During a time when it can be hard for consumers to easily narrow down what certified pre-owned vehicle programs to shop, Autotrader has come out with a list of top programs for shoppers to consider this year.
Autotrader announced that it has come out with its list of the top luxury and non-luxury CPO programs for 2018 on Tuesday.
The company explained that some CPO programs are consistently more attractive than their competitors. After taking a look at several factors like transferability to future vehicle owners, powertrain warranty length, plus available inventory and bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage — Autotrader has named Hyundai and Lexus the top non-luxury and luxury CPO programs of the year.
“Beyond being budget-friendly, buying a certified vehicle provides an extra level of comfort, knowing your car has been through a rigorous inspection and is backed by the manufacturer for an extended length of time. Autotrader executive editor Brian Moody said in a news release, “Sometimes, that warranty is longer than you get with a new car and is certainly better than with a non-certified used car.”
“If you’re shopping for a mainstream vehicle, look at Hyundai, it has one of the best warranties in the entire automotive industry, while Lexus is the top pick on the luxury side with perks like an unlimited mileage warranty and pricing that is perfect for real luxury on a budget,” Moody continued.
The following is a list of Autotrader’s 10 best non-luxury and luxury CPO Programs for 2018:
- Non-luxury Overall Winner: Hyundai
- Luxury Overall Winner: Lexus
