Kelley Blue Book’s ( named the 2015 Jeep® Renegade and 2015 Fiat 500 as picks for this year’s "10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000."

The all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade makes its debut on the "10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000" list. Kelley Blue Book’s editors said of the Jeep Renegade: "We all know that the Jeep brand has a cool factor that distances it from most auto brands out there, and the new Jeep Renegade takes that and runs with it. Not only does it deliver a buffet of desirable Jeep attributes – unmistakable design, superior off-road credentials, intrinsic grittiness – but it delivers this in a package that is also sensible for everyday commuting. Renegade owners won’t scale a mountain every day … but they could."

This marks the fifth year in row that the Fiat 500 has earned a spot on Kelley Blue Book’s "10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000" list.

Kelly Blue Book editors said of the 2015 Fiat 500: “The Fiat 500 was a consensus pick for our 10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000, because we think it offers more personality per dollar spent than any other vehicle on the American market. If a sophisticated European attitude is something that you’d like to express in your personal transportation, the Fiat 500 is all of that. Charmingly retro and aggressively modern at the same time, it is a poster child for cool.”
