3 Great Cars For Under $20,000


3 Great Cars For Under $20,000

The midsize sedan segment is one of the most hotly contested categories in the car industry. These “saloons” (that’s what they call a four-door sedan in other parts of the world) have to be practical, comfortable and economical to own. They also need to have plenty of room for you and all of your people/stuff. And it doesn’t hurt if that used car under $20,000 looks good too. So let’s take a look at three compelling used cars for less than $20,000 from Off Lease Only, and see what you get for the money.

2018 2019 Toyota Camry

The Toyota Camry has been the best-selling car in the United States since anyone can remember. Martha Washington had one, Teddy Roosevelt kept one at his ranch, and Abraham Lincoln even drove one in law school (just kidding). What makes these cars so popular is their refined durability. Everything feels very well put together, the materials feel durable, and the drivetrains provide an incredible amount of performance and economy, without ever feeling harsh or over stressed. And thanks to a complete redesign of the 2018 – 2019 Toyota Camry, one of the world’s most sensible cars has become, dare we say, nearly exciting?

When shopping for a used 2018 – 2019 Toyota Camry, here’s what you need to know: The 2018 – 2019 Toyota Camry comes in 5 trims; L (base model, comes with power everything, Apple CarPlay/Amazon Alexa, a WiFi hotspot and LED highlights), the 2018 – 2019 Toyota Camry LE is the most popular model and gets more standard equipment, along with nicer exterior trim. The 2018 – 2019 Toyota Camry SE is essentially the same, but with a sportier look, a sport suspension/steering rack, and faux leather. The 2018 – 2019 Toyota Camry XLE is the luxury model that gets nicer interior/exterior trim and more features like leather, a head up display and wireless phone charging. The 2018 – 2019 Toyota Camry XSE is the ‘cool’ model, which gets delightfully aggressive looks, and a sport-themed interior. The standard engine is a 2.5L 4cyl that makes 203 hp or 206 hp in the 2018 – 2019 Toyota Camry XSE. The optional powerplant is a 301 hp 3.5L V6.

2017 2018 Nissan Altima

Back in the 1990s, the Nissan Maxima was the charismatic competitor to midsize stalwarts like the Toyota Corolla and Honda Accord. The Nissan Altima on the other hand, was a small sporty sedan that seems to have put on a bit of weight over the last few decades. Now categorized as a midsize sedan, the 2017 – 2018 Nissan Altima is one of the best-selling cars in the ‘Camry category’. It charms with handsome styling and loads of equipment that would cost thousands more in a Camry or Accord. And of course, Off Lease Only has plenty of low mileage 2017 – 2018 Nissan Altima sedans starting at just $11,999.

One of the best things about a used 2017 – 2018 Nissan Altima are the front seats. They’re made from sculpted memory foam, which significantly reduces pressure points and make a long road trips surprisingly comfortable. The most common model is the 2017 – 2018 Nissan Altima SV, which comes with a number of desirable features like upgraded exterior trim and wheels, a power driver seat, remote engine start and dual zone climate control. The top-of-the-line 2017 – 2018 Nissan Altima SL gets leather upholstery, ambient interior lighting, a number of standard safety features like automatic emergency braking (which is also available on the Altima SV). The sporty 2017 – 2018 Nissan Altima SR gets racy exterior styling and wheels, a sport tuned suspension and unique interior trim with front sport seats. It can be had with the standard 2.5L 179 hp cyl (standard across the model range), or the mighty 270 hp 3.5L VQ V6. Naturally, Off Lease Only usually has these in stock as well.

2018 2019 Kia Optima

A lot of people may not realize this, but Kia is actually the sister company to Hyundai. As such, the two companies often share platforms, drivetrains and other technology. So a used 2018 – 2019 Kia Optima is mechanically similar to the 2018 – 2019 Hyundai Sonata. However the bodywork, interior, suspension tuning, and powertrain programming are completely different. These aren’t badge engineered cars, they are completely different from one another, with the Hyundai Sonata leaning more towards the luxury side of the midsize sedan segment. The Kia Optima on the other hand, is much more sporty in nature. Step up to the 2018 – 2019 Kia Optima SX and the sporty side becomes much more apparent. There’s a potent 245 hp 2.0L turbo-4 under the hood, a sport tuned suspension, unique exterior trim with racy 18 inch wheels, adaptive LED headlights, unique interior trim, paddle shifters for the six speed automatic, and the option of upgraded leather with the SX Limited package. The 2018 – 2019 Kia Optima LX & EX come very well-equipped on their own, and there are a number of active and passive safety features available on these models.

With eye-catching style, engaging driving dynamics and a host of amenities that would cost thousands more on any other car, the 2018 – 2019 Kia Optima is a strong contender for your midsize sedan dollars. In speaking of dollars, Off Lease Only has a huge selection of low mileage used 2018 – 2019 Kia Optima sedans starting at just $13,999.
