Are you looking to buy a new-ish used car? Here’s a cheat sheet from CarGurus. The website just announced the 2020 winners for its fourth annual Best Used Car Awards. Honors were given for 10 different body-style segment, based on projected value retention, driver satisfaction, expert reviews and model popularity and availability. The 10 winners are below.

One note of caution: keep in mind that affordability did not factor into that equation. There’s no question a third-generation Toyota Tacoma will be one of the most reliable, value-holding vehicles you can buy…but that doesn’t mean you’re going to score a great deal on a used one.
