5 Best Used Subcompact SUVs Under $12,000

The Subcompact SUV segment is relatively new in the automotive world, but it’s one that’s been growing quickly. A good subcompact SUV combines the efficiency and driveability of a subcompact car but adds the versatility of an SUV with little compromise.

Here are 5 of the best used subcompact SUVs you can find on Autotrader under $12,000.

2015 Buick Encore

2015 Buick Encore

Buick is traditionally known for its big sedans and wagons, but it turns out this old American brand is great at making small SUVs, too. Blurring the line between mainstream and luxury, the premium Encore is comfortable, efficient, and well-appointed with an impressive list of standard features on every trim.

2017 Fiat 500X

2017 Fiat 500X

The distinctly Italian 2017 Fiat 500X is one of the more modern subcompact crossovers you can get with a four-digit price tag. It’s mechanically identical to the more popular Jeep Renegade. However, it’s depreciating at a faster rate making it a good buy on the used market. This Fiat is a small SUV with a big personality. Find a Fiat 500X for sale

2013 Mini Cooper Countryman

2013 Mini Cooper Countryman

The biggest Mini is still pretty small compared to most SUVs. The Mini Cooper Countryman has all of the charms of a Mini with its unique aesthetics and enjoyable driving experience. It also has a roomy cabin compared to its more compact counterparts making it a more practical choice for most shoppers. Find a Mini Cooper Countryman for sale

2016 Nissan Juke

2016 Nissan Juke

With an aesthetic that’s still not quite like anything else on the road, the Nissan Juke is a true stand-out. It may not be the most family-friendly SUV, but it’s roomy enough for just you with some occasional passengers. The Juke is well balanced with lively acceleration, agile handling, and excellent fuel economy. Find a Nissan Juke for sale

2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek

2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek

Standard all-wheel-drive, a fun color palette, and a just-right size are what have made the Subaru XV Crosstrek a hit. Its engine won’t win any drag races, but it’s great on gas which helps keep running costs down. The pint-size XV Crosstrek also has the real off-road chops that you would expect from a Subaru.
