SUVs are among the most popular vehicles in the United States, and for good reason. They are spacious, sporty, and comfortable. Whether you want to drop your kids off at school or enjoy off-roading during the weekend, an SUV is a great choice. The only drawback is that SUVs can get a little expensive. If you are on a tight budget, it doesn’t mean you should give up all hope of owning an SUV. Fortunately, there are a number of used SUVs in the market. And, if you pick a good model, your used SUV will last you a number of years. Here, we’ve listed out some of the most reliable SUVs in the market today.
2010 Honda CR-V
The CR-V is an affordable compact SUV that offers a lot of cargo room, a comfortable cabin, and really good safety scores. The only real drawback is the slightly underpowered engines. But, it’s fuel efficiency more than makes up for the engine. Expect to find this model priced between $7,682 and $10,069.
2010 Chevrolet Tahoe
The three-row Tahoe is one of the larger SUVs, with enough space to seat up to eight people in the standard setup. The models with the optional first-row bench seat can seat up to a total of 9 people! So, if you carpool a lot or have a large family, this one makes a great choice. Speaking of the performance, the Tahoe gives you enough power for your commute, while maintaining pretty decent fuel efficiency. You’ll find this model priced anywhere between $12,150 and $17,344.
2016 Hyundai Tucson
The Tucson was redesigned before its launch in 2016. The seats in this SUV are all nicely cushioned, and it has a number of standard features like a rearview camera and a cool infotainment system. The SUV’s fuel economy figures are also quite comparable to other similar models. The 2016 Tucson is typically priced between $15,337 and $20,534.
2010 Toyota RAV4
Available starting at around $6,254 and going up to $10,216, the Toyota RAV4 is a great compact SUV with decent fuel-efficiency. The stronger V6 engine is also available as an option, and it only has a small impact on the fuel efficiency of the SUV. The first two rows of the RAV4 are quite spacious, but the third row is best left for children. The cargo room, however, is quite generous.
