What Are the Best Cars to Buy Used?

Did you know the value of a new car can depreciate as much as 10 to 20% within the first year? It’s no wonder why used cars are starting to dominate the streets of Milford, Manchester, and Middletown.

Choosing to buy a used car also opens the door to a wider variety of options. At Key Cars, we’re often asked what the best cars to buy used are. While it’s true every car, truck, and SUV on our lot is high quality, we’re excited to share a few of our favorites.

Read on to discover our top picks before scheduling a test drive today!

Hyundai Sonata

Hyundai Sonata

From its sleek sports coupe design to its world-bridging technology, the Hyundai Sonata perfectly blends class with a whole lot of fun. Super-efficient, it makes a great daily runner or weekend explorer.

Wet highways, city traffic, and steep mountain roads are traversed with equal confidence thanks to its smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. Most newer models also come standard with Drive Mode Select technology, allowing greater control over your drive.

Got a growing family on your hands? The Sonata’s wide stance means more room to stretch. Providing over 46 inches of legroom and 40 inches of headroom, passengers will have no issues slipping inside.

Thoroughly modern from the inside out, the Sonata fills its cabin with a long list of available features like:

  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Color touchscreen with HD Radio™
  • Bluetooth® hands-free technology
  • Ambient lighting

Hyundai Tuscon

Hyundai Tucson

For those who desire wide open spaces or at least enough space to fit your family’s gear, the Tucson has your back. Sophisticated enough for downtown and sturdy enough for the backroads, this SUV wears a lot of hats.

Pop open the Hands-Free smart power liftgate to access up over 80 cubic feet of available cargo. Available with HTRAC All Wheel Drive and up to 2,000 pounds of max towing capacity, the Tucson is perfect for skiers, boaters, or antique store hunters.

For the day-to-day drive, the Hyundai Tucson focuses on comfort and efficiency. Most model years offer Idle Stop & Go technology to help conserve fuel while you’re navigating the school zone. To keep everyone comfy and entertained, a massive touchscreen connects you to features ranging from Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ to a Bose® Premium Sound System and more!

Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Few trucks in the automotive world enjoy rock-solid loyalty as the Chevy Silverado 1500. A dependable workhorse, it’s nearly unmatched when it comes to tackling tasks while delivering luxury-grade comfort.

With a powerful row of engine options, drivers can customize their pickups to fit their lifestyles. Are you built for weekend speed? The lightweight 2.7L Turbo engine cranks out a whopping 310 horsepower on the fly. Need something that can pull a trailer full of ponies? The 6.2L V8 supplies a turf-clenching 460 lb-ft of torque.

Whether you choose the Regular, Crew, or Double Cab, you’ll enjoy having plenty of room for you, your friends, and your gear. For the tradesman, the available long bed delivers 89.1 cubic feet of space. Inside the cabin, Chevy offers more storage along with a full suite of tech options, including:
