ATLANTA — Shoppers interested in a new car might be disappointed to discover that many new models are beyond their budget, especially as you add options and extras for comfort, safety and convenience. A used car seems like the next best option; however, consumers could be turned off by potentially high maintenance and repair costs associated with used vehicles.

To narrow down the list of used cars with many of the perks of a new model, Autotrader’s editors named the 10 Must-Shop Certified Pre-Owned Cars and 10 Must-Shop Certified Pre-Owned Luxury Cars for 2018 that they consider to be “good as new.”

Autotrader’s Top 10 CPO Cars for 2018

  • 2015–’17 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • 2015–’17 Ford Edge
  • 2015–’17 GMC Yukon
  • 2015–’17 Honda Fit
  • 2016–’17 Hyundai Tucson
  • 2016–’17 Kia Sorento
  • 2014–’17 Mazda6
  • 2014–’17 Nissan Rogue
  • 2014–’17 Subaru Forester
  • 2014–’17 Toyota Tundra

Autotrader’s Top 10 CPO Luxury Cars for 2018

  • 2014–’17 Acura MDX
  • 2015–’17 Audi A3
  • 2015–’17 Cadillac ATS
  • 2014–’17 Infiniti QX60
  • 2017 Jaguar F-Pace
  • 2015–’17 Kia K900
  • 2015–’17 Lexus RC
  • 2015–’17 Lincoln MKC
  • 2014–’17 Range Rover Sport
  • 2016–’17 Volvo XC90

Editors capped the budget for the 10 Must-Shop CPO Cars at $40,000, and $65,000 for the 10 Must-Shop CPO Luxury Cars, with many of the models listed available for a lot less. All included vehicles also offer the latest design, and a desirable, manufacturer-backed CPO warranty for up to 100,000 miles. The vehicles on the non-luxury list have an overall NHTSA safety rating of four stars or more (out of a possible five stars).

“This list of ‘good as new’ models offer the latest design, meaning your friends and neighbors will think you bought a brand-new model, even though you saved money on a certified pre-owned car,” said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. “Aside from being affordable, each car on the list includes a desirable, manufacturer-backed warranty, which means these selections come without many of the traditional costs (or fears) associated with a typical used car.”
