The Best Used Cars to Buy If You’re a Photographer

Used Car for Photographer

If you are a photographer, and you’re considering buying a used car, the big thing to consider is the type of photography you do. Thanks to the advances in digital photography, chances are you’re not hauling around a lot of gear, so the main consideration is the type of vehicle that will get you to where you need to be. Clearly a landscape photographer will have different requirements than, say, a portrait artist or wedding photographer.

With those considerations in mind, we have identified the five best used vehicles for photographers.

  • Jeep Wrangler Rubicon: If you are a landscape photographer, and your work takes you out into parts unknown, then we highly recommend the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. It’s not a particularly attractive vehicle, but then you’re not likely photographing your own rig. The Rubicon will get you over even the roughest terrain.

  • Lexus GX 460: If you do want to photograph your own rig, this SUV will look very nice against whatever backdrop you choose. It will also get you where you want to go, with 50/50 torque split for rough terrain and the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension to reduce chassis roll.

  • Toyota Yaris Three-Door Hatchback: If you do need to take along a bit of gear, you’ll get a fair bit of space with this roomy hatchback. Frequent travelers will also appreciate the fuel efficiency, and more legroom than you really have any right to expect in a compact car.

  • Hyundai Accent Three-Door Hatchback: This little hatchback also features a really nice, comfortable ride and gets great mileage. The one downside to the Accent is that it typically costs a bit more to insure than other cars in its class. However, you’ll probably also pay less for an Accent, so it evens out.

  • Smart Fortwo Coupe: If your work takes you around the city, going from one assignment to the next, you’ll love this little car. It will fit into virtually any parking space, and practically parks itself. It offers great fuel economy as well.

In our opinion, these are the five best used vehicles for photographers. Your choice will, of course, depend on the type of work you do.
