Top 10 Best Used Car Bargains: 2019

Top 10 Best Used Car Bargains: 2019

Some people will never buy a brand new car, swearing that they can always find a better deal looking for a lightly used one.

Some vehicles have more value on the used market than others, though. While certain cars, trucks, and crossovers hold their value well and won’t be much less expensive on the used market, others absolutely tank in value the minute they are driven off the lot — depreciation makes for some great used car bargains.

Car buying research firm iSeeCars.com recently analyzed over 7 million new and used cars sold from August 2018 to January 2019 and compared the prices of the new cars to their lightly used equivalents. They then identified those vehicles with the highest price differences between new and used.

It’s not clear if iSeeCars’ study compared identical vehicle types with identical equipment, so this study may not be perfect, but it does provide a rough reflection of which cars are great value as lightly used vehicles. Some cars will dip in value more steeply if an all-new version is introduced shortly after as well, which is another factor to consider when viewing this data.

Check out the list of best used car bargains below.
