5 of the Best Cars Under $40,000 for 2020
With many vehicles existing at all price levels, there seems to be a vehicle for everyone. Nevertheless, it also seems like the prices of cars continue to climb closer to the $35,000 mark. So if you have an extra buck or two, you will be able to choose from a wider selection of cars.
With the extra money that you spend, you will enjoy a variety of models that offer some of the most advanced technology, superb features, beautiful interior, and an extremely safe feeling.
2020 Kia Telluride
The 2020 Kia Telluride may seem like a weird choice, but it really is an impressive ride and we can pretty much guarantee that you will feel the same about it. Not only is it great, but it also is not an eyesore.
Although it may seem more comfortable and leisurely, it is also a refined vehicle that could make any passenger fall asleep quite easily.
On the flip side, its V6 3.8-liter engine is able to provide a substantial amount of power as well as an unobtrusive, responsive eight-speed transmission. What more can you ask for when you already have so much?
For you to fully enjoy a Kia Telluride, you will only need to fork over $31,690. This is a pretty affordable price for all of the features that are included. You can easily upgrade to the EX, which is at a comfortable price of $37,090 and comes with an advanced Highway Driving Assist system.
• Beautiful interior
• Smooth, quiet, refined
• Exceptional value
• It could use an increase in torque
• Hesitant transmission
• No control of the descent
2020 Acura RDX
The 2020 Acura RDX has come such a long way with its design that it no longer appears to be a CRV. It includes a new engine and platform as well as being pretty balanced with a significant amount of features. The ride is balanced, fuel-efficient, more than spacious, and includes advanced technology. In order to keep the price under $40,000, your best option will be the standard model.
• Improved turbocharge
• The ride is comfortable, balanced, and refined
• Difficulty reading the gauges
• Difficulty with Infotainment console
• Automatic transmission hesitates after shifting to drive or reverse
2020 GMC Terrain Denali
When the Denali from GMC is thought of, it can be easily compared to the Sierra or Yukon; however, there seems to be something about the Denali that is able to keep up with the rest. The reason is because of the package that the Denali receives that includes exclusive wheels and grille, a nano coating, plenty of chrome, and LED lighting. But that is not what makes the Denali so special because it also includes advanced safety features, premium Bose audio, a power liftgate, leather seats, and refined suspension. Besides these, other Denali features include a standard terrain turbocharger.
• Very satisfying ride
• Interior is silent
• More than enough power
• Average fuel efficiency
• Shift control feels odd
2020 Infiniti QX50
The 2020 Infiniti QX50 offers a lot this year, including its VC-Turbo that implements a compression that changes so that fuel efficiency and performance are improved. This gives great results and easily delivers fuel economy that is impressive with a drive that is exciting. Not only that, but the Infiniti QX50 offers a spacious cargo area, beautiful interior, and spacious seating. The price is also attractive at under $40,000 which is nice with all of the extras that come with it.
• Seating and interior is comfortable and roomy
• Spacious cargo space
• Quiet interior at any speed
• The delivery of power is inconsistent
• Fuel efficiency is disappointing
• Unnatural and too light steering
2020 Kia Sportage SX Turbo
The 2020 Kia Sportage is priced nicely to remain competitive and it will not cost you anywhere near $40,000 for the SX. It comes standard with the optional turbocharged as well as many features that are more than impressive. A few of these features include heated and ventilated leather seats, a smart power liftgate, panoramic sunroof, advanced safety technology, parking sensors, and a premium audio system.
• Quality of the ride is smooth
• Seating is spacious in both front and rear
• The dashboard is attractive and features are appealing
• Interior is quiet at any speed
• Only has modest cargo space
• Not as fuel-efficient as the competition
