On a budget but still looking for a stylish ride? Kelley Blue Book has kindly compiled a helpful list of 2012's 10 coolest cars selling for less than $18,000. We know that price estimates often factor in add-ons and incentive savings, so to keep things simple, for our purposes we're sticking with the starting MSRP (manufacturer's suggested retail price) for each model. Here are Kelley Blue Book's picks:

10. 2012 Volkswagen Jetta ($16,645)

9. 2012 Scion iQ ($15,995)

8. 2012 Kia Soul ($13,900)

7. 2012 Honda Fit ($16,125)

6. 2012 Ford Fiesta ($13,200)

5. 2012 Chevrolet Sonic ($14,765)

4. 2012 Mazda MAZDA3 ($15,200)

3. 2012 Fiat 500 ($15,500)

2. 2012 Hyundai Veloster ($17,450)

1. 2013 Dodge Dart ($15,995)

Readers, do you agree with these picks? Which other models would you have liked to see on this list?
