We’d buy this SUV from 2010 on a new Ford Mach-E any day

The stronghold Mustang Mach E is an all-new electric model from Ford, which competes in the market of the hugely popular compact crossover. The name of the car is a bit confusing, as most people associate the name Mustang with the famous muscle car of the 1960s. Although, you can see the design of the current Mustang has been emulated in this model. The rear end in particular looks very Mustang with similarly designed taillights.
There are many options available, from the 88 kWh rear-wheel drive model capable of 350 miles to the fastest dual-motor all-wheel drive version capable of 0-60 mph in just 5.5 seconds. The base model starts at $43,895 and offers a range of 247 miles. The vehicle offers reasonable room for 5 adults, given that the electric motors eliminate the requirement for a transmission tunnel that normally affects rear legroom. The load capacity is a little disappointing, the box delivers 402 liters. The trunk provides an additional 81 liters. As a package, the car is a fairly attractive proposition, however, we’d be tempted to buy some of these used 2010 SUVs instead.

10 Audi Q7

The Q7 was a very good looking car for its time. First launched in 2006, the radical design was Audi’s first foray into the SUV market.

6 Cayenne Porsche
