8 Good Used Luxury SUVs Under $10,000 for 2019

If you’ve been tempted by the excellent new luxury crossovers and SUVs on the market but can’t find a way to fit one into your budget, you’re in luck. The market is flush with affordable used luxury SUVs with a ton of good options at affordable prices — and some of them are more modern and luxurious than you might expect for this price range.

Here are eight good used luxury SUVs you can find on Autotrader for under $10,000 in 2019.

2007-2013 Acura MDX

2007-2013 Acura MDX

The Acura MDX is an old favorite family-friendly 3-row crossover with luxurious appointments that’s fun to drive. The MDX is also an excellent value on the used market, and you might be surprised by how nice this Acura can be in this price range. Other SUVs in this class might perform better and have nicer interiors, but the MDX is a jack-of-all-trades, and it checks a lot of boxes for a lot of drivers. Find an Acura MDX for sale

2009-2012 Audi Q5

2009-2012 Audi Q5

If you’re shopping for German luxury SUVs on a budget, the first-generation Audi Q5 is one of your best options. Audi has built a reputation for its top-notch interiors and impressive driving dynamics and the Q5 is no exception. A powerful V6 and all-wheel drive are standard, and it achieves excellent safety scores and impressive fuel economy for a V6 AWD crossover. The Q5 is fun in the corners, smooth on the highway and a great compact SUV overall. Find an Audi Q5 for sale

2004-2010 BMW X3

2004-2010 BMW X3

The first BMW X3 is, not surprisingly, the BMW of compact crossovers. It delivers on all of the points that BMW is famous for, and it’s a refined luxury vehicle that prioritizes the driving experience above all else. The performance is so good that it might make you forget that you’re in an SUV and not a sports sedan. It’s also comfortable and well-designed, with an interior that’s genuinely BMW. Like the Q5, every first-gen X3 comes standard with AWD, which provides traction in all seasons. Find a BMW X3 for sale

2002-2006 Cadillac Escalade

2002-2006 Cadillac Escalade

This Cadillac Escalade wasn’t the first Escalade, but it was the version that made the Escalade iconic. Cadillacs from this short model run are aging well, with a classy and imposing look that still holds up. As it’s based on the Chevrolet Tahoe, the Escalade is quite trucklike in its ride, but it’s also trucklike in its hauling and towing capabilities, which is great if you’re looking for a spacious luxury SUV that can do some serious towing. Find a Cadillac Escalade for sale

2004-2009 Lexus RX

2004-2009 Lexus RX

The Lexus RX was a game-changer when it debuted in the late 1990s, and it only got better in its second generation. The second generation is where Lexus introduced the RX Hybrid, which augmented the RX’s many virtues — such as its smooth, comfortable ride, its roomy interior and its rock-solid reliability — with great fuel economy. The RX is even strong enough to compete with some of its German rivals. Find a Lexus RX for sale

2007-2015 Lincoln MKX

2007-2015 Lincoln MKX

Based on the Ford Edge, the Lincoln MKX took a practical midsize crossover with surprisingly strong performance and made it more luxurious. It gets excellent marks for safety and reliability, and its sedanlike driving dynamics make it one of the best players in this competitive segment. You might be surprised by some of the luxury features available in this Lincoln, such as the panoramic moonroof and some ahead-of-its-time safety tech. Find a Lincoln MKX for sale

2006-2012 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class

2006-2012 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class

Mercedes-Benz makes big SUVs about as well as it makes big sedans — which is saying a lot. The GL-Class that ran from 2006-2012 just about has it all: Its 3-row interior is genuinely luxurious and packed with features, and its sedanlike driving experience is both comfortable and lively. Performance is excellent no matter which engine you choose, but we recommend the V8 if you can find one in your budget. Find a Mercedes-Benz GL-Class for sale

2010-2016 Volvo XC60

2010-2016 Volvo XC60

If Swedish quirkiness is your thing, you’ll find a lot to love in the Volvo XC60. It boasts safety scores at the top of its class, which is typical of a Volvo, but safety isn’t all this crossover has going for it. It also boasts an optional turbocharged engine (which we recommend over the base 6-cylinder), comfortable seating and a ton of cargo space for a compact SUV. This is one of the more family-oriented luxury crossovers in its class, but that doesn’t mean it’s not fun for the driver, too. Find a Volvo XC60 for sale
