Subaru, Mazda, Honda, Great Choices For Just Over $25,000

1 of 9

There’s a lot of competition for daily drivers at the $25,000 price point.

We’ve talked before about the Honda Civic, the Mazda6, and even the Toyota 86.

I don’t know about you guys, but in my spare time, I look at other car manufacturer websites and “build a car.”  I do it often.  It’s fun to daydream about a Porsche 991 GT3 RS and the ridiculous amounts of money just for the options. But, when I drive on the road, I see a lot more newer cars around the $25,000 to $35,000 price point.  Chances are, those are the cars that are actually owned by people, and not just leased BMWs, Mercedes, Audi, Lexus, Acura, Infiniti, and the like.

That price point buys A LOT of car.  Just think of the other cars that are in that general range; a Subaru WRX, Subaru Legacy, Mazda 3, Mazda CX-5, and the Honda Accord.  Sure, that covers a lot of bases, from spacious daily drivers to something more performance oriented, but I’m guessing, you’re far more likely to keep this car for five-to-ten years to get the full benefit of its’ automotive shelf-life.

Here, we’re going through a brief summary to find out which car works best for you.
