Who’s cooler: Jay Z or Dave Grohl? Clearly your answer depends on your music exposure and tastes, your peer group, your definition of cool and a variety of other factors. Far easier and perhaps more useful is to simply agree they’re two of the most admired figures in music. So it goes with our list of the 5 Coolest Cars Under $25,000. If you think the number five car on this list has a higher cool factor than number 1, that’s cool with us. But each of them is among the most fun, stylish or just plain desirable new cars you can buy for less than $25,000 according to Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price and our new-car classified listings.
