Edmunds Editors Name Their Top Picks for Cars and SUVs Under $20,000

The car shopping experts at Edmunds have announced their list of top picks for new and used vehicles under $20,000 to help guide consumers seeking more affordable transportation during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In addition to considering vehicle pricing, Edmunds’ editors put together their list based on a combination of Edmunds’ expert ratings and consumer reviews on Edmunds.
