The Cheapest Cars You Can Buy Right Now! (Top 10)

X) 2021 Nissan Sentra

Yellow 2021 Nissan Sentra: 10th Cheapest
The 2021 Nissan Sentra being a relatively cheap car, has a stronger engine than the previous generation, acceleration is merely OK, and its unrefined transmission further hinders performance. Inside, tight rear headroom, some blasé tech features, and an undersized trunk detract from what’s otherwise a decently upscale cabin for the price.
Price: $19,410 – $21,750 MSRP

XI) 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer

Red 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer: 9th Cheapest
for the price, the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer offers an upscale and spacious interior, a user-friendly infotainment system, and a wide array of standard features like Apple CarPlay, forward collision warning, and lane keep assist. It’s a nimble SUV that’s easy to squeeze into tight parking spots and scoot along city streets, and its three-cylinder engine nets good fuel economy. That said, the Trailblazer’s appeal is dulled by its tepid acceleration and jittery ride quality on rough roads.
Price: $19,000 – $26,900 MSRP

VIII) 2021 Volkswagen Jetta

Orange 2021 Volkswagen Jetta: 8th Cheapest
The 2021 Volkswagen Jetta offers a lot of passenger room for a vehicle of this size, as well as intuitive infotainment features and great fuel economy. Years ago, that would have been enough to make this Volkswagen very competitive in the class. Now, the highest-ranking compact cars deliver agile handling, peppy acceleration, and interior quality that borders on luxury. The Jetta falters in those areas.
Price: $18,995 – $31,545 MSRP

VII) 2021 Hyundai Veloster

Orange 2021 Hyundai Veloster: 7th Cheapest
Even though its a rather cheap car, the 2021 Hyundai Veloster is agile and fun to drive, even more so if you skip the unimpressive base engine for a more thrilling turbocharged power plant. For the right buyer, those performance chops should outweigh its subpar fuel economy. Inside, you’re greeted with a straightforward infotainment system and a nice-looking cabin. While this hatchback doles out more cargo space than sedans in the segment, it’s a little less roomy than its hatchback classmates.
Price: $18,900 – $28,450 MSRP

VI) 2021 Subaru Impreza

Blue 2021 Subaru Impreza; 6th Cheapest
The 2021 Subaru Impreza’s somewhat sporty and boasts an intuitive infotainment system and plenty of passenger space. Another plus is the Impreza’s standard all-wheel drive, which is rare even as an option in this class. With a continuously variable automatic transmission, the Impreza offers great fuel economy too. However, its lackluster acceleration may give some shoppers pause.
Price: $18,795 – $26,395 MSRP

V) 2021 Hyundai Venue

Red 2021 Hyundai Venue: 5th Cheapest
The 2021 Hyundai Venue has a firm but comfortable ride and gets good gas mileage. Inside, it looks good and has reasonably spacious seats, and its infotainment system is easier to use than many rival systems. Still the Venue isn’t a perfect vehicle. Its engine isn’t that powerful, and even by small crossover standards, the Venue has hardly any cargo space.
Price: $18,750 – $22,050 MSRP

IV) 2021 Kia Forte

Blue 2021 Kia Forte; 4th Cheapest
The 2021 Kia Forte has a roomy cabin with high-quality materials, adult-friendly seating, and a user-friendly infotainment system. This Kia also comes with a generous number of standard features, especially considering its low price point. Fuel economy is good in the base model, and a performance-enhanced Forte GT model is available.
Price: $17,890 – $23,290 MSRP

III) 2021 Kia Soul

Red 2021 Kia Soul: 3rd Cheapest
Inside the 2021 Kia Soul, there’s adult-friendly seating in both rows, generous cargo space, and a wealth of optional features. The Soul isn’t as fun to drive as competitors like the Mazda CX-3, but its ride is fairly smooth. The Soul also carries a lengthy warranty. However, this Kia doesn’t have as many soft-touch surfaces as some classmates.
Price: $17,490 – $27,550 MSRP

II) 2021 Hyundai Accent

Red 2021 Hyundai Accent: 2nd Cheapest
The 2021 Hyundai Accent’s attractive cabin and standard tech features explain its low price point. The Accent also boasts above-average fuel economy estimates along with adult-friendly rear seats. However, cargo space is lacking compared to most class rivals, and the ride can be uneven over potholes and bumps in the road.
Price: $15,395 – $19,500 MSRP

I) 2021 Chevrolet Spark

Blue 2021 Chevrolet Spark: Most Cheap
There’s a lot to like about the 2021 Chevrolet Spark. Its small size and easy maneuverability make it well-suited to city driving, though it can feel underpowered and unrefined at higher speeds. Being the cheapest car of the bunch, this Chevy carries a solid predicted reliability rating. However despite being a hatchback, the Spark doesn’t have much cargo space.
Price: $13,400 – $17,900 MSRP
