Most Reliable Discontinued 2020 Car Models That You Can Buy Right Now

These leftover models are reliable and performed well in our tests

A discontinued model isn't necessarily a bad car; sometimes it just doesn't fit into an automaker's plans. And right now, as buyers snap up SUVs at the expense of sedans and hatchbacks, there are a number of models that aren't being brought back for the 2021 model year.

This means that some of the unsold 2020 models can be had at a discount. Car dealers want to get these slower-selling models off their lots as quickly as possible, so they can get some money for them and free up space for the new 2021 models.
