According to CarGurus

16 of the Best Used Cars to Buy in 2019


May 8, 2019 Cars By

It’s that time again: the automotive wise men and women over at CarGurus have announced their annual list of the Best Used Cars. To even be considered, CarGurus evaluates each car based on user reviews, professional reviews, popularity, availability, and projected depreciation over 12 years. And as the number of segments in the car market grows, so does the number of categories in the CarGurus list; this year, there’s a total of 16 winners.

It’s a handy helper for anyone looking for advice on which used vehicle is most likely to treat them well. After all, buying any car is daunting under any circumstances—doubly so for used cars, where vehicle history and maintenance become factors and reliability becomes a bigger concern.

CarGurus’s list restricts itself to fairly recent used vehicles, so there’s no worry of finding vehicles saddled with highly outdated safety features or technology. So if you’re looking for a quality, pre-owned ride to park in your garage…any of the following cars would be a good place to start.
