Despite a 6.8 percent decline in sales compared to the same time in 2019, the Toyota RAV4 remained the best-selling SUV in the United States in the first nine months of 2020. Toyota RAV4 has earned the hearts of buyers in this country as a crossover with a small design, striking appearance, strong performance, and a wide variety of safety and convenience features. Toyota introduced the RAV4 TRD Off-Road in 2020. At the same time, the RAV4 Prime 2021 plug-in hybrid variant will be available starting this summer.

Honda CR-V The Honda CR-V model established a sales record in the United States in 2019 and continued to do so until March of this year. However, as the Covid 19 outbreak progressed, the automotive market became increasingly pessimistic.

Honda updated the CR-exterior V's appearance and launched a Hybrid model this year to provide customers more options. Like the Honda Accord Hybrid, the CR-V Hybrid utilizes an electric motor and a 2.0-liter Atkinson engine for a combined output of 212 horsepower, making it the most powerful variant in the CR-series. V. Chevrolet Equinox After the Silverado truck, this is Chevrolet's second best-selling vehicle. Chevrolet Equinox had a solid start to Q1 2020, but due to the epidemic’s impact, sales have progressively declined since Q2 and are currently 24.5 percent lower than in the first nine months of the year. Chevrolet introduced the Midnight Equinox model in 2020, and the launching of the new 2021 Equinox model has been canceled.

This is Nissan's first move toward producing self-driving cars. Ford Explorer Next up on our list is a unique SUV that sold well in 2020. Ford Explorer sales have grown by 18% in the first nine months of 2019. Despite the US economic crisis, the Explorer 2020 edition, with a new appearance and several upgrades, has prompted consumers to withdraw their money. The Ford Explorer 2020 comes standard with a rear-wheel-drive system upgraded to improve the vehicle's handling and operation. In addition to the standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine with 300 horsepower, Ford equips the Explorer 2020 with a Co-Pilot360 safety system that includes functions such as automated emergency braking, pedestrian recognition, and scene identification. Jeep Wrangler Jeep sold more than 150,000 Jeep Wrangler off-road vehicles in the first nine months of the year, a 15% decrease from the same period the previous year. The Jeep Wrangler is a contemporary version of the military Jeep that was popular during WWII. Compared to the military Jeep prototype, the Jeep Wrangler keeps the 7-slot grille, headlamps, and round phase, but with significant aerodynamic improvements. Jeep released a fuel-efficient Jeep Wrangler Ecodiesel variant in 2020 and a High Altitude version with several luxury amenities. Toyota Highlander Toyota Highlander sales increased in the first quarter of 2020 with the all-new 2020 model but subsequently fell owing to the Covid 19 pandemic. The current Toyota Highlander is the fourth generation, and it has a striking black grille design, high-class projector headlights, and a standard 3.5-liter V6 engine generating 295 horsepower. Furthermore, the Hybrid variant will employ a 2.5-liter engine and two electric motors with a combined capacity of 243 horsepower. While Highlander is suitable for the mountainous terrains, Toyota also has other SUVs for moving around in the city like the Toyota Avanza 2017 or Toyota Yaris 2019.

This Complete Guide Might Help you to Choose Best Used Luxury SUV Car for a Family
The Indian automobile market has evolved in the last decade. Better economic conditions, lower prices, Government relaxation, are some of the factors that have throttled the sales of luxury cars upwards. Indian consumers are now showing greater interest in luxury SUVs in the used luxury car segment because of more features, robust design, and ultra-comfort for the whole family. Let’s understand deeper the dynamics of the used luxury SUV demand in the Indian context. Why do people prefer to buy a luxury SUV over a sedan? An SUV, as the name suggests, is essentially a Sports Utility Vehicle. Indian households are now moving a lot towards luxury SUVs because of the high utility compared to a sedan. They are more spacious, have better ground clearance, and are more robust for Indian driving conditions. Reliability is another key factor why people are more attracted to luxury SUVs. Consumers today are ready to spend extra money for the sake of comfort and durability. Luxury car manufacturers have no doubt been very particular about the brand value of their products. Hence their vehicles are built to last. Another consumer type is more drawn towards luxury SUVs-the Generation Z. The younger generation now demands more for these vehicles mainly because of the off-roading capabilities and comfort. Loaded with features, these vehicles are just right for exploring off-beat locations over the weekend. Young thrill-seekers opt for advanced vehicles to satiate their thirst for adventure. How luxury SUV market gaining popularity Luxury SUVs started gaining popularity in the Indian market through innovative social media marketing by manufacturers. They managed to understand the sentiments of the consumers and hit the right chords of their potential customers. Another reason is the trend of compact SUVs in the market. You sold a whopping 28 million SUVs globally in 2019, which says everything about the popularity of these vehicles. Moreover, the Indian luxury car market was valued at $1 billion in 2020 itself, with SUVs accounting for almost half the sales. All this has been possible due to the advent of the internet and social media. People nowadays are well informed about the specifications, features of the luxury SUV of their choice and follow all the trends in the market. Is it safer to buy a used luxury SUV than a brand new one? Luxury SUVs are built to last. Their robust engines, heavy-duty chassis, and safety features are engineered to run for years without needing many services. The only difference that really matters between a used luxury SUV and a brand new one is cost. The other sizeable understandable factor is after-sales service and maintenance. While a used luxury SUV would have lost almost 30% of its value to depreciation in the initial years, the maintenance cost would sometimes go up in the long run. If you can manage to get a well-maintained SUV in the 2-4-year-old bracket, it is definitely a safer option. The reason is simple. Since a new luxury vehicle loses a significant chunk of its value due to depreciation, the cost of insurance also goes down. You don’t have to pay the import taxes and other premiums, which would be necessary while buying a brand new luxury SUV. Careful inspection and thorough background checks can help you find the deal of a lifetime. How used luxury SUVs are more beneficial than a new one There are a number of reasons why used luxury SUVs can be more valuable than a new one: - The cost of a used luxury SUV is very low as compared to a brand new car - Since the used SUVs are not older than 4 years, the after-sales service and software updates are easily available - The cost of insurance is low - If the vehicle has been well maintained, the cost of service goes down - Sometimes, few luxury SUVs come with an extended warranty that can be used even after the car being sold as pre-owned Top luxury SUV brands available to buy in the used luxury car market Used luxury SUVs from top brands are usually a class apart from ordinary premium SUVs.
