The Best Used Cars to Buy If You’re an Athletic Coach

Used Car for Athletic Coach

If you are an athletic coach, you need a used vehicle with tons of room to transport gear. Once in awhile, you may have to take a player or two along with you as well. What this means is that the vehicle you choose needs to be flexible, and have a good deal of both passenger and cargo space. Most likely, you will want your rig to serve as your personal vehicle as well.

With those criteria in mind, we have evaluated a number of used vehicles that we see as being the best choices for an athletic coach, and have narrowed our top five down to the Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Flex, Acura RDX, Honda CR-V and Hyundai Santa Fe.

  • Chevrolet Traverse: The Traverse really stands out when it comes to spacious SUVs. The three row seating will accommodate eight people comfortably, even if all eight are adults. You can fold the seats down for more cargo space. This is also a vehicle that steers and handles superbly, so you can enjoy driving it.

  • Ford Flex: If you’re transporting heavy gear, you’ll be thankful for the large doors and the comparatively low floor in the Ford Flex. This makes it a lot easier to get your gear in and out of the rig. You’ll also find plenty of storage hooks for team jackets and jerseys.

  • Acura RDX: This is a really nice-looking SUV, and it also delivers a good deal in the way of pep thanks to the powerful V6 engine. The rear seat backs are spring-loaded, and fold down for when you need a fair bit of cargo space, and storage bins are plentiful.

  • Honda CR-V: This is a small SUV, but it will still hold quite a bit of gear and passengers. It handles well, and is equipped with a lot of features, including a rearview camera, which can be very useful when you’re down to the wire time-wise on game day and lots of people are milling about.

  • Hyundai Santa Fe: This is a nice-looking rig, with three-row seating. Aside from the third row being a little too tight for adults, you’ll find that the Santa Fe is a good, comfortable ride. Independent third-row climate control is a pleasing touch.
