Speed for a steal
Speed for a steal

It's an excellent time to be in the market for a fast and fun car. Auto loan rates are low, making it very affordable to finance a new car. And due to improved technology, showrooms are stocked with stylish vehicles that offer solid performance, speed and handling on the cheap.

You can park any of the cars on Bankrate's list in your driveway for less than $20,000, with prices ranging from $15,900 to $19,975. In addition, all of these go from zero to 60 mph in less than nine seconds -- relatively fast considering the price tag. You'll likely lose a drag race against a Ferrari, but you'll merge onto the freeway and take hard corners without a hitch.

These are no slouches in the fuel-efficiency department, either. All these cars post good mpg numbers in the city and on the highway.

That makes these affordable cars not only fast and fun, but practical as well.
