Is it possible to find a car that offers both? It is if you are willing to spend up to $25,000 on a new car. In fact, there are many new sedans in that price range that offer a good ride, handling, fuel efficiency, features, value and yes, even a touch of luxury.

How do you know where to start looking? The editors at Kelley Blue Book recently rated the top 10 sedans under $25,000.
