Ask any New Yorker about the best modes of transportation in their city and they’ll tell you its taxis, subways, and sidewalks. (Maybe roller skates…)
But driving your own car…not so much.
Yep, the Big Apple is very much a public transit city. But millions of people who live in the outer boroughs and nearby towns depend on their car to commute into work every day. It means tons of cars are being bought and sold in the NYC area every day—and here at Peddle, we’re always keeping an eye on the trends.
For starters, lots of people have been reconfiguring their lives since remote working went mainstream. In some cases, this means moving out of Manhattan and pitching up somewhere more leafy. Without the N-Train handy, car ownership suddenly makes sense.
On the flip side, lots of households have found that without the need to commute every day, their car is collecting dust in the garage. With gas prices rising, it’s not the greatest time to do a lot of driving. And with prices for cars peaking too, there’s plenty of reasons why now is a good time to sell your old car, or cash it in for a more efficient model.
And if you’re based in New York and thinking about selling your car, you’re probably wondering how much you could get for it. Peddle is a major car buyer in New York, and we’re making new offers every day. Not only will we make you an instant offer in seconds, but we’ll arrange a free pick up of your car and hand you a check on the spot. It’s fast, convenient and you get some extra bucks at the end of it.
So let’s take a look at some of the most popular cars in the area and what we pay for them.
The Prius is a bestseller across the country and New York is no different. It’s probably the best known hybrid drive in the world and it’s top in its class for fuel efficiency. The Prius boasts plenty of space and a sleek design—so it suits someone who likes to drive with style.The resale value is known to be pretty good too.

Like the CRV, the Equinox is a best-selling compact SUV that ticks the boxes for tons of New Yorkers. Big enough for a comfy ride and small enough to deal with tight parking spaces—what more do you need?
