The Best 2016 Cars Under $15,000

Car_keys_money-iStock_98602973-PaulBiryukovAs dealers gear up the 2017 model year, now is the perfect time to find great buys on 2016 models. Here we take a look at high-quality cars priced under $15,000. And, happily, it is very possible to find an enjoyable new car at this low end of the automotive price range.

The best cars with base prices under $15,000 are fun to drive, good looking, and reasonably well equipped, considering the price point.

Savvy Car Selling Via Social Media Sharing

1-jaguar_art_of_performance_virtual_videoHow would you like to be the star of your own one-minute action-packed video car chase? That's just one of the new ways automakers are luring you into the showroom to check out their new models, or at least make you more aware of their brand.

Jaguar doesn't have the production volume or the advertising budget of the big guys from Detroit, Germany, Korea, and Japan, so it's geared up social media and virtual reality to spread the message of the brand's revitalization. It must be working. Bloomberg calls Jaguar "the hottest car company in the U.S." right now, for its hot new models including the new XE compact sport sedan and F-Pace SUV.
