What makes a good luxury SUV? Is it the way it drives, the quality of its interior, and the features that it comes with? Is a traditional luxury badge a top priority, or stretch-out interior space?
The best luxury SUVs combine all or most of those attributes. But you can get a number of compelling luxurious SUVs under $30,000, as long as you’re willing to give up some of those qualities or opt for a used vehicle. We’ve rounded up a varied collection of standout choices — five brand-new vehicles that pack a lot of luxury into a relatively affordable price, and five pre-owned models from luxury brands that are especially strong values on the used market.
