The 10 best used SUVs to buy

SUVs offer a combination of robust style and spacious interiors that will touch a sensitive string if you have a family but you don’t want to have to drive something as boring as a refrigerator on wheels.

And that’s not all. The high bodywork brings an additional feeling of security during driving and offers you a breathtaking view of the road. If you opt for a four -wheel drive model, the additional grip means that you risk being less blocked by a snow downpour.

Thanks to depreciation, a one -year car with a few thousand kilometers on the clock can make the dream SUV accessible after the first buyer absorbed the heavy loss of initial value.

What to look for when buying a used car

Buying a used car should not scare you if you perform some basic checks. You must make sure that it is in good condition, inside and outside, that the engine is solid and that the papers are in order. Make a check to check the history of the car never hurts either. Continue to read to discover the carwow guide on the best used SUVs.

  • BMW X3
  • Kia Niro
  • Nissan Qashqai
  • Ford Kuga
  • Hyundai Kona Electric

1. Skoda Karoq

Skoda Karoq Used

The best used SUV for intelligent characteristics that make your life easier.
Recommended finish: SE L
Recommended engine: 1.5 liter turbo petrol
Number of seats: 5
Chest volume: 521 liters
If you are looking for an excellent used SUV, you cannot be mistaken with the Skoda Karoq, and you will find a wide choice of models for sale. It is an elegant car, with a daring grille and a daring style. The interior is not exactly exciting to look at, but it is intuitive to use and spacious. You can even completely remove the rear seats if you need additional space.

The only thing to avoid is the 1.0 -liter petrol engine, very slow. 1.5 -liter turbo petrol has a lot of punch and allows decent fuel saving. Karoq equipment is generous throughout the range. All models receive an 8.0 -inch standard touch screen with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, as well as air conditioning in two areas.

2. Volvo XC40

Volvo XC 40

Used price from: € 22,910

Best used SUV for her funky style
Recommended finish: departure
Recommended engine: 1.5 T2
Number of seats: 5
Chest volume: 578 liters
The Volvo XC40 is an elegant SUV that gives off a typically Swedish freshness. Unlike the larger and more adult Volvo SUVs, it can be equipped with shiny interior finishes which add a dose of fun. If the interior has a few nice design touches, it is not up to other Volvo models in terms of the quality of the materials. Despite its small size, the vehicle remains as safe and practical as you expect from a Volvo SUV, and it is remarkably comfortable.

The suspension absorbs the bumps well and the cabin is silent, while petrol and diesel engines offer decent performance and are economic. There are also rechargeable and fully electric hybrid versions of the XC40 which can be interesting if you are looking for something more ecological.

3. BMW X3

BMW x3 xDrive 30th occasion

Used price from: € 5,000

Best used SUV for interior construction quality
Recommended finish: M Sport
Recommended engine: XDRIVE 20D
Number of seats: 5
Chest volume: 450 liters
It is difficult to criticize the BMW X3 as a versatile SUV. It is pleasant to drive, while being comfortable, and has a range of engines that offers everything, from fuel saving to sports car performance. The interior is as luxurious as what can be expected from a BMW, infotainment is impressive and there is a lot of space for people and business. All the things you expect from a BMW are not positive, however. Like Android Auto ? Well, you will have to equip your X3 with this option, as it was not available for purchase until recently.

If you mainly drive in town, choose one of the petrol models, because they are soft, silent and dynamic. If you make more journeys on the highway, you will want one of the diesel models for their increased economy. The 20D, which is the entry -level diesel engine, offers enough power and makes it possible to obtain good consumption. If you are looking for the performance of a sports car for your SUV, the M40i, the high end, will fill you. It is equipped with a 3.0 -liter petrol engine developing 360 horsepower. However, it will be thirsty and will cost you much more than the lower models in the range.

4. Kia Niro

Used price from: 15,500 €
Best SUV for its value for money
Recommended finish: 2
Recommended engine: 1.6 hybrid
Number of seats: 5
Chest volume: 382 liters
Kia Niro is an excellent choice if you are looking for an alternative fuel SUV. It is available in a classic hybrid version, rechargeable hybrid or even entirely electric, and it is impressive in all its forms. The cabin is spacious, and the driving is very easy and comfortable. The volume of the trunk is not the best, but as all the kia are covered by a seven -year -old transferable guarantee, you have a quiet mind in the improbable case where something would not work with your used niro.

The equipment is also generous throughout the range. All models have a touch screen with Apple Carplay and Android Auto as standard, while higher-end cars receive an improved JBL speaker system. The interior may not be the most exciting to look at, but all the orders are logically arranged and it should not take you too much time to get used to it.

5. Nissan Qashqai

Used price from: € 4,100

Best used SUV for versatile family driving
Recommended finish: ACENTA Premium
Recommended engine: 1.3 essence
Number of seats: 5
Trunk volume: 504 liters
The Nissan Qashqai is one of the most widespread SUVs on French roads, and it is easy to understand why. This highly appreciated option is comfortable and pleasant to drive, and its operating costs are remarkably low, whatever the engine chosen. The interior of Qashqai is nothing special, however, and there are more practical options on the market. It is worth looking for a car equipped with the ingenious technology for assistance to the propilot driver of Nissan.

Two engines are offered for Qashqai, both with petrol with light hybrid assistance. This means that there is a battery on board that increases engine efficiency. It is best to choose the most powerful engine with the automatic gearbox, because it has a lot of power and the automatic gearbox relieves daily driving.

6. Ford Kuga

Ford Kuga Used

Used price from: 6000 €

Best used SUV for driving pleasure
Recommended finish: St-Line x Edition
Recommended engine: PHEV 2.5 -liter petrol
Number of seats: 5
Chest volume: 612 liters
The Ford Kuga is the used SUV to favor if you are looking for a vehicle pleasant to drive. Its direction is direct and responsive, and there is not too much inclination of the body to deplore – even if the driving can be a little jumper on the roads in poor condition. Nor is there anything to complain about in terms of motorization: you have the choice between essence, diesel and petrol-electric hybrids. Inside, the Kuga has an elegant design and space for four people, but the interior quality is a bit uneven and the batteries of hybrid models take a large part of the space of the trunk.

The Kuga represents a good value for money if you consider what you get, a large and practical family SUV with a lot of equipment on board. All models receive an infotainment system with decent touch screen, and overall the interior is well arranged and easy to use. It’s just a shame that it doesn’t have the quality of construction of certain alternatives.

7. Hyundai Kona Electric

Hyundai Kona electric

Used price from: 23,500 €

The best used SUV to drive in electric car with a tight budget.
Recommended finish: Premium
Recommended engine: 150kW 64kWh
Number of seats: 5
Volume of the trunk: 332 liters
For a SUV who will not fail to turn the heads, take a look at the Hyundai Kona Electric. Its funky and eccentric style is accompanied by a multitude of equipment and an experience of fun driving, as well as a great autonomy – 302 km or 446 km depending on your choice of battery. The silent nature of electric motors makes the Kona Electric Electric very relaxing, and overall, it is a very efficient vehicle.

The interior does not have the same plume as other electric vehicles on the market, but it is well constructed and well equipped. The trunk is narrow and, given the popularity of the Kona Electric, second -hand copies are a bit rare and expensive for the moment. But if you can get one, it is worth it if you are looking to switch to electric.

8. Skoda Kodiaq

Skoda Kodiaq RS

Used price from: € 20,200

The best quality/price ratio of used SUVs offering seven places.
Recommended finish: Sport Line
Recommended engine: 1.5 tsi
Number of seats: 5 or 7
Chest volume: 835 liters (seven seats)
The Skoda Kodiaq has everything, and could well be the perfect family SUV. It is elegant outside, logical to use and well constructed inside. It also offers a lot of space for four adults, a large trunk and the possibility of having two additional seats. You have a wide choice of engines, four -wheel drive and an automatic gearbox.

The 1.5 -liter petrol turbo engine offers sufficient performance to meet the needs of most people, and it also allows decent fuel savings. Thanks to its comfort and generous equipment, the Kodiaq would be an ideal companion for a family trip. It’s just a shame that it is not as comfortable as a chic SUV and that it does not have the technology that we find in a VW.

9. Volvo XC90

Volvo XC 90 Used

Used price from: € 10,000

The best used SUV to transport seven people in style.
Recommended finish: more
Recommended engine: B5D
Number of seats: 5 or 7
Chest volume: up to 451 liters
If you want a really chic SUV, look no further than the Volvo XC90. This large Swedish is one of the most elegant and refined SUVs on the market, and it is just as functional. It has a multitude of safety equipment and the interior is very comfortable. It can accommodate seven people and, although the rear row is rather small, the trunk is large, regardless of the number of people sitting in the XC90.

The best engine to choose is the B5D, a diesel engine with a soft 48 -volt hybrid system to improve efficiency. It saves more than 65 km per hour, depending on your driving style, and behaves well on the highway. Certain alternatives are however more comfortable, and some will have a third row of larger seats.
