What are the Coolest Cars Under $18,000?

Kelly Blue Book has compiled their list of the top 10 coolest cars under $18,000. Today as the average car price is well into the $20,000’s it is good to know that there are cheaper alternatives that are still cool to own.

The cars that are compiled in this list stood out for their overall affordability, style, performance and fuel economy. They also had to be fun to drive!

The list of qualifying vehicles was put together using Kelly Blue Book’s (KBB) New Car Blue Book Values, which reflect actual real world prices and are more accurate than going solely on the manufacturer retail price.

According to Jack R. Nerad , executive editorial director and executive marketing analyst, Kelly Blue Book’s hmm.com, “The $18,000 price point is a logical demarcation of affordability since it represents an average monthly payment of $300 to $350 over the course of a five-year loan.”
