ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

If you're interested in buying a luxury SUV, you may have realized that increasing prices are making it difficult to afford some of the latest models. As a result, you may turn to used luxury SUVs -- only to find yourself getting nervous about maintenance and repairs. If that sounds like you, we suggest considering a certified pre-owned (CPO) luxury SUV. These programs offer manufacturer-backed warranties on slightly used vehicles, which means you can get a good discount compared to a new model and the peace of mind that comes with a full warranty.

2013-2015 Acura RDX

The Acura RDX is a popular luxury crossover that straddles the border between compact and midsize. Although we enjoyed the first-generation RDX, which was offered from 2007 to 2012, we especially prefer the second-generation model, which came out in 2013. It's larger than its predecessor, and it touts a powerful standard V6 instead of the earlier model's turbocharged 4-cylinder. Despite the bigger engine, however, fuel efficiency is excellent: The RDX returns up to 20 miles per gallon in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. It's also loaded with standard features, including dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a sunroof, a backup camera and an iPod interface. And with more than 250 different certified pre-owned 2013-2015 RDX models listed on Autotrader for around $30,000 or less, you should have no trouble finding one with Acura's excellent certified pre-owned warranty, which provides bumper-to-bumper coverage for 1 year or 12,000 miles and powertrain protection for 7 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date.

2011-2014 Buick Enclave

If you're looking for a family-friendly luxury crossover with an excellent CPO warranty, we suggest you look no further than the 2011-2014 Buick Enclave. Indeed, there are more than 500 different 2011-2014 Enclave models available on Autotrader for less than $30,000 with Buick's excellent certified pre-owned warranty, which touts 1 year or 12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage and 6 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection. There are so many, in fact, that we think you'd have no trouble finding an upscale Enclave Premium, which touts heated and ventilated front seats, a 10-speaker Bose stereo, leather upholstery and rear cross-traffic alert. In addition to those luxuries, you'll also get standard 3-row seating, side-curtain airbags and a muscular 288-horsepower 3.6-liter V6, which makes the Enclave perfect for families interested in a high-end SUV.

2010-2013 Lexus RX

The Lexus RX is one of the most popular luxury crossovers on the market for good reason. Although the SUV only offers 2-row seating, it boasts a smooth ride, a luxurious interior and a lot of equipment. Standard items include keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic headlights and dual power front seats. We also love Lexus' excellent 3-year or 100,000-mile certified pre-owned warranty, which is one of the best in the business -- and that's why we highly recommend a certified pre-owned 2010-2013 RX. It should be no trouble to find, as there are currently around 130 listed on Autotrader within our budget.

2011-2014 Lincoln MKX

Although the Lincoln MKX has never achieved the same level of success as rivals such as the Lexus RX and Acura MDX, the midsize crossover offers many of the same benefits. There's a smooth ride, a powerful V6 (with a muscular 305 hp) and a long list of standard features that includes a power lift gate, dual-zone automatic climate control, the increasingly easy-to-use MyLincoln Touch infotainment system, keyless ignition and entry and 18-inch alloy wheels. And while a new MKX can be pricy, certified pre-owned models offer a great deal: There are currently over 300 different 2011-2014 examples listed on Autotrader for under $30,000 with Lincoln's certified pre-owned warranty, which includes bumper-to-bumper coverage for up to 6 years or 100,000 miles from the vehicle's original sale date.

2011-2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class

If you're looking for a smaller SUV with a luxurious flair, we highly recommend the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. In addition to standout styling and a powerful 270-hp 3.5-liter V6, all 2011-2014 GLK350 models offer a long list of standard features that includes dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic headlights and wipers and dual power front seats. We recommend making sure the model you choose also has the Premium package, which adds a panoramic sunroof, a power lift gate and parking sensors -- and maybe even the Multimedia package, which touts a navigation system, an iPod interface, a backup camera and real-time traffic information. Think it'll be too expensive? Think again: There are currently more than 150 different 2011-2014 GLK models available on Autotrader for less than $30,000 with Mercedes' certified pre-owned warranty, which offers 1 year and unlimited miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage once the original warranty ends.

2012-2014 MINI Countryman

Although the MINI Countryman may not quite have the upscale badge of many models on our list, it certainly has the upscale features. That's especially true if you go for a well-optioned Countryman S, which can include up to 211 hp and luxuries such as a 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, a giant dual-pane sunroof, leather upholstery and keyless ignition and entry. You'll also get MINI's legendary sports-car-like handling, which is unparalleled by any model on our list. And prices are lower than most rivals, too: There are currently more than 250 different certified pre-owned 2012-2014 Countryman models on Autotrader, most of which offer a wide array of features and equipment -- and all of which come with MINI's excellent certified pre-owned warranty, which touts bumper-to-bumper coverage for up to 6 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date.

2010-2014 Volvo XC60

There are many reasons why the Volvo XC60 is one of our favorite luxury crossovers. One is the standard automatic braking system, which can help you avoid low-speed collisions in traffic -- and help keep your insurance premiums down. We also like the handsome styling, the luxurious interior and the engine choices that range from frugal to powerful. Pricing is high, though, so you may want to consider a certified pre-owned model. You'll have no trouble finding one within our budget, as there are around 120 different certified pre-owned 2010-2014 XC60s on Autotrader for $30,000 or less. Not only do these certified pre-owned versions boast discounted pricing compared to a new XC60, but they tout Volvo's excellent certified pre-owned program, which is among our favorites thanks to 7 years or 100,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage from the original sale date.
