Everybody wants a nice car with lots of features.
But many people think they can’t afford it. For those of you who feel that way, Metro Carguide has developed a list of very cool car models that sell for less than $20,000.
Surprisingly, it’s a list that includes a variety of exciting, fun vehicles.
We chose the $20,000 price point because that would usually give buyers a reasonable average monthly payment over the life of a typical car loan or lease. Fuel economy wasn’t one of our criteria, but every one provides good mileage. Each was chosen based on price, design, style and performance. The choice for this week is:
Jeep Wrangler X: $19,995
Why not own an icon? You already know it has been tackling tough off-road terrain for over 60 years. But there’s something else — it’s also the second-cheapest convertible on sale in Canada. You can take off the doors and cloth top for cruising down to Wasaga Beach.
Equipped with four-wheel-drive and a torquey, bulletproof 3.8-litre V6 engine, the Wrangler X isn’t the best commuter vehicle.
But for this money, no other vehicle lets you convert urban angst into a weekend off-road adventure.
