2024 is on the up and up, especially for brand-spanking-new affordable cars. Here's a list of our top 5 in case you're in the market to buy one and sell your old car for free.

At a price tag of $25,045, the base model screams bang for your buck if you can live with its 2.0-liter engine and 158 horsepower. We’re talking 0 to 60 in 9.2 seconds. It does pack some heat with a ton of safety features and 40 mpg on the highway. It's less fast and furious and more fuel-efficient and fortified.

Weighing in at $22,995, this puppy combines impressive interior space with solid safety ratings. It's noticeably quicker than other 2.0-liter base model compact cars, thanks in large part to its lighter weight. If good looks and reliability are what you are after, then look no further than the entry-level Corolla.

At a whopping $17,405, this car is the definition of "basic!" Its fuel economy isn't bad, the ride is somewhat comfortable, and quick isn't in its vocabulary. But it has tons of cargo space for its size and stout safety features. It's a solid option at the lowest price on the market.

For only $22,775, it could easily trade blows with the Civic and Corolla for less. Spacious, fuel-sipping, and a 2024 IIHS Top Safety Pick. It has a leg up on features over similarly priced rivals.

2024 Ford Mustang EcoBoost

To the tune of $32,515, it's easy to forget there's also a four-cylinder stallion roaming the range with all the hoopla for V-8 powered hotrods. Like its bigger-engine kin, the new 2.3-liter powertrain has plenty of giddy-up.

Besides affordability, our top 5 car brands have another thing in cahoots. They're very reliable, and we have the receipts to prove it—literally. The most popular cars we bought in 2023 were Hondas, Toyotas, Nissans, and Fords over 10 years old.
