What is the best year for a used Lexus SUV?

I’m in the market for a used car and I’d like to buy a Lexus if possible. However, I’m worried about buying an unreliable model. What is the best model year for a used Lexus SUV?

Lexus is already an exceptionally reliable car brand, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look for the best of the best! The best used Lexus models to buy tend to be from 2016. Here’s why.
The mid-2010s were a competitive time in the SUV market, so it makes sense that the best year for a used Lexus SUV would be right when every manufacturer is trying to outdo one another.
The best Lexus SUVs from the 2016 model year include the Lexus NX and the Lexus RX 350. You can typically find these with a fair used price ranging from $17,300 to $32,400, depending on the model and configuration.
Don’t forget to take the ongoing cost of car insurance into consideration when you’re making your choice! Even used cars need car insurance, and since these Lexus SUVs have maintained their value so well you may want to consider investing in some additional coverage like full-coverage insurance.
