Autotrader Names Must-Have Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles for 2019

ATLANTA, February 5, 2019 – In today’s automotive market, car shoppers often find themselves deciding between the high price of a new car and the risk of unexpected repairs for a used car without a manufacturer-backed warranty. Fortunately, certified pre-owned (CPO) programs have entered the equation to give consumers an option that provides many of the benefits of a new car at a more affordable price.

In fact, certified pre-owned vehicles have become so popular they hit a record 2.7 million in sales in 2018, according to Cox Automotive economists[1]. To help car shoppers find the top choices in this fast-growing area, Autotrader’s expert editors named the 10 Best CPO Cars for 2019 and the 10 Best CPO Luxury Cars for 2019.

“As more features are added to today’s vehicles, new-car prices continue to rise, with even ‘affordable’ models costing as much as $35,000 or $40,000,” said Brian Moody, executive editor of Autotrader. “Our list of ‘good as new’ vehicles can bring the car a consumer wants into the price range they want to pay. These CPO vehicles are thoroughly inspected, covered by warranties and offer the latest designs, making it difficult to even tell the difference between their new car counterparts.”
