There are few minivans under $5000 that are as reliable as the Kia Sedona. Unfortunately, the Sedona is often overshadowed by its competitors from Honda and Toyota. If you take a hard look at the Sedona, you will find a well-equipped, practical, and extremely affordable minivan. As an added bonus, to find the cars under $5000, you do not have to go back as nearly as many models years as you will with a Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna.
The aftermarket did put together some forced induction options, but the cost was hard to justify as the performance couldn’t really compete with any modified import in the same class.

As is usually the case, the top spot within the XC60 range is reserved for a hybrid model. The T8 eAWD starts from just under $53,000 and offers as much as 400 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque. Power comes courtesy of its 2.0L turbocharged and supercharged 4-cylinder engine and an 87-horsepower electric motor.
The Honda CR-Z has the quirkiest styling of the Honda used cars on our list. It is also the greenest Honda used car available in North America and is rated as an Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV) by the California Air Resources Board. Well, arguably the Honda Insight could be greener, but it is nowhere near as much fun to drive.
