The automotive industry has changed an awful lot over the last few years. When the economy went into the toilet back in 2008, companies that were bloated and stagnant were forced to reinvent themselves and start from scratch. The result? There are more good-looking, innovative, and fuel-efficient cars out there than ever before—and they’re in a price range that most people actually afford.
So today we’re going to run down some of the most anticipated affordable new rides of the new model year. Of course, “affordable” is a relative term. What’s affordable for you isn’t what’s affordable for me. So I should explain before we get started that what I mean by “affordable” is that none of these cars are supercrs. We’re not looking at automobiles that seat two people and cost a two hundred grand. Instead, we’re looking at cars that you—or at least somebody you know—might actually buy. So while a few of the rides on this list are fairly luxurious, they’re not out of reach for people who have to work for a living.
With that said, let’s take a look and see what we’ve got, shall we?
