A new car to fit a resolution is a huge commitment, but it might just be the thing to (sometimes literally) drive you to your goal.
Here are the cars Edmunds believes will help achieve some of the most popular New Years resolutions.
LOSE WEIGHT: 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata ($26,650)
Shedding those pesky holiday pounds is a common resolution, and few things inspire losing weight more than a tight fit. Thats especially true for cars, which is why we recommend the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata. The Miata is a small roadster that recently underwent a diet of its own. When the engineers designed this Miata generation, they wanted it to weigh the same as the first model from 1990.
Nimble handling and a peppy engine make the Miata fun to drive, but its the compact cabin that provides the primary motivation for hitting the gym. The Miata is also well suited for resolvers tackling their weight loss journey with a buddy since the cramped two-seat interior will cause wider passengers to rub shoulders.
BE MORE SPONTANEOUS: 2020 Jeep Wrangler ($29,790)
Those looking to add more off-the-cuff adventure to their lives need a vehicle that is similarly ready to go at a moments notice. The 2020 Jeep Wrangler embodies that spirit more than any other vehicle on sale today. Even though its on-road manners are unrefined compared to modern crossover SUVs, the Jeep Wrangler offers unsurpassed capability when pavement turns to dirt.
Every Wrangler comes standard with four-wheel drive and plenty of ground clearance to aid with off-road adventure. Specialty models such as the Rubicon are equipped with specialized features to enhance the Wranglers abilities further. Five passengers can get in on the muddy fun thanks to the four-door Wrangler Unlimiteds ample rear legroom.
TAKE MORE FAMILY VACATIONS: 2020 Kia Telluride ($32,785)
It can be difficult getting the entire family on the same page for much-needed rest and relaxation. Even then, choosing the right vehicle to shuttle everyone around presents a challenge. Edmunds suggestion is the 2020 Kia Telluride.
Most adults will have no problem fitting in the third row of the Telluride, unlike many SUVs in the midsize class. Theres also room for everyones luggage because the Telluride offers a useful amount of cargo space, even with the third-row seat deployed.
The Telluride can further incentivize you to head out for a trip thanks to its easy-driving nature. It doesnt feel overly large or bulky, and its V6 engine has no problem with launching you into quick-moving highway traffic. Your new family hauler wont cost an arm and a leg, either, because the Telluride is less expensive than similarly equipped competitors.
SAVE MONEY: 2017 Hyundai Elantra
Reducing expenses is one of the most popular resolutions, and shoppers looking for a new ride can save quite a bit by going with a slightly used car. In general, you can save 30% to 40% by going this route. Small cars, in particular, offer strong value. One of our favorites is the current-generation Hyundai Elantra, which was introduced for the 2017 model year.
Highlights include an unusually spacious cabin, comfortable seats and a user-friendly infotainment system. The 2017 Elantra comes in a number of trims, starting with the SE. High-mileage used Elantras can be had for under $10,000. Models with moderate mileage and the desirable Popular Equipment package list for about $12,000.
Youll save on fuel costs, too, since the standard 2.0-liter engine sips fuel at a rate of 32 mpg in combined city/highway driving, according to the EPA.
