Used Luxury Car Deals

As crossover SUVs gain in popularity, used sedans have become something of a bargain. Shoppers can find some particularly compelling deals on luxury sedans, a number of which have dropped significantly in resale value.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with sedans. The most popular automotive body type of all time, the humble sedan has for years served the American buying public with a sort of quiet reserve and dignity. Residing in the space between the utilitarian station wagon and the flashy, indulgent coupe, the sedan has, for decades, outsold all other passenger-vehicle types.

Like many auto journalists, the editors of Consumer Guide Automotive attend manufacturer-hosted press events to get our first look at the newest vehicles hitting the market—that’s how we produce most of our First Spin test-drive reviews. However, we also attend “smorgasbord-style” press events that allow us brief access to a broad variety of new vehicles from a host of manufacturers, for quick-take impressions and helpful back-to-back comparison drives.

2020 Kia Sportage

Chicago Auto Show Although the 2020 Kia Sportage shown at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show doesn’t look that much different, it boasts several subtle changes. Both the front and rear fascias have been revised, LED headlights and fog lights will be available, new wheel designs are used, Steel Grey has been added to the color palette, leatherette upholstery will be offered, and a new S trim level has been added to the existing LX, EX, and SX choices. There’s also a newly standard 8-inch touchscreen hosting Apple CarPlay/Android Auto functionality. But at least as notable are the changes that appear on the list of safety equipment.

LA-Auto-Show-LogoKia unveiled the all-new third generation of its spunky, boxy subcompact hatchback at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. The redesigned 2020 Kia Soul maintains the signature “tall box” profile of its predecessors, but its styling cues—particularly its aggressive front and rear fasciae—are a bit less “cute” than before.
