If you’re looking for luxury with a less-than-luxurious budget, the used market has some great deals for you. A modest budget of $15,000 can go a long way if you’re looking for a luxury SUV that combines comfort, class and utility with little compromise.
Here are seven great used luxury SUVs you can find on Autotrader for less than $15,000 in 2019.
2009-2017 Audi Q5
The first-generation Audi Q5 had a pretty long production run, and the earlier examples are getting pretty affordable. Most Q5 models you find in this price range will be from before the 2013 refresh, which added an available supercharged V6 and a hybrid option. Regardless of what year you go with, the Q5 is a very competent compact crossover that combines comfort, style, technology and performance in one fuel-efficient package. Find an Audi Q5 for sale
2007-2013 BMW X5
The second-generation BMW X5 is in a sweet value spot if you’re looking for a good deal on a midsize luxury SUV. This is the first BMW ever with an optional third row of seats, and its family-friendliness doesn’t put a damper on its fun-to-drive character. This is still a BMW at heart. It has tight handling, lively engines and pretty generous cargo space, especially with the back seats folded down. Find a BMW X5 for sale
2010-2016 Cadillac SRX
The second and final iteration of the Cadillac SRX is a stylish and comfortable midsize, two-row SUV. The ride is smooth and quiet, the interior is attractive and comfortable, and you get a good amount of cargo space. If you’re shopping for an SRX, we recommend the 2012 model year or newer since it got a new standard V6 engine that year, delivering impressive performance. If you opt for a 2010 to 2011 model, you get a choice of a naturally aspirated or turbocharged V6. Find a Cadillac SRX for sale
2005-2009 Land Rover LR3
Looking to go off the beaten path in your luxury SUV? The Land Rover LR3 has some real off-road chops for your more adventurous side. Full disclosure: The LR3 isn’t the most comfortable, most luxurious or most fuel-efficient SUV in its class, but its off-road capabilities are almost unmatched when it comes to luxury SUVs. It also has an interesting look that blends the classic Land Rover styling with some modern flair. Find a Land Rover LR3 for sale
2010-2015 Lexus RX
You knew this list wouldn’t be complete without a Lexus RX in the mix. With a budget of $15,000, you can get a really nice third-generation Lexus RX that has all of the virtues this nameplate has become famous for. It’s safe, reliable, luxurious and efficient (especially the hybrid), all at a price point that won’t break the bank. If you just want a comfortable crossover you can count on, either as a commuter or as a family car, you can’t go wrong with an RX. Find a Lexus RX for sale
2007-2014 Lincoln Navigator
If you like the idea of a big, full-size luxury SUV with a lot of seats and a big V8 engine, the Lincoln Navigator is a great choice. A pre-facelift, third-generation model — which has a lot of style and a lot of space — is the one you’re most likely to find in this price point. It has the comfortable ride quality you’d expect and reasonable ownership costs for a luxury vehicle, especially one this size. Few luxury vehicles are as well suited to carry the whole family while towing a boat as the Navigator is. Find a Lincoln Navigator for sale
2010-2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class
The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is the predecessor of what we know today as the GLC-Class. This compact SUV was a class-leader in its day for its elegant interior and excellent performance. The ride is smooth, the engines are strong, and the handling is almost as sharp as a comparable sport sedan. It also received excellent safety scores, which is just part of what makes it a great SUV for small families. The fact that it has an aesthetic that’s aging well doesn’t hurt either.
