Automobiles 2020 — Some Going Away, Others Very, Very Good

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, January 7, 2020

The 2019 model year has ended and the 2020 vehicles are now in showrooms around the country. Consumer Reports has issued a list of the best vehicles to buy for 2020 and Kelley Blue Book has issued a report on some lines of cars that are going away — permanently.

The auto buying guide listed 10 lines and says — if you’re looking for something new — bargains can be found. The blue book listed the base price but thinks you can do better.

Here are the vehicles and the base price:

  Ford Fiesta — $14,260 base price

  Chevy Cruze — $17,995 base price — also has $3,000 in incentives

  Buick Cascada — $33,070 base price — 0% financing, $400 cash back

  Volkswagon Golf Sportswagon — $21,895 base price

  Lincoln MKT — fell victim to the 2020 Lincoln Navigator — $49,500 base price

  Cadillac ATS Coupe — 2020 CT4 sedan is the new entry level vehicle — $38,995

  Chevrolet Volt — $33,250 base price — $4,000 rebate

  Ford Taurus — A 30-year run ends — $27,800 base price

  Cadillac CTS — $49,995 base price

  Volkswagon Beetle — $20,895 base price

In its report Consumer Reports notes it is best to buy an automobile after it has gone through an incarnation or two. The bugs have been worked out. The magazine’s senior tester Jake Fisher suggests a purchase somewhere around five to seven-years after the initial offering. And with a redesign — one where problems are being addressed — it’s best to wait three to five-years.

“It’s tempting to want to be the first on your block to have the newest car, but that comes with reliability risks,” Fisher said. “Being patient can save you from years of frustration.”

This is Consumer Reports’ suggestion for auto purchases if you’re looking for a new and reliable vehicle in 2020. These are the publication’s 10 best:

  Lexus GS

  Mazda CX-9

  Toyota 4-Runner

  Lexus NX

  Mazda CX-3

  Hyundai Kona

  Lexus GX

  Toyota Prius

  Toyota Prius Prime

  Mazda MX-5 Miata
