Not talking high end exotic Porsche/Lambos/Ferraris etc. with their exorbitant options. Regular everyday new vehicles whose MSRP makes you go “Nah that’s not worth it”?

Illustration for article titled The Arteon pricing post on FP got me thinking. What is the most overpriced mainstream vehicle?

Jeep Wrangler is an obvious choice but I nominate the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid. Starts at $35,970, goes up to $38,470. You do get a $4502 federal tax credit, but still not worth it for reduced space, performance and meager gains in efficiency and end of the day it’s still a Crosstrek. Another one is the top of the line new Rav4 Limited at $40k. No way it’s worth that. I’d rather get a loaded Mazda CX-5 Turbo Signature model.

Oh, in case you wanted to know the Arteon pricing, The Arteon SE FWD starts at $35,845 + 995 Destination :
