Ford Escape

It’s a good alternative to the Honda CR-V at a fraction of the cost on the used-car market. Use the money you save to upgrade to an Escape with a fancy “Titanium” trim package that includes power leather seats for both driver and passenger.

Kia Sedona

Families in the market for a used vehicle should check out the Sedona. The Korean minivan costs thousands less used than its Japanese rivals, the Honda Odyssey or the Toyota Sienna. A 2015 redesign of the Sedona has been well-received.

Cadillac CTS

Looking to get behind the wheel of a luxury vehicle for less? Consider a used Cadillac. Die-hard driving enthusiasts swear by the BMW 3 Series, but the CTS has surprisingly sharp handling and quick acceleration. It looks luxurious, too.
