#6. Chevrolet Camaro V-6

If you are looking for a beast within your budget, then we suggest you go for a Chevy Camaro.

It is one of the most iconic cars you see on the streets so why not own one?

#5. Acura ILX

Price: USD 27,990

Though not the cheapest name on this list, Acura’s ILX is definitely worth the price tag it carries. The compact sport-sedan not only makes a statement with its stylish features like the jeweled LED headlights, but also with the comfort you feel driving it.

#4. Hyundai Elantra

Price: USD 17,150

Some of you might be surprised to Elantra in the list of best cars, but what brings it here is overall performance. Though it may not stand out in any one aspect, it can be considered a jack of all trades with reasonably good performance, design and build.

#3. Nissan 370Z Coupe

Price: USD 29,990

While the price is touching the limit, and will probably cost you a little more getting in on the street, but we had to mention it here. It packs a 332-horsepower, 3.7-liter V6 engine and does not lag behind in terms of comfort either and promises the feel of a luxury car.

#2. Chevrolet Cruze

Price: USD 16,975

Among the cheapest cars on this list, Cruze by Chevrolet is also among the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid ones, offering up to 35 miles per gallon. It may be on par with most cars on this list in terms of comfort and design, but its features are where it shines with its 4G LTE connectivity and programmable key fobs.

#1. Mazda6

Price: USD 21,950

The Japanese automobiles are a class apart and Mazda6 topping our list is a testament to that. It might not stand out in terms of power (184 hp), but it can certainly give any German sedan a run for its money in terms of handling. The car not only impresses with its specs and performance, but also its sleek design which screams class and elegance.
