You’ll be surprised what you can bring home for under 20K. As of this story’s publication date, all the following vehicles were available on CarSoup.com.
Mazda MX-5 Miata Touring – It’s not super powerful at 167 hp with a manual transmission but the driving dynamics are impressive and the handling is athletic and responsive. It’s a great looking car that’s a total blast to drive.
Ford Mustang – Iconic and affordable is a great combination indeed. Mustang has controlled, agile handling through corners, especially in models with the available track pack and if you upgrade from the already adequate 6 cylinder to the V8 or the Supercharged 8 you’ll get the kind of glued-to-your-seat acceleration that’ll put a permanent smile on your face.
Chrysler 200 Limited – Here’s a convertible hard top with style and a touch of class. It’s a nimble handler that’s nicely appointed inside with a larger than average amount of trunk space; there’s even room for a few grocery bags when the top’s down. The back seat is small but that’s common among the class.
Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 – It’s smooth bordering on luxurious. It’s a great road car with beautiful lines and a brilliantly executed interior. It may not be as sporty a handler as other convertibles but if it’s a top-down road trip you’re after the Solara will not disappoint.
Ford Thunderbird – Ford did a great job with this throwback T-bird. There aren’t many on the road so you’ll feel special when you’re driving it. Owners and drivers love the T-Bird’s look, feel and performance.
