The Safest Used Cars in the 10K to 30K Price Range
Buying a used car can get you a great deal. But, deal or no deal, one of the most important things to consider when buying any vehicle is its safety. Consider a few of the safest used cars for different budgets.
Entry-Level (Under $10,000)
Entry-level drivers often include teenagers and other first-time drivers. Because these drivers have less experience on the road, safety is more important than ever before. The Audi A3 is a great choice for new drivers with its available rear parking sensors and side airbags. The Audi A3 has consistently received good ratings from IIHS and also offers a responsive and comfortable drive.
The Hyundai Elantra is another great choice for entry-level drivers. In addition to its exceptional fuel efficiency, it has also received high safety ratings. The Hyundai Elantra has come with a series of both available and standard safety features, so it is important to consider which features are important to you when buying used.
Mid-Level (Under $20,000)
Commuters who are looking for a great deal on a vehicle that will get them from point A to point B in a safe manner will enjoy these mid-level options. The Hyundai Tucson has received great safety ratings from the IIHS, mostly for its durable exterior design. Hyundai Tucson drivers can also enjoy ample cargo space and a comfortable interior that often comes loaded with assistive technology features.
The Honda Accord is another great option for mid-level drivers. Not only has the Honda Accord previously received great ratings from IIHS, but they earned the Top Safety Pick award for 2016 and 2017. Depending on the year you buy, you can enjoy advanced technologies, like the Honda Sensing, that contribute to its overall safety.
Premium (Under $30,000)
You might not often hear the words premium and used in the same sentence, but there are a few vehicle options that can provide you with a luxury vehicle, at an affordable price. The Toyota Camry is one of these choices. Brand new, the Camry is already affordable, so when you choose a used Camry with a higher budget, you can usually enjoy a fully-loaded sedan that is also safe. Toyota is known for its advanced safety with features like a backup camera, electronic brake distribution, auto high-beam headlights, and rear cross-traffic alert.
Another premium used car option is the Honda Fit. This subcompact car offers you an efficient and safe drive. Safety features like LaneWatch, brake assist, antilock braking system, and vehicle stability assist will keep you and your passengers safe. The unique exterior design of the Honda Fit also gives you ample cargo space, which is great for drivers who enjoy spending a lot of time on the road. You can easily fit in your golf clubs, weekend luggage, or a few of your favorite passengers. The Honda Fit is also comfortable and stylish, making it a top choice.
