6 cheap cars with killer sound systems

2012 Ford Focus Titanium Sedan

Price: $22,995

Audio Upgrade: $0

Total Price: $22,995

We think the four-door 2012 Ford Focus Titanium's sound system is the best deal on our list.

Titanium is the top-of-the-line Focus, costing $1,900 more than the more popular Focus SEL. But that extra cash translates into a ton of technology.

The SEL's six-speaker audio system with CD player has speed-sensitive volume control, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and USB port with iPod interface.

Stepping up to the Titanium automatically adds a teeth-rattling Sony-infused system with 10 speakers — including one subwoofer — HD radio and Sirius satellite radio capability with six months' free service.

Among other Titanium upgrades like keyless ignition are MyFord Touch with an eight-inch touch screen providing fingertip oversight of all the car's key systems, SYNC that integrates your personal devices and Wi-Fi capability.

It's a total technology package fit for a $70,000 luxury sedan.
