4. 2015 Ford Focus ST
The 2015 model year is certainly a great one for Fords, as the 2015 Focus ST, which starts at just $24,370, is next up on our list. This hot hatch features a 2.0-liter Ecoboost four-cylinder that produces a mighty 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. This engine pairs with a six-speed manual transmission to get it to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds. You can even add in the ST3 Package, which tosses in things like navigation, the leather Recaro seats and heated mirrors, and walk out of the dealership paying only $28,625, plus delivery and taxes.
