There are a lot of awesome vehicles on the market today, but many of them never reach the limelight. Whether due to poor marketing, ill-timed release dates or their unique styling, many great rides end up flying under the radar on the new and used market. Nevertheless, these underrated cars deserve your consideration — here are six more of the most underrated cars on KSL Cars right now.

2015-2019 Cadillac ATS and ATS-V

Meant to steal sales from the BMW 3 Series, the Cadillac ATS never lived up to its purposes. Although it didn’t end up being competitive with the 3 Series in sales, Cadillac created two excellent sedans in the ATS and ATS-V. The ATS was updated in 2015 with an excellent chassis, sharpened styling, better handling and more power to give the BMW a genuine run for its money, especially in its V form with a manual transmission. 

Despite these significant efforts from Cadillac, the ATS and ATS-V met their time on the chopping block in 2019, but you can still find a used Cadillac ATS or ATS-V on KSL Cars. 

2018-2021 Mazda6

Another excellent sedan, the Mazda6 will be discontinued for the 2022 model year. It’s too bad, considering the 2018-2021 Mazda6 offers some of the best power, refinement, luxury and driving dynamics in its segment. An excellent car to drive and look at, the elegantly styled Mazda6 will go down as one of the great sedans of the 2010s. If you’re not a fan of crossovers and want a traditional sedan, this car is an interesting alternative to the Honda Accords and Toyota Camrys of the market, especially in its Signature trim with a turbocharged engine. Discover the 2018-2021 Mazda6 on KSL Cars today.

2012-2022 Porsche Boxster and 718 Boxster

Go to any car meet or show and you’ll see plenty of Porsches, but hardly any Boxsters among them. While the Porsche 911 is the icon of Porsche lore (which we love), it seems that enthusiasts’ love of Porsche is relegated to only 911s. The Boxster, and, to a lesser extent, the Cayman are almost treated as second-class entries in the Porsche lineup. 

Although it doesn’t carry the same cachet as a 911, the Boxster is an excellent sports car. It's so good that some say it has dynamics equal to or better than a 911 due to its smaller size and just-right wheelbase. It’s a shame the Boxster doesn’t sell better because it’s truly a wonderful car. To see it at the bottom of Porsche’s sales numbers just seems … wrong. So if you’re wanting one of the best handling, most dynamic sports cars on the market, give the Porsche Boxster a chance and right this wrong today.  

2019-2022 Hyundai Veloster N

If you haven’t been paying attention, the Hyundai of today is not the Hyundai of 15 years ago. Scratching and clawing toward the top of the market, Hyundai isn’t shy about pulling out all the stops to make its new cars something special. Case in point: the 2019-2022 Hyundai Veloster N. This quirky little three-door (yes, three!) hatchback is one of the sportiest little cars on the market and yet, nobody buys it.

The award winning Veloster N offers a robust amount of features, technology and performance for the money. It’s even available with a manual transmission or a lightning-fast dual-clutch transmission and produces 275 horsepower. If you’re looking for a sporty daily driver that isn’t afraid to have fun, the Hyundai Veloster N is worth your consideration. 

2009-2019 Ford Flex

Polarizing styling aside, the Ford Flex is one of the most underrated family haulers on the used car market. Averse to most wagons, Americans didn't love the endlessly quirky Ford Flex. Even among Ford buyers, it couldn’t quite compete against its Explorer and Expedition siblings. 

Bread box, brick and refrigerator jokes aside, the Flex is roomy, fun to drive and comfortable, with more interior and cargo room than most other family haulers. But no one knew that because no one bought it. If you’re looking for something completely different from the standard soccer practice lineup, the Ford Flex will guarantee you a spot on the unique-car-driver list. 

2018-2022 Lexus LC 

A perennial favorite on dozens of car periodicals’ “most beautiful” lists, the Lexus LC 500 is a stunner, a future classic and ... a poor seller. Regardless of sales numbers, this luxury coupe starting at just over $92,000 is the standard-bearer for Japanese grand touring. At that price, the LC goes toe-to-toe with stylish heavy hitters such as the Porsche 911 and BMW 8 Series. Where it differs is in the driving experience. Where the Porsche and BMW are sporty, precision-driven machines, the LC delivers a smoother, more tranquil driving experience, especially with its large 5.0-liter V8 powertrain. 

What the LC lacks in reflexes, it makes up for with its comfortable ride and svelte interior. Borrowing styling cues from the LS flagship sedan and the revered LFA of years gone by, the LC is a superb place to spend time in. Buy one now before they’re gone! And don’t be surprised if you find yourself on Pebble Beach in 50 years showing it off. Check out the beautiful Lexus LC on KSL Cars.
