Full-size SUVs are the most likely to reach at least 200,000 miles, according to a new study by automotive research firm iSeeCars.com.

The study says only 0.8% of cars driven reach 200,000 miles, but the 14 models on the list all have at least 2.2% of its cars reach the six-digit mileage.

“With the right maintenance and care, today’s vehicles have the potential to reach 200,000 miles,” iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly said in a statement. “While large SUVs and pickup trucks appear most often on the list, those looking for sedans and minivans can also find a vehicle that is proven to be a high-mileage hauler.”

Toyota and General Motors cars both respectively appear on the list six times.

“Toyotas are known for their reliability, and our findings show that these capable family haulers are able to go the distance for their owners,” Ly said.

Ly also predicts that GM cars frequent the list because they all “share the same platform and many of the same parts, which could explain why these popular family vehicles have similar track records for lasting at least 200,000 miles.”

iSeeCars analyzed over 13.8 million cars sold in 2018 and calculated the number of models that achieved over 200,000 miles. Keep scrolling to see which cars made the coveted list:

This is the only minivan on the list, which Ly claims offers more cargo space and better gas mileage than SUVs.

“Minivans are an ideal option for families who want extra cargo room and seating, but don’t require a vehicle that performs like a truck,” Ly said.


12. Toyota Avalon: 2.5%

The Avalon is the only sedan on the list.

“The Avalon provides a spacious interior and serves as a capable and comfortable alternative for those who want a reliable family hauler but don’t require the expansive cargo space of a large SUV or minivan,” Ly said.


11. Toyota Tundra: 2.6%
