Sedans Starting Under $30K

Best Sedans according to our experts

01.
Kia Cerato
From
$24,975
7/10
From
$24,975

The Kia Cerato S is worth considering if you want a decent amount of space at a competitive price tag, the ownership options are great but is it a good alternative for your family? Or should you spend more to get a higher spec version of this hatch?


02.
Toyota Corolla
From
$29,270
8.2/10
From
$29,270

Flying under the radar relative to its ever‑popular hatch sibling, the Toyota Corolla sedan offers some interesting advantages. And in entry‑level Ascent Sport Hybrid guise, the practicality/efficiency equation is kicked up a notch or two. We've spent a week with this intriguing combination to see if you should be thinking four doors rather than five for your next small car purchase.


03.
Hyundai Elantra
From
$18,888
7.4/10
From
$18,888

Hyundai has overhauled its Elantra range, and that means a fresh (and polarising) look and interesting new trim levels. So is it worthy of your attention?


04.
Mazda 3
From
$0
8.5/10
From
$0

Now half a decade old, the current Mazda 3 range has not only aged well, but has undergone a consistent stream of improvements to help keep the Japanese small car stalwart fresh. Key changes for 2024 include updated multimedia and functionality upgrades, but the real story is just how competitive ‑ as well as premium ‑ the higher‑end grades like the G25 Evolve SP feel. Premium sums it up nicely.


05.
Subaru Impreza
From
$31,490
7.1/10
From
$31,490

The Impreza nameplate is largely responsible for making Subaru a global household name, but what does it bring to the table in 2024?
