10 Best Used Two-Row SUVs Under $20,000

2015 Subaru Outback

  • Overview

  • Specifications

  • Expert Reviews

The Outback may look more like a traditional station wagon, but it has the same kind of roomy cabin and cargo carrying capacity as the best 2-row crossover SUVs. Plus, the Outback has the distinction of coming with all-wheel drive as standard equipment. This versatile vehicle is equally at home in the city as it is in the great outdoors.

2015 GMC Terrain

  • Overview

  • Specifications

  • Expert Reviews

While many compact SUVs tend to favor swoopy exteriors, the Terrain is more truck-like than car-like in execution. That approach is consistent with the mission of GM’s truck division. Terrain offers several engine choices, including a V6. We like the 1-SLT trim that includes leather upholstery, heated seats, and a remote starter.

2015 Ford Edge

  • Overview

  • Specifications

  • Expert Reviews

In 2015, the Edge received a makeover that resulted in a look that’s still fresh.  Among 2-row SUVs, the Edge is more of a midsize entry than a compact, so it’s big on the outside with fairly good cabin and load space. In addition to a standard V6 and turbo 4-cylinder trims, the Edge Sport boasts 315 horsepower from its twin-turbo V6

  • Expert Reviews

The Jeep Cherokee stands out for its polarizing design that’s a futuristic take on the division’s traditional 7-slot grille. This compact SUV has plenty to offer, including the off-road-ready Trailhawk trim. Look to step up to the optional V6 as well as the larger 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment touchscreen. There’s also a well-appointed Summit trim for those looking for all the bells and whistles.

2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser

  • Overview

  • Specifications

  • Expert Reviews

Nostalgia plays a big role in the styling of the retro FJ Cruiser. It’s a 2-row SUV, but unlike most conventional 4-doors, it has two rear access panels that open only when the front doors are open. Built on a shorted 4Runner body-on-frame platform, the V6 FJ offers plenty of off-road capability. The resale value went up for a while when the FJ ceased production.

2018 Mazda CX-5

  • Overview

  • Specifications

  • Expert Reviews

The CX-5 checks many boxes on the compact SUV list of wants and then some, including a premium look inside and out and great handling. What you do give up is the room and load-carrying capability of some of its stodgier rivals. While it doesn’t possess serious off-road capability, its available AWD performs well in bad weather.

2017 Nissan Murano

  • Overview

  • Specifications

  • Expert Reviews

The Murano comes across as more of an urbane city dweller than a flannel-shirted outdoorsy type. It has the 5-passenger comfort you expect from a 2-row SUV in a package that is sleek and sophisticated. Adding to that character is the standard V6 power and front-drive layout. AWD is available, but it’s there more for rain, snow, and slush instead of trail running.

2014 Volkswagen Touareg

  • Overview

  • Specifications

  • Expert Reviews

This bold and brawny VW is the antithesis of what you’d expect from a German automaker specializing in compact cars. However, the Touareg is a capable, rugged 2-row SUV that shares a pedigree with the Porsche Cayenne. With a turbodiesel V6, you’ll get fairly good gas mileage to go along with its off-road and towing capabilities.

2018 Hyundai Tucson

  • Overview

  • Specifications

  • Expert Reviews

The Tucson is a stylish, compact 2-row SUV that offers a high level of equipment for the money. It’s available with a choice of a non-turbo and turbo 4-cylinder engines (we’d opt for the more powerful of the two) as well as front- or all-wheel drive. The 2018 model is new enough to still carry some of Hyundai’s class-leading bumper-to-bumper and powertrain warranties.
