ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

If you're interested in a new family car but don't want to pay new-car pricing, you may want to consider a certified pre-owned (CPO) model, which will give you discounted pricing and a manufacturer-backed warranty. But don't think buying a CPO family vehicle means you need to choose something dull. On the contrary, there are a lot of exciting family cars available with certified pre-owned warranties, and we're listing six of our favorites that tout excellent practicality and great performance.

2015 BMW 335i

2012-2015 BMW 335i

While you might not think of the BMW 3 Series as a family car, modern models have grown so much that they have ample room in back for toddlers or older kids and plenty of trunk space for their inevitable accessories. But even though the 3 Series is bigger than it has been, the 2012-2015 335i sedan still offers just as much fun as always, largely thanks to a responsive 300-horsepower turbocharged 6-cylinder engine. If you choose a certified pre-owned 335i, you can receive a big discount from new. There are currently around 200 models listed on Autotrader with an average price of $34,600, plus BMW's excellent CPO warranty, which offers bumper-to-bumper coverage for up to 6 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date.

2015 Buick Regal GS

2012-2015 Buick Regal GS

Although a Buick sedan might not be the first vehicle on your shopping list when you're thinking about fun family cars, the Regal GS absolutely deserves consideration. The main reason is its excellent acceleration, as the Regal GS boasts a muscular 270-hp turbocharged 4-cylinder and a 0-to-60 mile-per-hour time of just over 6 seconds. It also offers a true 6-speed manual transmission and a host of brawny exterior upgrades. The best part? Buick's CPO warranty boasts powertrain coverage for up to 6 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date with no deductible. Right now, there are 77 different certified pre-owned 2012-2015 Regal GS models listed on Autotrader with an average price of around $24,500.

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

2013-2015 Ford Explorer Sport

The Ford Explorer Sport is one of today's top sporty family vehicles, and it's an even better deal as a certified pre-owned vehicle. That's partially because of Ford's CPO program, which offers powertrain warranty coverage for up to 7 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date, plus 1 year of additional bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage. But it's also because buying a CPO Explorer Sport will save you money compared to a new model, as there are currently 270 examples on Autotrader with an average asking price of $36,600, which is a big discount compared to the new model's manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $46,100 plus options. The best part is under the hood, as the Explorer Sport offers a 365-hp turbocharged V6 that rockets the SUV to 60 mph in just 6 seconds.

2015 Infiniti Q50

2014-2015 Infiniti Q50

The Infiniti Q50 is a luxurious sport sedan offering modern styling, cutting-edge technology and a muscular V6 engine with an impressive 328 hp, plus many of today's latest safety features, making it an excellent choice for families. While a new Q50 can be a pricey proposition, especially when loaded with options, a certified pre-owned model can be a great deal. You don't just receive Infiniti's excellent CPO warranty, which offers 6 years and, amazingly, unlimited miles of coverage in some circumstances, but you also get reasonable pricing. There are currently more than 630 different certified pre-owned 2014-2015 Q50 models on Autotrader with an average price of just $32,300.

2015 Jaguar XF

2012-2015 Jaguar XF

The Jaguar XF is an excellent luxury sedan with a roomy, kid-friendly interior and performance that ranges from adequate (240 hp; 0-to-60 in around 8 seconds) to raucous (with some models offering over 500 hp and 0-to-60 times of just 4 seconds). A certified pre-owned 2012-2015 XF also benefits from one of the best warranties on the market, with Jaguar offering 7 years or 100,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage from the original sale date. The best part is you don't have to spend a fortune for a CPO XF, as there are 210 different 2012-2015 models currently listed on Autotrader with an average price of $38,500, which is a huge discount over the MSRP that ranges from $48,500 with shipping to well over $70,000 with options.

2015 Subaru Forester

2014-2015 Subaru Forester XT

Although the Subaru Forester might look like a traditional compact crossover on the outside, the turbocharged XT model is quite impressive under the skin. It features a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with 250 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, good for a 0-to-60 time of just over 6 seconds. Newer models also boast Subaru's excellent EyeSight safety suite, which touts some excellent family-friendly features. Getting a certified pre-owned 2014-2015 Forester XT is a good financial decision, as not only do you have 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage from the original sale date, but you also receive a good discount from new, with currently 70 CPO models listed on Autotrader with an average price of just $27,000.
