Although you may have to spend more money to buy a premium sport-utility vehicle, you don’t have to let that cash go to waste. The best value luxury SUVs can provide lower ownership costs and higher retained values than the competition, help to maximize the returns on your investment. Also, even though these are high-value choices, they can still serve up high-end premium equipment. That includes climate-controlled seating, advanced safety features, and sophisticated infotainment technologies.
And since these are SUVs, today’s vehicles match their luxury with capability. Four-wheel drive and four-ton towing capacities are both in the mix here, as are cargo-friendly cabins. We even found an especially budget-friendly option that starts below $30,000 — complete with LED signature lighting, push-button start, and stitched cabin surfaces.
