What's a good sedan under $17,000?

Asked by Cathy

I'm looking at buying a 2013-2016 medium-sized car with low km for under $17,000. I really like the Holden Cruze, Mazda3 and Hyundai Elantra, but I also like the Toyota Corolla hatch. I've been told the Cruze lacks get up and go and the Mazda3 is the way to go. I just want a medium-sized car/sedan with some guts. Are you able to advise me which way I should go, or suggest another type of car?

I wouldn’t recommend the Cruze, there have been too many problems with them. The Toyota Corolla, Mazda3 and Hyundai Elantra are all good, reliable cars with plenty of performance for the class. Any one of them would be a good choice.
