Top 25 New Cars for Senior Drivers

June 8, 2017

This week, Consumer Reports compiled a list of the 25 cars they recommend for senior drivers - you might want to take a look if you're in this segment.

They looked at vehicles that rated well and were easy to get into and out of, as well as having the features that are most useful for older drivers such as technologies like blind spot warning and emergency braking.

Here's the full list:

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
