Nissan has long been known for offering great value and reliability. The company's products in recent years have covered all of the bases, with vehicles targeted toward everyone from families with kids, to families without kids, to fuel conscious shoppers and to those in need of utility. Here we'll cover seven of the best used Nissans available today for around $20,000.

2016-2018 Nissan Altima

2016-2018 Nissan Altima

The midsize Nissan Altima has been on sale since the early 1990s and it's currently quite easy to find a relatively new 2016-2018 model for under $20,000, with over 1,000 listed on Autotrader that fit the bill. Over a third of these come with the larger of the Altima's two available engines, a 3.5-liter V6 putting out 270 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, we love the Altima for its great seats and available active safety technology. SR models come with a sport tuned suspension, while the top-of-the-line SL trim comes with 18-in wheels, a sunroof, adaptive cruise control and front and rear parking sensors. Find a Nissan Altima for sale

2013-2016 Nissan Pathfinder

2013-2016 Nissan Pathfinder

The Pathfinder is Nissan's midsize 3-row family crossover, competing with vehicles like the Honda Pilot and the Toyota Highlander. Until its redesign for the 2013 model year, the Pathfinder was a truck like body-on-frame SUV, but with the new 2013 model, the Pathfinder moved to a front-wheel drive-based unibody platform, offering improved efficiency and driving dynamics. Powering the Pathfinder is a 3.5-liter V6 engine putting out 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque and mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). What the transmission lacks in refinement it makes up for in fuel efficiency, and the Pathfinder returns 20 miles per gallon in the city, 26 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg in combined driving. A hybrid model was offered briefly in 2014, but slow sales led to its discontinuation despite it returning 25 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. Altogether, the Pathfinder is a great family SUV and comes loaded with value in the form of an available Bose audio system, a dual-panel moonroof and an 8.0-in touchscreen navigation system. There are currently over 1,000 2013-2016 Pathfinders listed on Autotrader for around $20,000 or less, many of which offer all-wheel driveFind a Nissan Pathfinder for sale

2014-2018 Nissan Rogue

2014-2018 Nissan Rogue

The compact Nissan Rogue is one of the best-selling SUVs on the market. The second-generation model came out for the 2014 model year and wears sleek, attractive styling. The Rogue came with a third row and room for seven people from 2014 through 2017, although Nissan did away with the Rogue's third row for 2018. Powering the Rogue is a 170 hp 4-cylinder mated with an underwhelming CVT, which can be rough and noisy. Nonetheless, buyers in the market for a safe, dependable family SUV will find the Rogue attractive, and there are currently tons to choose from on Autotrader for under $20,000, many of which are as new as the 2017 or 2018 model years and offer AWD.

2015-2018 Nissan Murano

2015-2018 Nissan Murano

The midsize Murano offers room for five people and is available with either FWD or AWD. Offered as a middle ground between a mainstream crossover and a luxury vehicle, the Murano offers enhanced driving dynamics and interior refinement, not to mention a striking design. Inside, the Murano offers a number of upscale touches like an available Bose audio system, a motion-activated rear lift gate, rain sensing windshield wipers, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats and a bevy of active safety features. There are currently close to 1,000 2015-2018 Muranos listed on Autotrader for $20,000 or less. Just under half offer AWD. Find a Nissan Murano for sale

2016-2018 Nissan Maxima

2016-2018 Nissan Maxima

The Maxima is a midsize sedan offering styling and refinement above and beyond what you get with a more mainstream sedan like the Altima. While the value-oriented Altima is geared toward families, the Maxima is more about refinement and driving dynamics. One engine is offered: a 3.5-liter V6 making 300 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque, good enough to get the Maxima from 0-to-60 mph in a brisk 5.9 seconds. Forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking were made standard late in the 2017 model year. Right now on Autotrader, over 1,000 2016 and newer Maximas are listed for around $20,000 or less, close to 150 of which are 2018 models. Find a Nissan Maxima for sale

2008-2015 Nissan Titan

2008-2015 Nissan Titan

Nissan's full-size pickup, the Titan, competes primarily with the Toyota Tundra. While it's never sold in as high volume as the domestic midsize pickups, the Titan offers good reliability and capabilities that align well with the needs of most truck buyers. Powering the 2008-2015 Titan is a 5.6-liter V8 paired with a 5-speed automatic. This gives the Titan a respectable towing capacity of up to 9,300 pounds. Gas mileage is very poor though, coming in at 12 mpg city and 17 mpg highway. If you want off-road capability, look for a Pro-4X model, which introduces skid plates, Bilstein shocks and a locking rear differential, a feature that's never been offered on the Toyota Tundra. Overall, the Titan is a good used truck value. Right now on Autotrader, there are over 800 2008-2015 Titans listed for around $20,000. Of those, 500 come with 4WD, while 100 are off-road ready Pro-4X models. Find a Nissan Titan for sale

2016-2017 Nissan Leaf

2016-2017 Nissan Leaf

We round out our list of affordable used Nissans with the company's foray into the growing electric vehicle segment, the Leaf, which debuted back in the 2011 model year. In the years since, the Leaf's range has continually been increased, and thanks to a larger 30 kW battery, the 2016 Leaf can travel 107 miles on a single charge. While SL and SV models came exclusively with this larger battery, the Leaf's S trim only gained it battery halfway through the 2016 model year, and early S trims from 2016 still shipped with the smaller 24 kW battery. Additional changes to the Leaf for 2016 include a number of upgrades to the vehicle's infotainment and app interfaces. There are currently close to 400 2016-or-newer Nissan Leafs listed on Autotrader for around $20,000 or less. If your driving needs typically consist of only short trips, or if you have a second vehicle, a used Leaf can be a great purchase at around $20,000. Find a Nissan Leaf for sale
