Top 10 Cool Cheap New Cars Available in 2016
If your definition of cool is technology, sporty, modern, rough and tough or just a nicer vehicle than the one your currently driving. Automakers have several cool cheap new cars available to you in 2016.
If you want to drive a cool new car in 2016, you don't have to worry about dishing out thousands of extra dollars to do so. Over the years, consumers have been demanding more, modern technology, style, and design be put into vehicles and we're at a time now where dealer's lots are full of high tech stylish vehicles.
Autobytel put together a list of the cheapest 2016 model new cars with the highest "Cool Factor." Basically, the list contains vehicles considered to be cool and have an entry level price below $30,000.
One of the cheapest cool cars in the sports car category is the 2016 Ford Mustang. The Mustang is not only available in an eight-cylinder, but 2 reduced-priced six-cylinder models also. The entry-level V-6 Ford Mustang starts at $24,145 and gives you a hefty 300 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. All from a sturdy and reliable 3.7 liter six-cylinder engine. For a little more ($25,645) you can step up to the EcoBoost model and enjoy the fuel economy of a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that provides 310 horsepower and 320 lb-ft torque. Both engines are mated up to a six-speed manual transmission that combines both fun and fuel economy. If you decide to go with the four-cylinder EcoBoost model, you be able to go from zero to sixty in less than six seconds, not bad for a four cylinder.
The 2016 Jeep Wrangler leads the way in "Cool" when it comes to sport utility vehicles. The 2016 Wrangler's entry level sticker price is $23,895. This includes standard four-wheel-drive, a soft removable top and a tough rugged suspension to get to any hard to reach off-road place you'd like to explore. The Jeep Wrangler comes equipped with a 3.6 liter V-6 engine that pumps out an impressive 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The Wrangler is the perfect vehicle for off-road enthusiasts looking for a reliable vehicle to take weekend adventures.
Online Competition Always Gets You the Lowest New Car Price
Read my section on how to properly research new cars online before ever stepping foot inside a car dealership to guarantee you pay the lowest new car price and avoid any new car dealer scams.
When negotiating a new cars price, it's important to know the dealer invoice price and what other people are paying for the same vehicle in your local area. Otherwise, you won't know what's a good price to pay for the car.
As always, I highly recommend using an online referral service such as CarClearanceDeals or Edmunds, their quotes will automatically include any discounts or cash-back incentives currently available in the marketplace.
