Volkswagen GTI

Volkswagen occupies a strange space in the American automotive landscape.  Many Americans think of it as an alternative to Ford and Toyota, but the German brand often takes aim at more upscale rivals, especially with its fine interiors.  The GTI's standard touch screen stereo, leather-wrapped steering wheel and Bluetooth make it feel like a low-end luxury car -- yet it starts around $23,000.

GMC Terrain

The GMC Terrain feels like a bargain from inside.  Without springing for a single option, you get upscale touches like sliding rear seats, satellite radio and keyless entry.  They aren't cobbled together from cut-rate materials, either.  The switchgear feels substantial, and the dash and center stack have a handsome, thoughtful design. It's easy to drive the price up with options, but even a fairly stripped-down $25,000 Terrain feels like a much more expensive car.

  1. I think you left off the Mazda 3--Like the VW Golf and Jetta, it's one of the nicest budget car interiors for the past few years now and one that most competitors have yet to match at that pricepoint.
