Top 10 Best Cars For The Money Includes Tesla And Prius C

Autobytel’s editors announced their top new car picks that offer consumers the biggest bang for their buck—the vehicles that maximize just how much car buyers get for their money.

The company said its editors selected their top picks based on value as it relates to vehicle features, safety, fuel economy, styling and overall consumer appeal, among other criteria.

“Over the last ten years, automakers have really turned up the volume, producing a robust lineup of high quality cars on the road today,” said Michelle Naranjo, editor-in-chief of Autobytel Inc. “Our top picks aren’t necessarily the most affordable on the market, but if you’re looking for well-rounded features, excellent safety ratings, attractive styling and great reviews for the money, these cars should definitely be on your consideration list.”

Following are Autobytel’s Top 10 Best Cars for the Money picks:

  • Audi A6: $43,995
  • Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: $51,995
  • Ford Focus: $16,995
  • Ford Mustang GT: $31,695
  • Honda Fit: $16,125
  • Jaguar F-Type: $69,895
  • Lexus RX 350: $40,660
  • Nissan Xterra: $23,800
  • Tesla Model S: $70,080
  • Toyota Prius c: $19,890

“The Tesla S completely shatters every preconception of what an electric car could and could not be,” said Naranjo. “Those who thought they’d have to compromise luxury for efficiency will be happily disappointed. This is a powerful, prestigious car delivering far more performance potential than most drivers will ever exploit on the road.”
