It is always a wish of any consumer that he buys a any particular product at the cheapest price possible having the features of an expensive one. It happens same when it comes to making a decision to buy a car, the buyer would always look for a car featuring qualities which a luxury car does. Looking for the most affordable car is a difficult task as every year prices change and new models are launched. Therefore, to help you out, I have prepared a list of the top 5 most affordable cars for 2015.
Coming out of the box, let’s browse a range of most affordable cars based on specs, features and most importantly price.
1. Nissan Versa – $11990
Nissan Versa is once again ranked at top among the most affordable cars, as at a low price of $11990, a buyer would get all the basic features he expects to see in a car. The sedan offers a 1.6 liter four-cylinder engine that produces 109 horsepower and is matched with a five speed manual transmission. The car does not provide a superior quality interior but still the sales have not been affected. Nissan Versa Note is one version with a hatchback and is $2000 more than the normal sedan. The only feature it has is more space for cargo and I guess spending more for this is not worth it. Nissan vehicles are, however, liked worldwide but it might be difficult for a resident of Dubai to find out prices of Nissan cars in his region due to the currency differences.
2. Chevrolet Spark – $12270
The Spark carrying the sporty look is a brilliant alternative to Mirage and with a price lower than Mirage, it takes the second position. The sedan is powered by a 1.2 liter four-cylinder engine that produces 84 hp and is driven by a five speed manual transmission. The fuel economy is not that amazing but it does have nice exterior and interior which compensates for the features it lacks. The news is that 2016 Spark would come with Android Auto pre-installed that would certainly enhance the driving experience.
3. Mitsubishi Mirage – $12995
In this car’s case, it is actually getting less for more, the Mirage offers a low fuel economy of 44 mpg on highway. Mirage carries a 1.2 liter three-cylinder engine and produces 74 horsepower which is less than Spark’s. The engine enables the car to reach 60 mph in no longer than 10 seconds, what else could be expected at this low price.
4. Smart ForTwo – $13270
The ForTwo carrying l.0 liter engine and producing 70 hp takes the fourth position among the most affordable cars. It is a car that might fit into one’s pocket due to its small size. A new, redesigned version is expected to be launched in 2016 but we will be riding the 2014 model till it comes out in the market.
5. Kia Rio – $13900
Kia Rio with a price of $13900 resides at the bottom of this list. Unfortunately, the vehicle never enjoyed commercial success the way its competitors Ford, Toyota do, but still, the car offers comparatively a powerful engine that produces 138 horsepower, 29 more than Versa Note. The car features six speed transmission stick, ports for devices, air conditioning and disc brakes.
