If you’re interested in a new SUV, you might be wondering which auto manufacturer offers the best warranty. And we can’t blame you for that. SUVs are not cheap, and a good warranty helps to show that a company stands by its product. So, which SUV comes with the best warranty in 2023?

The best SUV warranty might surprise you

Many new SUVs offer some form of manufacturer warranty. But, the best warranties do not come from popular brands like Ford and Toyota. No, if you want an SUV with a good warranty, you will want to look to a Korean manufacturer.

Hyundai Motor Group offers one of the best warranties on the market. This covers the Hyundai brand as well as Genesis. Whether it be a 2023 Genesis GV80 or a 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5, you can get some pretty compelling warranty coverage on your SUV. Warranty coverage on an SUV from one of these brands includes:

  • 5 years/60,000 miles bumper-to-bumper coverage
  • 10 years/1000 miles powertrain coverage
  • 5 years/unlimited miles roadside assistance

Coverage like that should give you some peace of mind for your 2023 SUV purchase. 

The third-best warranty coverage comes from Kia. Hyundai Motor Group does own a significant portion of Kia, so that does make sense. 

Should you get an extended warranty?

If the standard warranty on your SUV does not satisfy you, it is possible to opt for an extended warranty. These can often be purchased through a car dealership, but manufacturers also offer extended warranties. 

Once again, Kia, Hyundai, and Genesis take the cake in terms of extended warranties. In terms of what an extended SUV warranty does, it will essentially give you more coverage over your vehicle. And to some, that might be worth the additional cost. 

Which SUV has the worst warranty?

According to Motor1, Toyota has one of the worst warranties on the market. It is not terrible, but it simply can’t keep up with brands like Hyundai and Kia. At the same time, Toyota is seen as a pretty reliable auto manufacturer, so it might make sense that it does not feel the need to offer such a compelling warranty. 

Other brands that fall at the bottom of the list include Subaru and Chevy, so Toyota is not the only one that does not sell SUVs that come without a competitive warranty.
