I'm 19, a beginner driver. I want a sedan or a hatchback (if it's spacious) with a hard metal body, preferably a Japanese car within a $18-27k. Looks are not everything to me, however, if there is a car that fits these qualifications and does look good, please let me know! I really don't know anything about cars but I do need something safe, spacious and has a metal exterior instead of plastic. Thank you!

Within that price range, the most popular choices for sedans --- among younger people with no children that they have to transport around --- are the cars within the "compact car" size of vehicles. And for Japanese cars, popular and usually-reliable choices are made by the companies Toyota, Honda, Mazda, etc.
Each car company usually has one car, within its compact-car segment, to sell under its name.
Toyota makes the Toyota Corolla:
Honda makes the Honda Civic:
Mazda makes the Mazda 3:
There are also other Japanese companies who make sedans: like Nissan (with the Nissan Sentra), Subaru (with the Subaru Impreza), and Mitsubishi (with the Mitsubishi Lancer).
However, the 3 pictures I provided are the ones that I see more people driving. You should of course do your own research into each car; look at things like reviews on RELIABILITY, gas mileage, horsepower, handling, etc. And then pick the one that gives you the best deal, considering everything. :)3

It sounds like you should go look at some cars and get some insurance quotes.0
