New Cars for Used Car Prices

With a $15,000 budget, it may take some detective work to find a new car that delivers everything on your list. Explore a range of subcompact cars, from the tiniest Smart Fortwo to a surprisingly spacious Chevrolet Sonic. Some are loaded with standard tech features, like the Ford Fiesta and Chevrolet Spark. The Kia Rio and Hyundai Accent crush the competition on warranty. Some subcompacts offer a turbocharged engine for more power, though that could bump the price above the $15,000 limit.

U.S. News & World Report brings you the latest information on cars, trucks, SUVs, hybrids, and minivans in our rankings. Let’s look at nine options for about $15,000.
