The Best Affordable New Vehicles in U.S. News Rankings 

Searching for new, cheap cars can be a tricky process – especially since many people equate cheap cars with bad quality. Luckily, it’s not as hard to find good, inexpensive new cars as you might think. It can be an overwhelming process if you’re not sure what you want, so we're here to help you narrow your search. We set a price cap of $25,000 for new cars, SUVs, and trucks to provide a list of some of the best affordable cars on the market, according to the U.S. News rankings. 

Our reviews score vehicles based on the categories that matter most to shoppers and rank them within their respective classes. Using that information, we compiled this list. It includes small and midsize sedans, hatchbacks, a few SUVs, and even a couple trucks. 

Bear in mind that our scores frequently change as we receive new data, so the scores in this slideshow may not match those you find elsewhere on our site.
