Car shoppers from all around the greater Huntsville area have been asking us which are the best certified pre-owned (CPO) cars for their drives through Florence and Cullman, AL. That's tough to narrow down, because there are so many great options out there! However, we were able to pick three luxury SUVs out of the lineup that we think make a great match for local drivers like you.

Check out some of our picks for the best CPO SUVs, then contact Century Automotive to take your favorite for a test drive!


The BMW X3 is a top pick among families that need a stylish SUV that's comfortable whether it's commuting to the office, carpooling to the kids' football practice, or heading out on a weekend hunting trip.

  • Horsepower potential: 248 or 382 horsepower
  • Towing capacity: Up to 4,400 pounds (when properly equipped)
  • Seating capacity: 5 passengers (including the driver)
  • Maximum cargo volume: 62.7 cubic feet

Versatile, agile, and capable, the BMW X3 models in our certified pre-owned inventory often come with either a 2.0L turbocharged I-4 engine or a 3.0L turbocharged I-6. The 2.0L engine produces 248 horsepower while the 3.0L engine generates 382 horsepower. You may also discover some models with rear-wheel drive while others have the xDrive all-wheel drive system.

As an SUV, you can expect the BMW X3 to have enough room inside for everything you need. It accommodates five passengers in total among its two rows of seats. You'll also have 28.7 cubic feet of cargo volume to work with in the trunk. Or, you can fold down the second-row seats to access the full cargo volume of 62.7 cubic feet.  

Porsche Cayenne

Next up on our list of the best CPO cars is the too-hot-to-handle (so to speak) Porsche Cayenne. With hybrid, gas, and diesel powertrain options, you'll be rolling through town with sophistication and speed.

  • Horsepower potential: 541 horsepower
  • Drivetrain: All-wheel drive
  • Seating capacity: 5 passengers (including the driver)
  • Maximum cargo volume: 60.3 cubic feet

The energetic available engines under the hood of this SUV can produce up to 541 horsepower for gas-powered powertrains and up to a net 455 horsepower for hybrid powertrains. We've had a wide variety of engines with the Porsche Cayenne models on our certified pre-owned lot, so keep your eyes open when you're browsing our inventory online or in person.

The cabin gives you plenty of space, too. It's a 2-row SUV, so there's room for up to five passengers. The trunk can hold up to 27.1 cubic feet of cargo, while folding down the rear seats gives you a total cargo volume of 60.3 cubic feet.

Range Rover Velar

The Range Rover Velar gets the final entry on our list of best certified pre-owned SUVs. This good-looking SUV carries itself with that classic Range Rover body style, with a Sport Command Driving Position that places the driver up higher to get a good look at the road ahead.

  • Horsepower potential: 247 or 340 horsepower
  • Drivetrain: All-wheel drive
  • Seating capacity: 5 passengers (including the driver)
  • Maximum cargo volume: 60.2 cubic feet

It features useful terrain tackling tools, too, like standard all-wheel drive that provides all-weather and off-road capability. It also has Terrain Response® systems that use selectable drive modes to optimize performance based on your current conditions. You'll find two engine options for this vehicle: a 247 horsepower 2.0L I-4 engine or a 340 horsepower 3.0L V6.

With a maximum cargo volume of 70.1 cubic feet, you'll have enough room for everything you want to bring along. This SUV also seats five passengers with 20 cubic feet of cargo space.

Why Buy a Certified Pre-Owned Car?

If you're looking to take the wheel of a luxury SUV, then a certified pre-owned car may just be the ticket. These are newer-model-year used cars that have a limited number of miles in their rearview mirrors.

With the thorough inspection and detailing they go through, they may even look, drive, and smell like they're fresh from the factory.

All CPO cars undergo a rigorous multi-point inspection as required by the manufacturer. They also come with a limited factory warranty and a complimentary vehicle history report for your convenience.
