These cars all provide an exceptional driving experience while keeping your wallet in mind.
Historically, the automobile industry has sustained an economical gap between the most attractive cars and the least attractive cars, the most expensive being cars those which are aesthetically pleasing, luxurious and classy. This, of course, has led to more inexpensive cars being less attractive and underwhelming. However, the automobile industry is changing; more, now than ever, drivers can buy cars for comparatively cheap prices that look amazing, drive great and have many of the same bells and whistles that higher end cars have. This has effectively shrunk the gap between economy grade cars and their high-end counterparts, and because of this, I have gathered some of the car industries newest, most outstanding releases that offer a base model trim for under $25,000. All of these cars are sick, from the way they look, to how they drive and most importantly, how affordable they are. These cars all provide an exceptional driving experience, while keeping your wallet in mind.
Most of the cars on this list are sedans, but I’ve also tried to include cars from other classes, such as crossovers and a couple pickup trucks. By doing this, I hope I can reach every type of driver, from the outdoors explorer to the street racer. The list is organized from most expensive to least expensive and I encourage you to read all the way to the end.
As a side note, I’d like to say that the price for each car is the lowest current MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price), which can vary based on trim, taxes as well as many other factors.
Without further ado, lets begin.
FIAT 124 SPIDER ($24,995)
The Fiat 124 Spider is one of the few convertible sports cars that you can buy brand new for under 25K, and in my opinion, probably the only one worth buying. The design is incredible, giving a look much like that of the Miata, so much so, that the 124 Spider has earned the nickname “Fiata.” I don’t mean to say this as an attempt to discredit the car, but only to compliment it; the design is elegant, sporty and turns heads, and in some ways, it looks better than a Miata. The front end is phenomenal, the body design is captivating and the interior is reminiscent of luxury sports cars that cost 3 or 4 times as much. All things considered, the Fiat 124 Spider is an excellent ride, especially for the price.
