. Let's check which of the popular models will be the safest choice for them, writes newsyou.info.
Crossovers with durable engines
Gone are the days when cars started with simple equipment, and a serious engine failure could only be caused by a faulty timing drive. Modern high-tech engines are good, but short-lived, and it is no longer possible to be sure that a new car will travel 200-300 thousand km without problems.
It's even worse with used cars when the buyer can't be sure of the actual mileage.
Nobody wants to constantly pay for repairs and spend their best days in the workshops, and therefore the question of choosing the brand and model of a crossover with the least problematic power unit is put in the first place.
Japanese cars are probably the most reliable on the planet. Brands like Toyota, Mazda, and Honda have been leading the reliability charts for decades, and that trend doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon. It is important to note here that there are many differences at the individual level, and expectations are only met if you take care of your car and engine in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations.
Here are 15 modern crossovers that boast the least problematic power units. These candidates are selected based on aggregated statistics from diagnostic centers, body shops and mechanics who help maintain engines properly. Many of them run up to half a million kilometers without major repairs.
- Mazda CX-5;
- Subaru Crosstrek;
- Honda CR-V;
- Honda HR-V;
- GMC Acadia;
- Subaru Forester;
- Volvo XC60/90;

Cost of repairs is also an important factor. The foreign cars for which engine troubleshooting was the cheapest were:
- Mazda – average cost to fix a problem is $286;
- Renault – 300;
- Kia – 320;
- Hyundai -328;
- Chevrolet – 341;
- Volkswagen – 358;
- Honda – 427;
- Toyota – 462.
Do not forget that the reliability of any equipment is a game of chance, and no one can say for sure how long one or other unit. But a lot depends on how well you take care of it. Just like the car in general. If you don't take care of it properly, it doesn't matter how good its engine is.
