12 Affordable Sedans To Buy
Posted on April 16, 2021
Whether you are a smaller family, a couple or simply a single person, affordable sedans are the perfect way to conveniently and comfortably navigate life on the roads. The beauty of a classic 5-seater is often overlooked in this day and age of high end crossover SUVS, but a sedan is a surprisingly practical option for everyday life as well as weekends.
In fact, there are a number of luxury sedans available as popular cars on the market, and at an affordable price! Armed with a variety of safety features and offering a practical fuel economy (sedans are famously more fuel efficient than larger vehicles!), we are proud to offer these affordable used luxury sedans right here at CarHub. And remember that at CarHub we do Live Market pricing for all our new and used vehicles. We monitor current market prices across Canada and give you our best price first, so you don’t have to haggle for that great price.

5. Chevrolet Malibu:
The Chevy Malibu is a classic ride, and luckily also deserves a spot in CarHub’s list of Affordable Sedans! This Chevrolet Malibu was mentioned as one of KBB.com’s 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000. Running on a Turbocharged Gas I4 1.5L/91 engine, it also offers 6 speakers and Chevrolet’s 4G LTE data and Wi-fi hotspot.

It will keep you safe with the inclusion of Backup Camera and Right Side Blind Spot Camera. It runs on an Intercooled Turbo Regular Unleaded I-4 1.5 L/91 engine, with a continuously variable transmission.
According to KBB.com, the Mazda3 is on the list of 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000. We can certainly see why, as this classic-looking and practical ride comes with a 6-speed SKYACTIV transmission that allows for manual-shift mode and drive selection switch. The car also comes with a 6-way adjustable driver’s seat and a 4-way passenger seat.
8. Volkswagen Jetta:

The reliable Buick Verano runs on an ECOTEC 2.4L DOHC 4-cylinder SIDI (Spark Ignition Direct Injection) engine, with front-wheel drive.

The Buick Verano has 6 speakers, along with a 7 inch display screen. Meanwhile, the StabiliTrak stability control system acts as a safety feature by offering traction control.
11. Audi A3
You may think of an Audi A3 as a luxury vehicle which may be outside of your price point, but a pre-owned Audi A3 in good condition can save you some cash and also offer you a sweet ride which boasts sophistication and style. The Audi A3 Sportback also packs another added bonus- it is meant to be environmentally friendly, as it is built with a hybrid (gas/electric) engine. The vehicle itself has 17 inch alloy wheels, a 6-speed automatic transmission, Bang & Olufsen premium car sound system and a heated steering wheel. Meanwhile, safety features like Audi Pre-Sense and Side Assist make for a safer ride. Also, check out our top 5 reasons to buy a pre-owned Audi.
12. Mercedes-Benz CLA Class
Similar to Audi, a beautiful, shiny Benz hardly seems like it belong on a list of Affordable Sedans. However, this beauty is priced under $30,000, which makes it far more affordable than a brand new Mercedes-Benz. The CLA Class comes packed with plenty of perks, like a panoramic sunroof, 17-inch rims, 8 speakers, a 12-way driver's seat and 10-way passenger seat and a leather steering wheel. It runs on a I-4 2.0 L/121 engine, with an automatic transmission. Also, read our take on a guide to buying a pre-owned Mercedes-Benz.
