A car from 2006 that still looks modern...

Greetings Opponauts! Welcome to “Car Cazar” a new “feature” where I give you a budget and make up a scenario and you find a vehicle that fits the bill.

Alright let’s get down to business, there’s a man in his late 50s who’s just retired. He’s looking to cast off his groggy Honda Accord and get something sporty. It must be less than 45k be reliable enough do be driven a high amount and should keep its value at least a tiny bit. It should be comfortable enough to be daily driven. It should have a compliant ride as he’s got a bad back. What ya got?
