Luxury sport utility vehicles are a good option for buying on the used market. Late model used luxury sport utility vehicles have the benefit of providing comfort and style at a lower price than new. And since luxury SUVs are some of the most powerful vehicles on the market, used SUVs are still fun to drive, even a few years after they’ve originally come off the dealer lot.
So what makes a luxury sport utility vehicle? One way to look at it is that they’re sport utility vehicles that have been punched up in every way possible, to attract the attention of big spenders. Another way to think about them is as luxury cars that have spread out into an SUV body. It seems as if auto manufacturers have taken both approaches to designing luxury SUVs. Some seem more oriented toward the sport utility aspect; others seem to project the luxuriousness as a bigger and more important factor. When buying used, the vehicle’s original marketing strategy might not be as persuasive as it was to new buyers (although it might still affect how a used vehicle is publically perceived). The features and options might be a little older, but most late model luxury sport utility vehicles will be built with high quality components that retain their value and still work well. The interior should still be in good condition, and so should the engine and other mechanical components. Even if it’s lost its initial freshness, a potential new-to-you luxury SUV should still feel solid and work well. So it’s important to weigh each used luxury sport utility vehicle model on its own merits, and not worry too much about why the previous owner might have bought it. It’s much more useful to think about how the previous owner treated it and make sure your preowned luxury sport utility vehicle is still a cut above other luxury cars and other SUVs.
