But make no mistake: A new car's value plummets in the early days and years of ownership. If that sounds like your style, you're in the right place. We've compiled a list of today's best used cars, broken down into specific categories. It's important to note that we focused on models sold new in the model year since these vehicles are likely to be coming off lease today and entering the used-car marketplace.
How did we pick them? To make the cut, each of our used cars needed both a strong rating from our test team experts and a solid consumer rating based on our plentiful consumer reviews. We also combed through Edmunds' robust nationwide transaction data to determine how much you can expect to save by buying used compared to a new model of the same vehicle. Because let's be real — when it comes to used-car shopping, price is paramount. But saving less up front generally means a better resale value down the road, so that's another factor to consider. Utility vehicles have become so popular that it's easy for regular used cars to get lost in the shuffle.
That's a shame, because cars have so much to offer, whether you're looking at tried-and-true family sedans or versatile hatchbacks and wagons. You can even opt for a hybrid, plug-in-hybrid or fully electric used car, and there are plenty of used luxury cars that might now be in your price range. It's a great time to be a used-car shopper, so let's get started. Forget what you've heard. Sedans aren't dead; they're not even dying.
They're just no longer the shiny new objects thanks to today's countless SUV variants. But really, a lot of drivers don't like to sit so high. And a lot of them still like trunks. The Maxima's dramatic design and punchy six-cylinder engine make it a strong choice among used sedans.
Its high-quality interior also rivals those of luxury sedans. A new Maxima is priced like similar full-size sedans from Toyota and Buick, which may give some buyers pause. The Mazda 3 has long been a staff favorite thanks to its dynamic handling and sophisticated style. But it's not just us. Consumers love it, too, and it also might just be the best used car you can buy. That's a bold claim, but it's backed up by the numbers. What's not to like? Looking for a family sedan with loads of room, a large trunk, comfortable seats and an interior ideal for long-haul driving?
Look no further than the Toyota Avalon. A quiet cabin and optional luxury touches such as rear-seat climate control make the Avalon perfect for road trips. Although the ride sometimes isn't as smooth as we'd like, this big Toyota comes with a muscular V6 engine that really hauls the mail while returning good fuel economy. It's also quite rare to find a well-regarded Toyota model that depreciates this quickly, so the Avalon should be especially appealing to used-car shoppers.
Once you've owned a hatchback, you might never want anything else. The perfect hybrid of sedan handling and wagon practicality, the hatchback is the Swiss Army knife of the automotive world. Scion may be no more, but its mission to bring fun, youthful and affordable cars to new buyers lives on in the used iM hatchback. The iM was reasonably priced when it was new, and now it's a solid used-car value, loaded with features and backed by Toyota's reputation for reliability. It's not particularly fast or roomy, but it's comfortable and well-suited to tight city spaces. Note that the model's name changed to Toyota Corolla iM from , and the iM was discontinued altogether after The Golf's athletic handling, high-quality interior and zesty turbo engine make it a favorite among both our expert staffers and our consumer reviewers.
Some examples even came with a proper manual transmission. You can reach back a number of years for a used Golf at a great price, but we suggest sticking with a or later model. The Golf was completely redesigned for the model year, but in Volkswagen upgraded the touchscreen infotainment offerings and added USB connectivity. It might look small from the outside, but the Hyundai Elantra GT offers substantial cargo capacity. With 51 cubic feet of maximum space, it's nearly as commodious as some small SUVs. The GT's hp engine is also one of the strongest in its class, although it takes a toll on fuel economy.
Americans love SUVs so much that the category has displaced sedans as the average family's daily transportation. With an elevated height, extra passenger space and useful cargo capacity, it's easy to understand why. Yet the CX-5 still has the tall seating position and large cargo hold of an SUV, along with impressive fuel economy and top safety ratings.
You'll want one with the 2. With midsize dimensions, it's not dramatically larger than smaller alternatives, yet it offers appreciably more passenger and cargo space while still feeling tidy and maneuverable on the road. Most drivers will be satisfied with the standard 2. Any used Edge represents a solid value, but and later models benefitted from the introduction of Ford's excellent Sync 3 touchscreen infotainment system and standard keyless entry and ignition.
Need room for six or seven passengers in a reasonably sized wrapper? Fully redesigned for , the Sorento could give you the best of both worlds. Like the Ford Edge, the Sorento boasts an attractive interior and multiple engine choices, also featuring a long warranty and top safety ratings. One caveat: Although the Sorento's optional third row is useful, it's pretty tight.
Kids will be fine, but you won't want to keep adult friends back there for any longer than necessary. Americans love trucks almost as much as SUVs. The top-selling car in the country is actually a pickup, and why not? Pickups can tow and haul but also be civilized and comfortable. Not everyone needs one, but attractive prices on used models mean almost anyone can afford one. The Colorado kicked off today's midsize pickup revival with its debut in , offering full-size truck capabilities — hauling, towing, all-terrain — in a more maneuverable package. A comfortable ride, a choice of three engines including a fuel-thrifty and torque-rich diesel ideal for towing , and advanced infotainment features make the Colorado an easy truck to drive every day.
Colorados hold their value, though, so you'll have to hunt for a deal. On the bright side, there'll be more retained value when you're ready to sell. Savvy truck shoppers will know that corporate siblings GMC and Chevrolet offer similar trucks in different packages, and that's true for the Canyon and Colorado twins. So what's different about the Canyon?
Exterior styling, for one, highlighted by a bold upright grille, muscular fender flares and more chrome accents than the Colorado. The Canyon's interior is also a step up from the Colorado, with luxury-like touches such as leather upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The best-selling car in America isn't a car at all, but a pickup truck. The Ford F lineup offers four engines, three cab styles and three bed lengths, making it diverse enough to suit almost any need, from workhorse hauling to weekend towing.
It also happens to be an excellent value on the used market. When your priority is maximum fuel savings, nothing beats a hybrid. The best ones get mpg combined, while plug-in models feature bigger battery packs that allow you to cover miles on electric power alone. The hybrid that became a household name is also one of the top used-car picks. Funky styling and odd interior quirks aside, that's a solid deal given the Prius' roomy hatchback utility and exceptional fuel economy.
Stick with the redesigned and later models since these are quieter and add a previously absent sprinkling of sporty acceleration and handling. Hyundai has forged its revamped reputation on delivering value without sacrificing quality, and the Sonata sedan is a key pillar in that effort. Like its conventional counterpart, the Sonata Hybrid blends a refined and roomy interior, ample standard features and a smooth ride. It also boasts fuel economy of up to 42 mpg.
We liked the original Chevrolet Volt when it debuted in , but the current second-generation model, which arrived in , is even better. A new body structure improves handling and ride quality, while a quieter engine returns better fuel economy. The cherry on top is the upgraded plug-in battery pack, which delivers up to 53 miles of electric range. That's enough for most daily commuting needs without ever dipping into the gas tank, setting the Volt apart from its more limited plug-in peers.
The Volt's hatchback-style liftgate also makes it easy to load and remove cargo. Remarkably, this all-around excellent vehicle can now be had for just half of what it cost new. The family van design that took shape in the s remains with us today. Despite strong challenges from three-row SUVs and crossovers, the minivan is still here and still relevant. After all, it's hard to beat sliding side doors, three-row seating, and a low step into the cabin. We've used words such as "vast" and "cavernous" to describe the space inside the Honda Odyssey, and it's not hyperbole.
An eight-passenger crossover might be the solution to minivan-averse families, but there's no denying the practical benefits of the Odyssey's three rows, easy access and immense interior volume. Even behind the third-row seat, luggage space is more than twice what you'd find in a large sedan's trunk. The Odyssey's sliding second-row seats also come in handy, although you'll need some capable arms if you want to remove them completely.
Toyota's attempt to distinguish its Sienna from Honda's Odyssey has led to cringe-worthy marketing descriptions such as "Swagger Wagon. While the Sienna doesn't feel quite as refined or full-featured as the Odyssey, it comes with a robust V6 engine and even a bit of handling verve, particularly in SE trim.
The Sienna is also the only minivan available with all-wheel drive, making it a top choice for all-weather drivers. The next step beyond a hybrid is a pure electric vehicle, and some good EVs have already migrated to the used-car market. EVs are quiet, handle surprisingly well thanks to low-mounted battery packs , and can be ideal for drivers who typically cover only short distances. Be aware that as batteries age, they tend to hold less charge and therefore power fewer miles between plug-ins.
The e-Golf starts with the goodness of the regular Golf hatchback and subs in an electric motor and a battery pack. You'll find the same high-quality interior, smooth ride and spirited handling in a package that delivers between 80 and miles on a single charge. Plus, the e-Golf doesn't compromise cargo space for its battery pack, as do many EVs based on traditional gas-powered designs. Buying a used e-Golf saves half of what you'd pay new, but you may have to hunt to find one. Production numbers were low and exclusive to a dozen or so states.
