The Right Car for Me | TrueDelta


Greetings. I am looking for a car with:-manual transmission
-decent sound system with aux. input
-intuitively-designed interior
-sports suspension
-regular dashboard controls, I don't want a touchscreen, GPS, bluetooth, 4G, or any of that noise.

I'm very much a form-follows-function kind of guy, so how a car looks isn't super important to me. I'd appreciate a few suggestions so I can do my homework before I dive into the shark tank. Thanks!

Preferred Bodystyle(s): Coupe

Need minimum of 5 seats

Will consider both new and used cars
Maximum mileage: 35000
Maximum age: 2 years

Maximum price: US $ 2250

Is that maximum price missing a zero?

Ford Focus SE with the Sport Package and no other options. It'll have Bluetooth--most nearly new cars will--but no MyFord Touch. A used 2013 will be far below $22,500. Even a new one will be well below $22,500 after discounts and incentives.

I'd like to suggest a base 2015 VW Golf, but even the S has a touchscreen. If you decide you can accept that, it's a great car.

A Hyundai Elantra GT doesn't handle as well as the Focus or Golf, but might still be to your liking. The 2014 and up have a reasonably strong engine. Steering weight is selectable via a button on the steering wheel.

What do you think of these? Maybe you want something larger, more powerful, etc.?
