The expert editors from Kelley Blue Book's website have just named the 2013 10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000.

While many inexpensive cars are decidedly uncool, the world's auto manufacturers are putting more personality and distinction into their lower-priced offerings. Not only have small cars never looked so good, but they also have never been more filled with cool content.

Two criteria - fun-to-drive and fun-to-own - are critical among the deciding factors of what the editors freely admit is a very subjective "cool factor," the over-arching number-one criterion for a vehicle to place on this list. Each vehicle is available for purchase at $18,000 or less.

  1. Hyundai Veloster
  2. Ford Focus
  3. Kia Soul
  4. Honda Fit
  5. Dodge Dart
  6. Mazda MAZDA3
  7. FIAT 500
  8. Volkswagon Jetta
  9. Honda Civic
  10. Chevrolet Spark

See the reasoning behind the rankings.
