Which Budget-Friendly Car Is Right for You?

Whether you’ve got a teenager who needs a car, you have a tight budget, or you just can’t stand the idea of spending a small fortune on something that depreciates as fast as cars do, there is a good chance that at some point you’re going to be looking for a cheap car.

That’s why the auto market is jammed full of small, inexpensive, fuel-efficient cars, all vying for your attention, affection, and dollars.

All these vehicles have their own strategy for achieving that. Some go for pure efficiency, eschewing power and features, some prioritize style and fun, and still others are all about space and practicality.

Some of these cars are cheap and good, some are cheap and pretty, some are just plain cheap. Regardless, these are the cheapest cars on the market today.
