You might think the millennials’ top picks in used cars would be the Ford Focus or Honda Civic, but this isn’t the case according to a recent article at USA Today. Millennials are looking for “cool” when it comes to used, and according to Edmunds.com, of all the used Dodge Magnum station wagons purchased, the highest percentage of buyers are millennials!
There are 10 used vehicles a recent study showed to be the favorites of this age group, although six of them have been discontinued. The study focused on buyers ages 18 to 34, and the types of cars that were this groups’ favorites from the 2005 model year and up. While you may be surprised to learn that millennials are crazy about the Pontiac Aztek, a vehicle that made several “ugliest cars” lists over the years, perhaps the car’s appearance on the hit show Breaking Bad is what has made this once ugly vehicle cool again.
What are the top six favorites of millennials in used cars thus far this year according to the study?
Dodge Magnum, Chrysler Pacifica, Subaru WRX, Chevrolet Trailblazer, Volkswagen R32, and the Pontiac Aztek are the six most popular, in that order. If you’re reading this, you’ve probably noticed many of these models are no longer made. In fact, out of the top six the Subaru WRX is the only model that IS still manufactured today!
Quite interesting – but what four vehicles finished out the top 10 list? The Nissan GT-R, Saturn Outlook, Dodge Durango, and Lexus IS-F.
For millennials, price is the most critical factor – however it’s clear with these choices that this age group also has a playful side, something automakers may went to keep in mind when determining styles in future models.
