Audi, Chevy Aveo top favorite cars among baby boomers

As baby boomers continue to age, many are choosing to get a new car to go with their new lifestyle. Most are looking for a sporty car after years of being behind the wheel of an SUV or minivan, and according to Forbes magazine there are several models that stand out above the rest.

The general assumption might be that baby boomers will automatically gravitate toward luxury cars or convertibles, but one of the most popular is more subtle. The Chevrolet Aveo offers a sleek design that will appeal for anybody looking for a more youthful ride. Additionally, since it is available for around $15,000, the price tag is appealing as well.

Although the Aveo is more subdued, there are certainly baby boomer consumers looking to get behind the wheel of something more flashy. Specifically, the Audi A5 is a popular choice to those who are not afraid of spending a little extra, which is usually not a problem as analyst Jesse Toprak told the news source that many "have reached a heightened income level giving them both time and financial freedom."

Whether one is looking for a sporty Audi or a youthful Chevy, New Jersey Auction has plenty of makes and models at affordable prices.
