9. 2015 Subaru WRX
The powerful WRX starts out at just $26,295, and with that you get a 2.0-liter boxer-four engine with 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, all-wheel drive, a 5.4-second sprint to 60 mph, and room for the family. What more could you ask for? If you’re not up for shifting gears, you can also pick up the Premium trim with the continuously variable transmission for just $28,495. The only downside to the Subaru is that it has a reputation for having shaky build quality that results in rattles and squeaks early into its life.
