Default coolest front wheel drive car?

So ive changed my mind many times deciding which car I want.
I've finally made my decision.
I am going to get somthing cool for the summer, and somthing less cool in the winter.
Since winter is comming up pretty quick, I need to get my first car.

Does anyone have any good sugestions for a fairly cheap winter front wheel drive car that doesn't look nerdy and looks at least slightly cool, that isn't to expensive used (like on craigslist) either?
thanks!

Civic indeed.

If you want something bigger and faster, a late 90s/early 2000s Grand Prix/Impala/Regal/etc with the 3800 V6 will also do the trick well.

Are you seriously buying your FIRST car based on cool factor?

Be smart. Get something that will last and hold it's value, then when you have more money get something "cool".

96-00 Civic.. cheap, reliable as all hell, easy on gas, cheap to insure, cheap parts, easy to work on, and actually kinda fun to drive (As long as you get a 5 speed, automatic Civics are boring). Can't forget they handle pretty well too
