Top 5 Pre-Owned Luxury SUVs
Whether you’re looking for the safest SUV to haul your family across town, or one to haul your gear to the backcountry, there’s no reason not to do it in comfort and style. Some of the best luxury SUVs available are also some of the safest… But which do we like best?
Below are our top five luxury SUVs for the used market. Each will ensure that whatever Mother Nature (or your kids) throws at you… you’ll handle it with class.
The Acura MDX has it all. It’s consistently one of the top choices for a luxury SUV due to the fact that it comes with a high level of standard equipment, is a Top Safety Pick award winner and is a perfect combination of practicality and class. Many second generation models come with a combination of technology, sport and/or entertainment packages, making the Acura MDX an excellent used SUV that you can also find equipped as needed. Check our inventory and you’ll see that one of the best luxury SUVs out there doesn’t have to be out of reach.
With BMW’s iDrive system as standard equipment and, for the first time, an optional 3rd row seat that allows for 7 passengers, the second generation BMW X5 (2006-2013) is high on our list of best luxury SUVs. The 2013 BMW X5 also received 4/5 stars in overall crash rating from the NHTSA, making it one of the safest SUVs in the luxury category. BMWs have always stood for performance and luxury, and BMW owners take pride in their vehicles. If you’re looking for an extra thrill, look for models with the optional V8 engine, which, depending on the model year, offer up to 355 horsepower!
You can’t have the best luxury SUV discussion without mentioning the Lexus RX. This crossover luxury SUV has been on the road since 1998 making it one of the earliest luxury SUV crossovers, and competitors and consumers alike have taken note. Now in its third generation, the Lexus RX has optional safety features such as a pre-collision system and a heads-up display (HUD) which displays speed, navigation and audio information right on the windshield. The NHTSA gave the RX a 5-star overall rating making it one of the safest SUVs you can buy. Since they’ve been around for so long, finding clean late-model examples in the low $20Ks is common.
If the Lexus RX doesn’t quite give you everything you need, the Lexus GX might be just what you’re looking for. Along with the added power of a V8 engine, the GX offers more options and boasts more passenger and cargo room. Among others, awards including highest ranked premium luxury SUV in initial quality (J.D. Power & Associates, 2005) and Best Resale Value Award (Kelley Blue Book, 2006). These accolades help make the Lexus GX an excellent used SUV choice and solidify its spot on our best luxury SUV list.
Second and third generation Mercedes M-Class SUVs are another great option when searching for a used luxury SUV. The M-Class was named best luxury SUV crossover and has been named the most ideal vehicle for Americans based on a study by AutoPacific, an automotive research and consulting firm. Mercedes is recognized the world over and a well-maintained Mercedes ML is a solid choice for a used SUV.
