James Raia

Perhaps the most competitive price point in the car industry is the available of quality cars — sedans, sports cars, sport utility vehicles and crossovers — for less than $25,000. It’s particularly impressive since the average price of a new car in the United States in recent years has hovered around $32,000.

Competition is increasingly intense. Whether you’re considering a luxury vehicle or a moderately priced car, there’s an abundance of choices as carmakers try to outdo each other.


The 2017 Toyota Camry is among the best cars for less than $25,000.
