Hot New Cars On The Market That Won't Break The Bank

Get a great car that you can afford on your budget!

Choosing between a brand new car and a used one is a complicated decision. If you don't want to worry about maintenance and breakdowns, buying new is the obvious choice. You might think you can't afford a new car, but that's hardly true. There are plenty of cars to choose from, and you'll get the same warranties and perks as the more expensive models. Here's three stylish and affordable new cars you should consider:

The 2014 Honda CR-Z

For all the car nerds and technology geeks, the CR-Z is the perfect new car. For enthusiasts, it has a six-speed gearbox connected to a 130 horsepower hybrid power plant—and a booming 160 watt sound system. And, on top of that power it has a special "S+" button that gives you an extra boost when you want it. For penny pinchers, the hybrid power plant gives you 36 city and 39 highway mpg (with the automatic CVT transmission.)

The interior has gizmos you'd expect on a more expensive car, like a touch screen display, automatic climate control and steering wheel mounted controls. Traction control and front/side airbags are standard, as is a rearview camera display. The CRZ starts at $19,995 for the manual and $20,645 for the automatic.

The 2014 Hyundai Veloster

The Veloster is Hyundai's sexy little hot-hatch secret. While the base model starts at $17,800, we'll look at the $21,300 Veloster Turbo R-Spec (since a turbocharger makes any car more fun to drive.) In the Volester, the turbo adds 63 more horsepower to the 1.6 liter 4-cylinder engine in the base model. And, it doesn't hurt the fuel mileage—the R-Spec gets a combined city/highway average of 28 mpg. This Hyundai is available locally around the nation, even at Findlay Auto Kia, who also sells Hyundai vehicles.

Like the Honda, the Hyundai has electronic stability and traction control. It also has a rear-view camera, brake assist and front and side impact airbags.

The 2014 Toyota Corolla

Finally, for the conservative buyer, the Toyota Corolla L can be had at a starting price of $16,800. For that price you get a competent compact car that gets a combined 31 mpg. Even with it's low price, Toyota didn't skimp on accessories. The Corolla has steering wheel controls, a back up camera and a USB port for connecting tunes.

As you can see, you can get a lot of car these days for a little money, so don't be scared to take a look at new cars when you're looking for a new ride.
