The GMC Terrain, Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV-4 are three of the top 10 best used SUVs available as of April 2015, according to the US News & World Report website. Other top used SUVs include the Buick Enclave, Toyota 4Runner, Toyota Sequoia, Chevrolet Tahoe and Lexus RX Hybrid.
The SUVs selected as the best used models are determined by a combination of review scores from multiple publications and statistics about their reliability over time. The Terrain, CR-V and RAV-4 are the top three compact SUVs on the market, while the Enclave and 4Runner are among the best mid-size SUVs available. Large SUVs are topped by the Sequoia and Tahoe, while the best hybrid SUV on the used market is the Lexus RX hybrid.
With the exception of the Lexus RX, these vehicles are not considered luxury SUVs, but US News & World Report maintains a separate ranking of the top used picks for these vehicles as well. The Audi Q5 and Cadillac SRX are considered the best used compact luxury SUVs, while the Porsche Cayenne and Mercedes-Benz M-class take top honors in the midsize category. The best large SUVs on the used market are the Cadillac Escalade and Lexus LX.
