New cars under $20,000
Base prices: $15,960 (SX4) to $19,074 (Grand Vitara)
Yep, every Suzuki model. The Kizashi sedan, subcompact SX4 sedan and hatchback, Equator pickup, and Grand Vitara SUV (with a $1,250 discount) all start under $20,000. The Kizashi is a great Jetta alternative that offers all-wheel-drive and fine interior materials for the class. The SX4 Crossover is the only subcompact car on the market with all-wheel-drive. Even with all this, Suzuki is an invisible company in the United States. If you can find a dealer, you ought to try one.
