The 25 Only Used Crossovers Under $15,000 Worth Buying

Crossovers are basically Sport Utility Vehicles that have been shrunken. According to Autotrader, “Crossovers generally mix the practicality of a hatchback, with SUV styling, meaning increased ride height, better visibility and ease of access, with relatively lightweight, relatively small and economical engines, and a price not much higher than a hatchback.” There are many examples of Crossover SUVs in the market. Some will set you back over $50,000 (such as the 2018 Audi SQ5 3.0T Premium Plus and the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Autobiography) while others will cost as low as under $15,000.

An example of a crossover that you can own with under $15,000 is the 2010 Honda CR-V. This car has received glowing reviews from US News Cars, stating, “The 2010 Honda CR-V ranks among the best in the compact SUV class because of its comfortable ride, roomy interior, and excellent safety and reliability ratings.” Other examples are the 2013 Chevrolet Equinox, which produces 321 horsepower and manages 22 miles per gallon in the city and 32 miles per gallon on the highway, and the 2010 Kia Sportage, which produces 173 horsepower and manages 20 miles per gallon in the city and 25 miles per gallon on the highway.
