ATLANTA, June 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Despite the auto industry turmoil and high prices of 2021, the used car market still has excellent options. Whether shoppers are looking for a practical crossover, a rugged pickup truck, a fun performance car or anything in between, there’s a used car, truck or SUV out there for everyone – even if they have to look a little harder than usual in the current marketplace. To help consumers find that perfect match, the experts at Autotrader recently named the 10 Best Used Cars of 2021 that are great alternatives to buying a new car.

“Finding the right used car can be challenging – not only are some models in short supply, but the average age of a used car on the road today is about 12 years old,” said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. “A lot has changed in terms of performance, technology and safety in those 12 years. Savvy shoppers can use Autotrader’s Best Used Cars list as a way to start the research process.”

Autotrader recently put together a list of the best used cars of the year based on previous “Best New Car” winners, as well as vehicles from the list of Best Electric Cars for 2021. Autotrader editors narrowed them down based on value and popularity, while also factoring in brands with good certified pre-owned (CPO) programs. Below are Autotrader’s 10 Best Used Cars of 2021:
