When it comes to cheap, fun cars, buyers have a ton of options. $30,000 can get you a ton of performance and enjoyment in today's market. Which new car do you think provides the most fun for under $30,000?

There's no other car on the market today that provides so much enjoyment behind the wheel at such a reasonable price. Sure, it might not be as practical as your favorite hot hatch, but I think the top down feeling and balanced driving experience is worth it.
Now we'd like to know: Which new car under $30,000 do you think is best? It doesn't have to be a dedicated sports car like the Miata—it could be anything, as long as it's new and under 30 grand. Let us know in the comments below.
