8 Great CPO Compact SUVs Under $25,000 for 2019

The compact crossover segment has been blowing up over the last several years and it’s not hard to see why. Compact SUVs offer SUV versatility combined with the benefits of a small car like good fuel economy, agile handling, and affordable pricing. These crossovers get even more affordable after they’ve gone through a few years of depreciation and hit the certified pre-owned market. A CPO SUV is a good buy if you’re looking for a nice discount compared to a new car while still getting a manufacturer’s warranty. The CPO market also makes luxury SUVs that you might not normally be able to afford more within reach.

Here are eight great CPO compact SUVs you can find on Autotrader for less than $25,000 in 2019.

2017-2019 Honda CR-V

2017-2019 Honda CR-V

With the most recent redesign of the Honda CR-V, Honda managed to make one of the best compact crossovers even better. It remains one of the roomiest crossovers in this segment with tons of room for both passengers and cargo and it also returns excellent fuel economy. We recommend finding one with the optional turbocharged engine, which improves both performance and efficiency over the base engine. Find a Honda CR-V for sale

2014-2019 Jeep Cherokee

2014-2019 Jeep Cherokee

If you’re looking for a small SUV with a little off-road attitude, look for a CPO Jeep Cherokee. The Cherokee has a distinct Jeep aesthetic and it has the off-road chops to back it up when equipped with 4-wheel drive, especially the Trailhawk model. The Cherokee is also good on-road with an intuitive infotainment system and a spacious cabin. Its available V6 engine makes this Jeep a bit more muscular than most of its competitors and can tow up to 4,500 pounds. Find a Jeep Cherokee for sale

It’s not the fastest or the most opulent luxury SUV, but if you’re looking for something a little more upscale than the more mainstream offerings, this nice Buick is worth a look. Find a Buick Envision for sale
