10 Best Used Midsize Luxury SUVs Under $30,000

Sure, you could spend $30,000 on a brand-new SUV, but savvy shoppers know that a used luxury SUV for the same money trades a few miles on the odometer for loads of luxury, refinement and performance. Here’s a look at 10 of the top used midsize luxury SUVs you’ll come across for $30,000 or less.

2017 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid

2018 Mazda CX-9
Mazda splits the difference between mainstream and luxury with its spacious, family-friendly CX-9.

Drivers in warmer climates can opt for a less-costly rear-wheel-drive version, too. Find a Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class for sale
