6 Best Used Cars for Summer

 

Did you know that late spring and summer are the most popular seasons for used car sales? As the weather continues to heat up, dealerships are offering their customers great vehicles to choose from, with the best prices of the year. With summer now in full swing, you will find a large assortment of affordable pre-owned vehicles, including many low-mileage, late models.

 

The summer season influences car buying in both the new and used markets, and it’s a time when some of the best deals are available. With inventories moving even more during this time of the year, you as a buyer can often negotiate a bit more aggressively to get the best possible deal. Here are Eden Autos’ top six picks for used cars and SUVs to check out this summer.

2013 Honda Civic

Honda is a definite winner in the compact sedan line with the Civic. After seeing some flops for the first few years, Honda completely rethought its essential design and rolled out a sleeker version for the 2013 generation. The Civic is one of the best and most reliable options in the used market, thanks to the ideal blend of affordability and reliability. Drivers can enjoy great Bluetooth connectivity, hands free text messaging, and am interior that feels expensive for such a budget-friendly vehicle. A guided back up camera and a front collision warning system are modern safety features that help keep the Civic at the top when it comes to crash test safety ratings. Drivers looking for a fast sporty ride may not like the Civic, but those looking to save money on gas will love it. The 2013 Civic gets 29 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway.

 

2015 Hyundai Elantra

This car combines the practicality of cargo space and fuel efficiency with speed and power. Passengers will love the rear heated seats, a luxury usually reserved for front seating, and the driving experience is very customizable with a custom steering mode and front seating to accommodate practically any height and seat angle. You can also drive with peace of mind, as this model received the highest crash test ratings possible in its year. The Elantra is a particularly quiet ride, although the sound system could have been improved to make the experience even more enjoyable. The 2015 Elantra gets 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.


2013 Honda CR-V

There’s a reason why Honda’s CR-V is such a popular line of compact SUVs. The 2013 CR-V is probably the least costly, latest generation you can buy used this summer. The 2013 model gives you Real Time All Wheel Drive and Honda’s signature Motion-Adaptive electric power steering system for a vehicle that can handle rugged terrain and snow. Many of the controls on the five inch LCD screen are also accessible via the steering wheel, and the CR-V is a surprisingly quiet ride. In terms of interior bells and whistles, the 2013 model is equipped with the basics, but a range of high tech features are available options. The 2013 CR-V gets good mileage for an SUV, with 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

 

2015 Acura RDX
This highly rated SUV combines compact ease with a sporty ride that’s super fun to drive. With the first generation dating back to 2007, the RDX soared in popularity in a very competitive market, especially with the generation that was released in 2010. This model is also more fuel efficient than previous generations, getting 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. The surround sound system is great for music, and passengers in the back can enjoy watching a DVD during extended trips. The RDX is also more spacious than it appears. The center console is a significant storage upgrade compared to similar vehicles, and the back seat doesn’t skimp on the extra leg room.

2015 Buick Enclave

If it’s an SUV with lots of room that best matches your needs, the 2015 Buick Enclave may the perfect choice. In addition to a high safety rating, the Enclave comes with lots of standard features, including a 6.5-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, smartphone integration and satellite radio. Available family-friendly options include a rear-seat entertainment system with a DVD player, wireless headphones, and a large overhead display. City mileage is estimated at 17 mpg and 24 mpg on the highway.

2014 Toyota Sienna

If you’re looking for a roomy minivan with a clean design and great mileage, the 2014 Toyota Sienna is the perfect vehicle. This model may not satisfy those looking for the speed or sporty handling available in more luxury vans, but the 3.5-liter V6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission offer fuel efficiency and the perfect amount of zoom for highway drivers. In addition, the Sienna has great safety ratings across the board. Enjoy Bluetooth connectivity as well as AUX ports for the entertainment system and three rows of comfy seating for eight. The 2014 Sienna gets 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
