Getting a New Car Without Breaking the Bank

Years ago buying an inexpensive new car meant giving up a great deal of features. Some cars even had an optional radio, while others only came equipped with a driver’s side mirror.

We’ve looked at some of the best cars under $20,000 and will highlight the surprising features that are available.
