ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

A budget of $30,000 goes a long way when you're shopping for a used luxury SUV. Thirty grand is less than the cost of the average new car -- which means that for less than the price of a new car, you can get a modern, comfortable luxury SUV with lots of technology and versatility.

Here are eight excellent used luxury SUVs that you can find on Autotrader for less than $30,000.

2014-2016 Acura MDX

2014-2016 Acura MDX

The Acura MDX is mechanically similar to the Honda Pilot, which is great if you're looking for a safe, affordable vehicle. Its strong, efficient V6 engine and composed handling make the MDX surprisingly competitive with more expensive European rivals. It also has a comfortable 3-row interior, making it at once luxurious and family-friendly. Find an Acura MDX for sale

2013-2017 Audi Q5

2013-2017 Audi Q5

The post-face-lift first-generation Audi Q5 currently sits in a sweet spot of value. It has the virtues you'd expect from anything with an Audi badge -- agile handling, top-notch interior quality, classy styling -- in the form of a versatile SUV. It even comes standard with Audi's famous quattro all-wheel-drive system, which is great for performance and all-weather traction. If you're lucky, you might even find a high-performance SQ5 powered by a supercharged V6 at this price point. Find an Audi Q5 for sale

2015-2017 BMW X3

2015-2017 BMW X3

The BMW X3 got a nice face-lift in 2015, receiving a more aggressive style that was more in line with the brand's design language at the time. Like the Audi Q5, the BMW X3 is a compact crossover that does a great job exemplifying its respective brand by being driver-focused with excellent performance but also giving you versatility with a roomy cabin and cargo area. The base engine gets good gas mileage, but we wouldn't blame you for upgrading to the available 300-hp turbocharged 6-cylinder. Find a BMW X3 for sale

2007-2014 Cadillac Escalade

2007-2014 Cadillac Escalade

When you want it all in a plus-size SUV, the Cadillac Escalade delivers. It offers true trucklike capabilities, thanks to its strong standard V8 engine, without skimping on luxury and style. The third-generation Escalade is the one you'll find most commonly at this price point. You have your choice of the standard-wheelbase Escalade, the long-wheelbase ESV model or the EXT model, which is part SUV and part pickup truck. If you're looking for a luxury SUV that can haul the whole family -- and their stuff -- while towing a boat without breaking a sweat, the Escalade is ready when you are. Find a Cadillac Escalade for sale

2016-2019 Infiniti QX60

2016-2019 Infiniti QX60

The Infiniti QX60 is a 3-row midsize crossover that actually has a third row that's both pretty roomy and fairly easy to access. Add to that third-row usability excellent fuel economy and a quiet, comfortable cabin, and this Infiniti's a winner. It might not offer the sharp performance of its German rivals, but its smooth ride and roomy interior make it an excellent road trip vehicle. Find an Infiniti QX60 for sale

2013-2015 Lexus RX 450h

2013-2015 Lexus RX 450h

It's hard to talk about good values in used luxury SUVs without bringing up the venerable Lexus RX. As you might expect, this Lexus passed its safety and reliability tests with flying colors, making it one of the most trustworthy SUVs in this competitive class. The hybrid RX 450h returns excellent fuel economy, and the roomy interior makes it a versatile crossover. The hybrid model is less common than the conventional RX 350 -- if you're having a hard time finding a hybrid RX near you for less than $30,000, the nonhybrid counterpart is a great alternative. Find a Lexus RX 450h for sale

2015-2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250

2015-2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250

The Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 is one of those cars where you just kind of have to get it. Its unconventional shape blurs the lines between SUV, hatchback and wagon, and if you're into that ambiguity, this is a strong luxury value. On top of its head-turning look, the GLA's virtues include a premium interior, sharp handling and a generous list of standard features, including modern driver-assistance technology like automatic emergency braking. Find a Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 for sale

2011-2014 Porsche Cayenne

2011-2014 Porsche Cayenne

If performance is your top priority when shopping for a used luxury SUV, then you should definitely consider the Porsche Cayenne. It has the outstanding handling and strong available engines you'd expect from a Porsche, plus a lovely interior that we think is aging very well. Every Cayenne benefits from standard AWD -- it's a Porsche that you can drive year-round, even in snowy climates. Find a Porsche Cayenne for sale
