Best Compact Suv To Buy Used

With a comfortable ride and a spacious second row, the Chevrolet Equinox is a great choice for everything from carpooling to road trips. All-new for the 2018 model year, the Equinox has a choice of three engines, including a diesel. Its infotainment system is easy to use, the cabin is quiet, and the Equinox can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Another American take on the theme, the 2019 Ford Escape is also one of the newest models on this list, bringing with it plenty of modern tech, but also a sporty demeanor that rivals that of the CX-5. While loaded Titanium models are great if you can find them in our budget, the mid-range Escape SE may be a better fit. See used 2019 Ford Escape models for sale near you

What's so appealing about SUVs? Why have they become so popular in recent years? For starters, they offer more space than their car counterparts, along with a higher seating position and a more commanding view of the road. They're also no longer laggards when it comes to fuel economy, and they come in many different shapes and sizes. Whether you're looking for bargain-basement pricing, top-notch fuel economy or a voluminous interior to fit your Brady Bunch-size brood, we've picked the best used SUVs for you.

So how'd we pick our favorites? It's pretty simple: We focused on vehicles that were sold new in 2016. This crop is a few years old now, which means you're likely to see a lot of lease returns. Many examples will qualify for automakers' certified pre-owned programs, and the factory warranty will still cover some. From there, we looked at our expert ratings to identify the vehicles that performed the best in Edmunds' testing and evaluation. We also relied on Edmunds' robust market data to show the average transaction price for each 2016 model and how much you'll save versus buying new. Finally, we looked at Edmunds' industry-leading consumer ratings to ensure we're only recommending vehicles that are also recommended by their owners. Enjoy!

If you've spent the last few years in a compact car and you're feeling the need for an upgrade, a small SUV might be perfect for you. They offer increased cargo and passenger space without a big trade-off in fuel economy, and their prices are reasonable when you consider their capability. They're great for folks looking to downsize from larger vehicles, too. Here are a few of our top picks.

The Mazda CX-5 is stylish, classy and practical. It's been one of our favorite compact SUVs for years thanks to virtues such as abundant cargo space, a comfortable ride and plenty of passenger space. What's more, the CX-5 feels luxurious for a vehicle in its price range, with top-notch interior quality and a fun-to-drive nature. Notably, this version of the CX-5 was available with two different engines: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a 2.5-liter four-cylinder. Both received respectable EPA fuel economy ratings, but the 2.0-liter engine felt relatively sluggish; the 2.5-liter unit is the one to have. Also of note: The 2017 CX-5 got a full redesign, so 2016 marks the end of an era.

One of the most well-rounded compact SUVs on the market, the Honda CR-V is fuel-efficient, spacious and comfortable. Since its inception in the 1990s, the CR-V has been a leader in its segment, continuously offering a cabin large enough to accommodate four adults (plus their luggage in the back) in an eminently maneuverable and parkable package. More recently, the CR-V has added all sorts of modern safety and tech equipment, and if you find the right used model, you can get features such as Honda's blind-spot camera, lane keeping assist, and forward collision warning with automatic braking. It's also worth noting that the Honda CR-V holds its value very well. It offers only a 27% savings versus new but promises to retain much of that value over time. Like the CX-5, the CR-V received a full redesign for 2017.

When small SUVs just feel a bit too small, a midsize SUV is just what the doctor ordered. This segment covers a wide range of vehicles, from relatively sporty rigs to lumbering family haulers that compete with minivans. Some midsize SUVs are simply larger than their compact brethren, offering more space in a similar five-passenger configuration, while others provide massive three-row cabins with seven- or eight-passenger seating. They may sacrifice a bit of fuel economy, but midsizers boast extra power, space and even luxury. Here are our favorites.

Much like its smaller CX-5 sibling, the Mazda CX-9 feels more luxurious than its price tag would suggest. It offers three rows of seating and relatively modern tech, as well as an excellent interior with top-notch materials. The infotainment interface is easy to use, while the exterior styling is head-turningly sleek. What's more, the CX-9 drives like a smaller, more agile vehicle, so you can have all that family-friendly functionality without giving up on fun. Anyone in the market for a used three-row SUV should take a look at the Mazda CX-9.

Want a few additional frills in your SUV? How about high-quality interior touches or top-notch tech features? Perhaps leather heated seats or a premium sound system? You're more likely to find these items in a used luxury SUV, of course, and we've highlighted our top picks. These used luxury SUVs combine comfort and capability while offering a wide array of upscale standard and optional equipment.

Fitted with a long list of standard features, the Acura RDX is a great example of a used luxury SUV that gives you plenty of equipment without breaking the bank. Even on the base 2016 model, creature comforts include a power liftgate, dual-zone automatic climate control and heated front seats. As you work your way up the ladder, you get into advanced safety features such as lane departure warning and blind-spot monitoring. All of this inside a comfortable and well-built SUV with strong V6 acceleration makes for a great package. It's worth noting that the new RDX (introduced in 2019) only comes with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and some shoppers might prefer the more linear power delivery of the old V6.

See our full list of experts picks for the Best Used Luxury SUVs, from compacts to three-row family haulers. If you want to save some serious cash and still get a great used luxury SUV, let Edmunds be your guide.

While SUVs likely aren't the first vehicles you think of when you hear "best gas mileage," there are some seriously efficient used SUVs available. Check them out; they're ready to save you real money at the pump.

As you can probably tell by this point, there's a used SUV out there for everyone. Whether you're focused on carrying as many passengers as you can or maximizing your mpg, we're confident that you'll find what you're looking for. To narrow down your choices, we recommend you start by selecting the size of SUV you need and then narrow down the search with your required features, your price range and the minimum fuel economy you'll accept. Don't forget to read Edmunds' in-depth expert and consumer reviews before scheduling test drives.

According to Vincentric, the Honda CR-V compact SUV is best in class and has the lowest expected ownership costs given its market segment and price. Why should I buy a used Certified Pre-Owned model versus new?

The CR-V Best Compact SUV/Crossover award shows consumers which vehicle offers the best value if you are looking to buy a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) model versus a new model. You can save thousands of dollars, and still get a good vehicle that will last for years, and it comes with a full warranty for peace of mind.

Compact SUV/Crossover shoppers have a lot of choices between the Subaru Forester, Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape, and Mazda CX-5, and you can save money by buying a CPO vehicle versus new. The Honda CR-V scores best-in-class and is your best choice if you are looking to buy an almost-new compact SUV.

Our recommendations include two tiers of used vehicles, Best Choices and slightly more affordable Good Choices. Starting prices for recommended used models range from about $6,000 to nearly $20,000. A separate list of new vehicles for teens offers an even higher level of safety.

Remember to check for recalls! Use the vehicle identification number or license plate to check for outstanding recalls before buying a used vehicle. To receive future recall notices, notify the manufacturer of your purchase. NHTSA also advises vehicle owners to check its database for new recalls every six months or so.

With a killer combination of affordability, utility and fuel economy, the juggernaut compact SUV class is partially responsible for marginalizing the classic family sedan. Perhaps the most recognized small SUVs in this class are the eternally feuding Honda CR-V and redesigned-for-2019 Toyota RAV4, which we tested in a multiday comparison along with five other 2019 models: the updated Hyundai Tucson, updated Jeep Cherokee, Nissan Rogue, redesigned Subaru Forester and defending champion of this test, the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Last year's full redesign has kept the Lexus NX relevant in the highly competitive compact luxury SUV category. Crisp exterior styling and a thoughtfully designed cabin combine for a luxurious and modern look. The luxe experience continues behind the wheel as the NX glides on the highway with a minimum of road or wind noise. There's enough power for confident passing, but even in its more aggressive F Sport trims, the NX isn't a performance machine. Its most impressive numbers are its fuel-economy ratings, as the hybrid version delivers 39 mpg in mixed driving. Comfortable seats, good forward visibility, and well-placed controls make for a pleasant front-row experience. The rear seats are much tighter, but the cargo area is spacious and easily accommodates several large suitcases. The optional 14-inch touchscreen is a worthwhile addition as it displays clean graphics and offers numerous options. Lexus touts its wide array of voice-activated features, but like most of these systems, it takes practice to get the best results. 041b061a72
