When reviewing the 10 Best SUVs Under $25,000, editors at said of the 2015 Jeep Renegade, “Jeep's entry-level newcomer has been attracting attention with its charming, retro-modern looks, but it has a lot more to offer than style. The Renegade allows open-air driving, similar to its big-brother Wrangler, and the nimble compact is comfortable on the road, fuel efficient and capable of venturing off-road.”

Earning a spot on the 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000, the 2015 Chrysler 200 also received praise from editors.

“Chrysler's all-new stylish 200 comes onto the midsize sedan scene for 2015 with an elegant interior filled with plenty of appealing connectivity and entertainment options,” editors said. “That, along with the car's quiet, smooth ride makes this an enjoyable highway cruiser.”
In addition to being named one of the 10 Best SUVs under $25,000, the 2015 Jeep Wrangler was also chosen as one of’s 10 Coolest Cars Under $25,000.

“For those souls more likely to blaze their own path than play follow the leader down a paved, well-worn strip of asphalt, the open-air, open-mind Jeep Wrangler is legendary for a reason,” editors said.

The 2015 Fiat 500 Abarth also received accolades from editors, making the list of 10 Coolest Cars Under $25,000.

“The Fiat 500 is a style-conscious small car with European flair,” editors said. “But with the addition of a turbocharger and a sport suspension, Fiat's little runabout turns into a little monster.”
