Crossover SUVs

Subcompact Crossover: The smallest option in the used SUV lineup, these models are known for being small and efficient while still offering larger cargo areas than a sedan can typically manage. They also employ responsive, intuitive engine options that can be turbocharged and offer all you need around Dallas or Plano. Some stellar examples of these can include options like the Chevy Trax and Jeep Renegade. We happily recommend these models if you're not looking for a larger SUV option, these subcompact models are great.

Compact Crossover:Upgrading to the compact crossover lineup adds more capability to your lineup. While the seating doesn't typically upgrade from a subcompact model in terms of passengers, you'll find more interior space as well as room for more cargo. That means you can bring more along for the ride. Examples of this type of used SUV includes Chevy Equinox, Ford Escape, Jeep Compass, Kia Soul, and Nissan Rogue.
