Ford Mustang
Price: Starting at $24,145
This one squeaks under the $25,000 mark — which is great news for those who feel drawn to this iconic American sports car. Ford has been building Mustangs continuously for the last 50 years, and the latest version debuted as a 2015 model. The V6 Mustang may be entry level, but it’s certainly no slouch. It boasts 300 horsepower with a 6-speed manual transmission and looks awesome with its low, wide stance, HID headlights and signature sequential rear turn signals. Although styling cues abound tying this Mustang to the original, there are plenty of high-tech features to remind you that the current iteration is a thoroughly modern pony car. Goodies include pushbutton start and available all-new SYNC 3 with conversational voice recognition, a smartphone-like screen and intuitive interface.
