It's time to rank the new 2019 cars that have a starting sticker price under $20,000. From the Chevrolet Cruze to the Kia Rio you'll find both compact and subcompacts on this list. A few of the 2019 models that are under 20K offer both sedan and hatchback body style options such as the Chevrolet Sonic but the Honda Civic is the only car on this list that offers the coupe, sedan, and hatchback body styles. Which of these 2019 cars under 20,000 dollars is right for you?

Look to the descriptions to determine which cars you like best based on their estimated MPG or available horsepower. Shopping for new sedans, coupes, and hatchabcks under $20,000 can be tricky. Help other drivers out by voting up the best cars that are available at a reasonable price.
