We all want to be driving around in a luxury Bentley or Ferrari but the reality is on a select few of us will ever earn enough to call one of these prestige vehicles our own. That said, there are some car manufacturers who have worked hard to design a sleek and stylish vehicle without the prestige price tag.

Here is our pick of 6 cars that are affordable but also make you look like a boss.

Alfa Romeo Giulietta – $25,000 – $39,150

Perhaps one of the most stylish small cars on the road today, the gorgeous Giulietta is a quality Italian built motorcar at a price that many people can afford. Indeed, it is cheaper than the ever popular VW Golf and comes with an engine with more grunt than the German hatch. The Giulietta is the kind of car you would expect to roll up to a red carpet film premier, and its stunning lines are sure to turn heads on the street.

Audi A1 – $26,500 – $42,500

Stick the famous four ring Audi badge on any car and you should expect a quality vehicle that is elegant and powerful. Indeed, Audi’s smallest on-road model exceeds all expectations. With a 5-star ANCAP safety rating and one of the most economical engines on the road (5.3 litres/100km), the A1 is a certainty for the city driver looking to get the most bang for their buck.

Citroen DS3 – $26,990 – $35,990

The Mini which has dominated the prestige space of the sporty small car market needs to sit up and take notice of the new kid on the block, the new Citroen DS3. With the cabrio version starting at under $30,000, the DS3 is a beautifully crafted car full of French flair with a sporty edge. Complete with iPod connectivity and a zippy 1.6 litre engine, it is the perfect city runabout that will impress all onlookers.

Mazda 3 – $20,490 – $38,190

Sporting a sleek new look that emulates the clean, blow-back lines of a Mercedes or Jaguar, the new Mazda 3 boasts all the features of most European models but at half the price. Such features include being the first “Japanese” mainstream small car to embrace driver assist features like Activesense driver support, radar cruise control and a collision avoidance system.

Indeed, nothing in its price range comes close to style and design. If you are in the market for a new sedan, make sure you mark the new Mazda 3 down for a test drive.

Kia Pro_cee’d GT – $30,000

Scheduled for release in the first half of 2014, the new Kia Pro_cee’d is a head turner. Designed by a Frenchman and engineered in Germany, the Pro_cee’d is perhaps the most European of Kia’s entire range. Some of the design features of the Pro_cee’d include ‘ice cube’ daytime lights and comfortable Recaro seats.

In many ways, the Pro_cee’d gives more established models such as the VW Golf and Renault Megane a run for their money – not only with an affordable price tag but also in style.

Jeep Grand Cherokee – $28,000 – $37,000

Carsguide.com.au calls the new Jeep Cherokee the ‘most polarizing model ever’ and it’s not hard to see why. The traditional seven-slot front grille, which has been a trademark of the Cherokee for decades, has received a complete makeover. Jeep’s design team cited a need for the premier SUV brand to change with the times. “The notion that we were breaking away from previous Cherokee wasn’t really true because we were continuing the same design theme,” said Greg Howell, head designer for Jeep. “But there were a lot of new targets to meet such as fuel economy and aerodynamics. Our research tells us that people want something modern and something versatile because they want to remain SUV owners.” Whether you love or loath the new look, the Cherokee has lost none of its style.
