#4: Ford Mustang
You already know plenty about the Ford Mustang, as it is one of the classic, most-enduring American cars of all time. Do we really need to elaborate on the looks of a Mustang? This car represents the open road, baseball, apple pie, and everything else American. If you grew up in this country, odds are you’re already quite fond of the timeless, stylish muscle car that is the Ford Mustang.
However, the Ford Mustang was redesigned for 2015, giving it the feel of a truly contemporary American muscle car. The exterior is still as pretty as ever, and the look has been improved and modernized. While the looks can’t be beat for the price, the Mustang also offers plenty of performance, which is hardly a surprising development. This car puts out 435 horsepower from its V8 engine, and gives you 280 lb.-ft. at 4000 rpm of torque, making it one of the most powerful cars that you can buy in this price range..
With a starting MSRP of just $29,300, the 2015 Mustang is a great value for the price. It might not be the most practical car in the world, but if you’re looking for an impressive, stylish vehicle that will give you decent returns in both longevity and enjoyment, the Mustang is still one of the best options out there in 2015.

Here we enter the rarified air of affordable cars from brands that are generally not known for such things. However, the 2015 Audi A3 is Audi’s gorgeous, attainable version of luxury, starting at just under $31,000. The A3 comes in several different versions (i.e. Sportback, Convertible, and Cabriolet) all of which come with varying price tags. However, all of the iterations of the Audi A3 have one thing in common – they are incredibly good-looking vehicles.
The 2015 Audi A3 is stylish inside and out, and gives you a truly luxurious feeling for a car that doesn’t cost as much as you’d expect. The exterior and interiors here are high-end and classy, complete with leather and wood-grain finishes on the inside, and a sleek, stylish design on the outside. This car is a guaranteed head-turner, and you can get it without having to break the bank.
If Audi’s goal with the 2015 A3 was to provide a luxurious car for those who don’t have the money for one of the company’s premier vehicles, they succeeded wildly. And the A3 is so attractive and excellent that the casual driver might just feel like he’s driving an $80,000 car instead of a $30,000 one. The 2015 Audi A3 is an easy pick near the top of our list.
