Best used-car deals

A late-model used car can be one of the best values you’ll find when buying a car. With relatively low mileage, modern safety and convenience features, and usually a much lower price than similar new vehicles, these used cars are in the sweet spot of auto deals.

We’ve scoured through the used car options and put together this list of best deals on 2010-2014 vehicles in a variety of categories. Each of the vehicles featured are models recommended by Consumer Reports. In making these selections, we focused on models that show the greatest depreciation from their original retail price, then culled the list to just those vehicles that meet our stringent criteria to be Recommended, including good performance in our tests, average or above safety scores, and average or better reliability. The final selections highlight desirable configurations. For most cars, there are similar savings on other variations, as could be seen in detail on the model pages. Due to the tough criteria for selection, diversity is limited for some car types.
