Another spring staple is car-buying season, but Autotrader data reveals that consumers are willing to wait up to a year to get all of their must-have features in their next vehicle.* Luckily for golf lovers, Autotrader editors have done the busy work to narrow down the list of new and Certified Pre-Owned cars perfect for their needs.

"Golf, like other enthusiast sports, requires lots of gear and equipment, but our list of cars addresses more than just the need for ample cargo space," said Brian Moody, site editor for Autotrader. "We know golfers are also searching for interior comfort, time-saving features like easy fold-down seating and a car that still feels sporty."

Autotrader's list of top 10 best new and CPO cars for golf lovers includes:

  • Buick LaCrosse
  • Chevrolet Corvette
  • Dodge Challenger
  • Hyundai Genesis
  • Lexus RX
  • Volkswagen Golf
  • CPO BMW 5-Series
  • CPO Cadillac CTS
  • CPO Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • CPO Volkswagen Touareg

Autotrader editors remind car shoppers to bring any sporting equipment, child seats or other essentials with them to the test drive. "The test drive is your only chance to get a feel for how this vehicle will fit into your lifestyle," said Moody. "Sometimes you don't realize just how much cargo space you need until you pack it all in."
