AutoTraders Guide To Canada's Top SUV's under $35,000!

Author: Sam McEachern -

The crossover has essentially taken over the automotive market. Canadian consumers have begun to abandon their sedans and hatchbacks in favour of crossovers, with the vehicles offering up more capability, added safety, available all-wheel drive, and a higher driving position.
However, there is one downside to trading a sedan or hatchback for a crossover: price. While not exponentially more expensive than a comparably sized car, crossovers typically carry a premium and can quickly jump up in price when all-wheel drive or other options are added in.
Here at, we want to make it as easy as possible for Canadian shoppers to find a crossover that doesn't break the bank. This list includes every crossover or SUV on sale in Canada for under $35,000, making it simple to find a vehicle that fits your needs and won't leave you with a car payment you can barely afford. Start scrolling to start your crossover/SUV shopping journey.
Two Row

Hyundai Venue – $17,099
The Hyundai Venue is a stylish subcompact crossover with a 121-horsepower 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine. It is the cheapest crossover available in Canada for the 2020 model year, but there's one downside: it is not available with all-wheel drive (AWD).
Nissan Kicks – $19,298
The Nissan Kicks is a direct competitor to the Hyundai Venue and is similar in many ways, from styling, to interior packaging and performance. It is powered by a 125 hp 1.6L four-cylinder engine and is available with front-wheel drive (FWD) only.
Mazda CX-3 – $21,045
The Mazda CX-3 is among the cheapest crossovers available with all-wheel drive. Pricing for FWD models starts at $21,045, while AWD models start at $23,345. Power comes from a 2.0L four-cylinder engine rated at 148 hp.
Kia Soul – $21,195
The Kia Soul is slightly larger than the Venue and Kicks, but features similar boxy styling and similar packaging. Power comes from a 2.0L four-cylinder engine rated at 147 hp, which sends power to the front wheels. Also like the Venue and Kicks, the Soul is FWD only.

Hyundai Kona – $21,249
The Hyundai Kona starts at $21,249 for FWD models and $23,249 for AWD models. Power comes from a 147 hp 2.0L engine, but a 175 hp 1.6L turbo is also available. The Kona is also available with a 201 hp pure electric powertrain, though these models are FWD only.
Nissan Qashqai – $21,498
The Nissan Qashqai is a spacious compact crossover that is priced like a subcompact. Base models with FWD are priced at just under $21,500, while AWD models are quite a bit more at $26,298. Power comes from a 2.0L four-cylinder producing 147 hp.
Chevrolet Trax – $21,898
The Chevrolet Trax is pricey for a subcompact, with prices starting at just under $22,000 for FWD models and $23,898 for AWD models. The only available engine is a 138 hp 1.4L four-cylinder. It's worth noting the Trax is fairly old and is due for an update in the next couple years or so. For that reason, it may be worth waiting for a more up-to-date model to arrive.
Kia Seltos – $22,995
The Kia Seltos is a fairly new addition to the subcompact crossover class. Prices start at just under $23,000 for FWD models and $24,995 for AWD models. Like the closely related Hyundai Kona, power comes from a 147 hp 2.0L engine, but a 175 hp 1.6L turbo is available.
