Coolest 2013 under $18,000: Hyundai Veloster
Fair purchase price: $17,328
The sporty Veloster shows how far Hyundai has come from the days when it only made boring budget models such as the Excel.
The Veloster features a one-of-a-kind design: two front doors and a rear door on the passenger's side only. There's no rear door on the driver's side."The Veloster's exterior styling is certainly an attention grabber," Nerad says. "The fact that it's only got three doors is very unusual."
