6 Best Cars for Less Than $20,000

November 16, 2017

Are you looking to buy a brand new car but don't want to spend a ton of money? The average new car costs around $33,000, but not everyone has that type of budget.

To help you get started in your search, AutoBlog recently published a list of the 6 best new cars under $20,000. Although the MSRP on a couple of these starts over $20,000, the average negotiated prices can be had for less than $20,000.

Vehicles on the list include the 2018 Honda Fit and 2018 Kia Soul.

If you're currently in the market for a new (but inexpensive vehicle), I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggleand Edmunds Price Promise to see the best prices in your local area.

Best New Cars Under $20,000

Vehicle MSRP Range
2018 Honda Fit $16,190 - $20,520
2018 Kia Soul $16,100 - $22,800
2018 Subaru Impreza $18,495 - $24,695
2018 Mazda Mazda3 $18,095 - $23,895
2018 Chevrolet Malibu $21,680 - $30,975
2017 Nissan Rogue Sport $21,420 - $26,070

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar and Edmunds are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
