Editors at Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com honored four FCA US vehicles with seven “top 10” awards for 2015.
The all-new 2015 Jeep®
Renegade has been named one of KBB.com’s “10 Favorite New-for-2015 Cars” and “10 Best All-Wheel-Drive Vehicles Under $25,000.” The Jeep Renegade and 2015 Jeep Wrangler also made KBB.com’s “10 Best SUVs Under $25,000” list, while the 2015 Chrysler 200 nabbed a spot on the list of “10 Best Sedans Under $25,000.” In addition, KBB.com named the Jeep Wrangler and 2015 Fiat 500 two of its “10 Coolest Cars Under $25,000.”
When reviewing the 10 Best SUVs Under $25,000, editors at KBB.com said of the 2015 Jeep Renegade, “Jeep's entry-level newcomer has been attracting attention with its charming, retro-modern looks, but it has a lot more to offer than style. The Renegade allows open-air driving, similar to its big-brother Wrangler, and the nimble compact is comfortable on the road, fuel efficient and capable of venturing off-road.”
Earning a spot on the 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000, the 2015 Chrysler 200 also received praise from KBB.com editors.
“Chrysler's all-new stylish 200 comes onto the midsize sedan scene for 2015 with an elegant interior filled with plenty of appealing connectivity and entertainment options,” KBB.com editors said. “That, along with the car's quiet, smooth ride makes this an enjoyable highway cruiser.”
In addition to being named one of the 10 Best SUVs under $25,000, the 2015 Jeep Wrangler was also chosen as one of KBB.com’s 10 Coolest Cars Under $25,000.
“For those souls more likely to blaze their own path than play follow the leader down a paved, well-worn strip of asphalt, the open-air, open-mind Jeep Wrangler is legendary for a reason,” KBB.com editors said.
The 2015 Fiat 500 Abarth also received accolades from KBB.com editors, making the list of 10 Coolest Cars Under $25,000.
“The Fiat 500 is a style-conscious small car with European flair,” KBB.com editors said. “But with the addition of a turbocharger and a sport suspension, Fiat's little runabout turns into a little monster.”
