What are the Top 5 Best Cars for 2020?


As we are well underway into the new decade, we have come to realize that new car prices are seeing numbers like $35,000. Given that number, now is probably the best time for the conscious buyer to be exploring used cars. We have taken the liberty to evaluate the best used cars that can be purchased for under $20,000. Now there may be a lot of cars to choose from, but we decided to concentrate our list based off Kelley Blue Book’s (KBB) list of traditional midsize models. These vehicles have the best balance of value and utility. We then cross referenced this list with the vehicles that we have available in our inventory today.

2016 Kia Optima

According to KBB, the next vehicle was ranked as the “best buy for 2016” – the Kia Optima. The Optima dominated the midsize category, mainly based on a redesign that refreshed its interior. On top of that, the Optima was complimented with an extensive list of ‘standard features’ that other car manufacturers would charge you a premium for. If you’re looking for a little power out of your Kia, we recommend going with the ‘SX’ trim, which outputs 245 horsepower with a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. If speed is not your cup of tea, then we suggest the 1.6-liter turbo ‘EX’ trim.
