Edmunds Best SUV’s of 2019

Best Used SUVs
Americans love SUVs so much that the category has displaced sedans as the average family's daily transportation. With an elevated height, extra passenger space and useful cargo capacity, it's easy to understand why.

Used Mazda CX-5

2016 Mazda CX-5 interior

There are many good small SUVs, but the Mazda CX-5 stands out for sharp steering and handling that make it feel more like a sport sedan than an SUV. Yet the CX-5 still has the tall seating position and large cargo hold of an SUV, along with impressive fuel economy and top safety ratings. You'll want one with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, though; the base 2.0-liter is too underpowered.

Average 2016 Mazda CX-5 transaction price: $19,133
Savings vs. new: 36%
Edmunds rating: 8.1/10
Average consumer rating (2016): 4.3/5
Used Mazda CX-5 years for this generation: 2013 | 2014 | 2015 | 2016

Used Ford Edge

For drivers who need an SUV with more room than compact models, the Ford Edge fits the bill. With midsize dimensions, it's not dramatically larger than smaller alternatives, yet it offers appreciably more passenger and cargo space while still feeling tidy and maneuverable on the road. Most drivers will be satisfied with the standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but there are two other options, including a twin-turbo V6 with over 300 horsepower for those seeking more punch. Any used Edge represents a solid value, but 2016 and later models benefitted from the introduction of Ford's excellent Sync 3 touchscreen infotainment system and standard keyless entry and ignition.

Average 2016 Ford Edge transaction price: $22,200
Savings vs. new: 44% 
Edmunds rating: 7.9/10
Average consumer rating (2016): 3.9/5

Used Kia Sorento

2016 Kia Sorento interior

Need room for six or seven passengers in a reasonably sized wrapper? Fully redesigned for 2016, the Sorento could give you the best of both worlds. This midsize SUV offers a lot of versatility, not to mention an abundance of standard niceties, at an attractive average transaction price of less than $20,000 for the 2016 model year. Like the Ford Edge, the Sorento boasts an attractive interior and multiple engine choices, also featuring a long warranty and top safety ratings. One caveat: Although the Sorento's optional third row is useful, it's pretty tight. Kids will be fine, but you won't want to keep adult friends back there for any longer than necessary.

Average 2016 Kia Sorento transaction price: $19,298
Savings vs. new: 40%
Edmunds rating: 7.5/10
Average consumer rating (2016): 4.7/5
