Although the advice offered on many blogs and from other sources for those of you on a tight budget looking to invest in a car will be to buy used, does that mean you can’t buy new if you really want to? Of course, it doesn’t. In the following post, we are going to look at some of the best new cars of 2020 that will suit the budget-conscious.
Chevrolet Spark Hatchback 2020
One of the cheapest new cars available in 2020 now is the Chevrolet Spark. Although it does mean you only get a meager 1.4l inline4 capable of 98 horsepower, this is still a bargain of an automobile. Some of the standard features include the OnStar connectivity suite that can work with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, while the small engine still achieves an estimated EPA of around 29 miles to the gallon through the city and 38 on the highway.
Nissan Versa 2020
Although the Nissan Versa used to be one of the cheapest cars on the market, it has gone up in price point in recent years. However, it is with good reason. For one thing, you get the benefit of a meaty 1.6l I4 engine which produces 122-horsepower with 114lb-ft of torque, making it a reasonably powerful car compared to many at the same price point. While it’s true that the car comes as a manual, there are a lot of intriguing special features that come as standard. Including the 7-inch touchscreen display and 3 USB ports, lane-departure warning and automatic emergency braking technology.
Hyundai Accent Sedan 2020
The Accent Sedan is the smallest automobile produced by Hyundai over here, and as such, the price tag is also smaller than other models. Don’t let the low price fool you though, as it still benefits in all three new trims of the car, from a 1.6l I4 that produces a respectable 120-horsepower with 113lb-ft of torque that is routed into the six-speed manual transmission that comes as standard. Also standard with this model is a high-quality 5-inch touchscreen display and USB port, steering wheel controls and powered windows. It also performs well in the fuel efficiency side of things with an estimated EPA of 29 mpg through the city and 39 mpg on highways.
Honda Fit 2019
As the new 2020 Honda Fit is having a redesign, you could find that the 2019 model is available for a very reasonable price. While it looks like a very small car from the exterior, the interior is a lot roomier and more open than you may think. To get the benefit of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay you will need to upgrade, as is the case if you are looking to take advantage of automatic emergency braking and want to be able to open the doors without the use of a key.
Considering how reliable a model it is though, some of the major sacrifices that come with getting the standard model are worth it, as are the extra expenses required for the upgrades.
