You might think that buying a used vehicle is more cost-savvy than buying a new one. But according to a new iSeeCars report, the Chevy Corvette and Traverse are two of the top 10 vehicles you should buy new rather than used.

“While choosing a used car over a new car is typically associated with the greatest cost savings, sometimes the price difference isn’t that significant,” said iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly. The 10 autos that ranked on the company’s report made the list because they had the smallest change in price between their new and gently-used versions.

The Chevy Traverse had a new-over-used price difference of 11.7 percent, while the Chevy Corvette had a 13.6 percent new-over-used price difference. iSeeCars praised the Traverse for its wide variety of family-friendly amenities and segment-leading cargo space. Ly also pointed out how the model was fully redesigned in 2018, which increased its resale value in the used car sector.

The company also gave the Corvette a head-nod for the affordability of its new models compared to past model years. Ly commented on how Chevy offered steep discounts on the 2019 C7 Corvettes right before the C8’s arrival, which closed the price gap between the cost of new and gently-used models.
