SUVs are hot, hot, hot! It seems like everybody wants one, and carmakers have responded by offering more SUV choices than ever before. That's great, but there is still a problem: SUVs are also expensive. While there are big discounts on sedans and coupes these days, the discounts and special deals on SUV aren't nearly as generous.
So what is the answer? More and more consumers are turning to the "nearly new" market. In other words, they are buying one-, two-, or three-year-old vehicles, instead of brand-new ones. Oftentimes they are also choosing certified pre-owned versions because those vehicles feature benefits like full warranty coverage, roadside assistance, and lower financing rates. So selecting the 10 best certified pre-owned SUVs, we concentrated on 2018 model year vehicles — SUVs that are new enough to have lots of useful life in front of them but old enough to have experienced some depreciation. Those combined factors create super values that should get and keep your attention.
