The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta is the cheapest new sedan on our list with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $16,215 for the entry level base model vehicle. The 2015 model Jetta received a variety of new updates. These include new structural enhancements and changes to the front and rear styling of the vehicle. Volkswagen also introduced several new safety features and improved the materials quality used in the interior of the vehicle. The TDI version of the Jetta also received an upgraded diesel engine with more power and improved fuel economy.
There are three other sedans under the $20,000 mark on the list, the 2015 Nissan Sentra ($16,480), 2015 Dodge Dart ($16,495), and the 2015 Chevrolet Cruze ($17,745). Keep in mind, prices listed are for the base model vehicle. You may have to pay a little more depending on how you want the vehicle equipped.
Number ten on the list is the 2015 Chrysler 200. Chrysler completely redesigned the vehicle for the 2015 model year. They provided consumers with a stronger V-6 engine, clean infotainment system, and much higher quality interior materials. The base model list price for the Chrysler 200 is $21,700 and is also available in an all-wheel-drive (AWD) model for a little bit more.
Competition Between Dealers Always Gets You the Best Price
When negotiating a new car’s 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 vehicle. I highly recommend using an online referral service such as Ryde Shopper and Motor Trend, their quotes will automatically include any discounts or cash-back incentives currently available.
In addition, the above sites will tell you which dealerships in your local area are currently the most flexible with their new car pricing. These sites provide valuable information for anyone thinking about buying or leasing a new car or truck.
