Best Used Car
Nowadays car enthusiasts everywhere search for a bigger better deal on their cars, therefore the car industry and car market, especially used car market is more thriving than ever. After a little market research I’ve came across some interesting results. The leaders of five categories of cars which are the most popular are the following:
For the ones on the market for a compact sedan, searching for efficiency and safety, the leader renders itself perfectly into all requirements: we’re talking about the 2003-2008 Hyundai Elantra series. Despite a slow start in the ’90s caused to a bad reputation of unstability and unreliability, the Hyundai Elantra has improved dramatically since then. Due to a complete redesign in 2001 the Elantra of today is currently a class leader, with an improved reliability, stability and a long list of standard features like: air-conditioning, full power accessories, side airbags, 15-inch wheels and an AM/FM cassette player. A very decent engine for a small sedan: a 2 liter engine that generates 135 hp more than enough to power up the compact and launch it on a smooth ride.
The undisputed leader of the midsize sedan section is the: 2003-2008 Toyota Camry. High quality body and legendary reliability are “genetic” markers of the Toyota. The Camry offers a compliant and smooth ride that is perfect for a family car. A powerful 3.6 liter V6 engine powers up the Toyota, even more than it has to in my opinion. Along side with a six speed manual or automatic transmission depending on the choice of the customer and a front wheel drive makes the Camry not only safe and smooth but fast and powerful as well, up to the task of driving 200.000 miles without major improvements. A definite and absolute class leader.
Once again we cross paths with the Korean manufacturer Hyundai. The large sedan section is currently owned by the 2006-2008 Hyundai Azera. One great advantage of this great car is the fact that it’s inexpensive, but don’t take anything away from it. When driven it certainly doesn’t feel or look cheap. A sleek looking grille and really cool looking body lines, resembles more an Acura than a Hyundai. The inside looks just as good “enriched” with faux wood and metallic piping. The cockpit is bursting with technology such as rain-sensing wipers and a power-tilt/telescoping steering wheel. A big 3-8 liter V6 engine develops 263 hp combined with the five speed automatic transmission, launches the Azera at an acceleration of 7.1 sec for the 0-60mph run which is really good for a large sized sedan.
Finally the Coupe class leader is the 2003-2008 BMW 3. This one doesn’t even need an introduction. Luxury, sporty-looks, power, safety and speed are the tenets of the BMW manufacturer. A twin turbocharged 3.0 liter V6 engine develops a massive 320 hp combined with a 7 speed dual clutch automated manual (DCT) transmission develops unparalleled performance on the road. The inside it’s as “turbocharged” as the outside, a little less luxury traded for a lot of roadster-looks the BMW 3 looks more appropriate in a NASCAR than in your backyard. Equipped to the teeth with the most high-tech German components, this car will nearly drive itself.
There you have it, the leaders of all sedan and coupe classes. Which one suits you best?
