Overall reliability is the main priority for many drivers, especially when buying a used vehicle. American drivers are especially in love with SUVs, and vehicles in this class are only getting better. Some of the best SUV advancements came from the 2010s. If you’re looking to buy a used SUV, now might be the best time since prices are expected to drop. Here are some of the most reliable SUVs from the 2010s according to J.D. Power and U.S. News & World Report.
2010 Honda CR-V
Average price range: $7,682- $10,069
The 2010 CR-V is one of the best crossover SUVs ever because of its stellar reliability ratings, safety features, and general comfort. In fact, the CR-V is one of the best Hondas you can buy when it comes to durability and low-maintenance costs. It has also been rated as one of the best crossovers because of its value.
Primarily, the CR-V offers comfort and agility. Some say this model’s four-cylinder engine and 180-horsepower are too slow, but that contributes to its overall comfort level. There isn’t an additional engine option for this version, but you can further customize it with an all-wheel drive.
2010 Chevrolet Tahoe
Average price range: $12,150- $17,344
If you’re looking for a great, used three-row SUV, the 2010 Chevy Tahoe might be the best option for you. This large SUV seats up to nine people and offers a ton of cargo space too. Although, you have to fold down the third row to really maximize the cargo space. One of the best things though about the 2010 Chevy Tahoe is its fuel economy. It gets a 17 mpg overall, which is pretty good for such a large SUV.
The more notable tech offerings in this model are the introduction of USB connectivity. Another benefit is General Motor’s Onstar vehicle assistance system. Optional tech add-ons include Bluetooth connectivity, backup camera, and parking sensors. If you want more luxury features, the 2010 GMC Yukon is worth looking into also.
2016 Hyundai Tucson
Average price ranging: $15,337- $20,534
The 2016 Tucson is special because it basically helped to further cement Hyundai as a safe and reliable brand. In 2016, the SUV was completely redesigned to offer better performance capabilities, cargo space, and enhanced tech features. Its attractive exterior has mass appeal, and its high reliability and safety ratings make this SUV a great option for families too. The 2016 Tuscon also has a robust, zippy engine that makes driving more fun.
Comfort is also a key element of the 2016 Tuscon. The car cabin is quiet and spacious, but the finishings are a little cheap. As far as in-car electronics go though, this SUV has most of the ideal perks we want nowadays. There is a nice 5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, and a rearview camera.
If you want more advanced driver assistance options, you can go up to the top trim level which is Tuscon Limited. These advanced options include forward collision warning, automatic energy, braking, and lane departure warning.
