7. BMW 320i $33,900
The 320i is the most affordable 3 Series in BMW’s lineup, but still sports the basics that make BMW’s so much fun to drive. It features a sporty rear-wheel drive drivetrain layout and an eight-speed automatic transmission. It’s the least powerful 3 Series, making just 180 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque out of its 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine.

Still, it’s not totally stripped down. It features automatic climate control and rain-sensing windshield wipers. And if you’re too embarrassed to show up at the local BMW club-meet because of your bargain-basement priced Bimmer, you can just remove the badges and fit right in.
