The Most Fun Cars in an Affordable Range

Has owning a car been your childhood dream? That powerful feeling of controlling a machine, the liberation and exhilaration of holding the steering, or the gradual familiarity of the roads passing by, do these excite you? Or do you just need a carto get around in the city more conveniently? Whatever be your reason, we think nothing should stop you from buying a car if you want one, definitely not budget constraints! Below is a list of the best cars in an affordable range that are guaranteed to give you the fun and carefree feel of a drive without burning a hole in your pocket:
  1. Nissan Versa Note S: Priced at a humble $17000, this hatchback version of the Versa sedan comes with its own interior and exterior styling, which is way superior than its sedan forerunner. Its 109-hp, 1.6-liter inline-four-cylinder engine is same as that of the Versa sedan, but it lacks the manual transmission that the sedan is equipped with. Instead, it has a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Overall, this is quite a good option if you had your eyes set on the Versa sedan but are on a budget.
  2. Mitsubishi Mirage ES: Trust the Japanese to turn out high quality cars at affordable rates. This hatchback version of the Mirage sedan is priced at a cool $1000 less than the sedan version. yet it receives the same new standard equipment for 2019 as does its four-door sibling. As far as internal features are concerned, this hatchback has the same standard cruise control, silver interior stitching, and height-adjustable driver’s seat. So even if you are not in the budget to buy a Japanese sedan, rest assured, this beauty will give you the exact same feel.
  3. Chevrolet Spark LS: This hatchback is easily one of the best options under the $15000 mark. In 2019, Chevrolet spruced up the microcar by giving it a new front-end look and some additional features. Now even the base LS now comes with daylight running lamps and 15-inch aluminium wheels. With its standard 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, 10 airbags, and two USB ports, it offers unparalleled safety and passenger experience. The 98-hp four-cylinder engine is paired with a five-speed manual transmission which makes for a fun driving experience. For all these upgraded features, we are definitely not complaining about the price hike from the $14000 mark. 
  4. Toyota Yaris L Sedan: Moving on to sedans, this is arguably one of the best budget options out there. At a humble 17k, this subcompact has retained its quality over the years and is now available in three trim levels: L, LE, and XLE. The quality of interior designing is good enough to give the feel of a high-end car. The base L is cheaper than last year’s single Yaris iA trim and includes all the cool features such as power windows and mirrors, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, push-button start, remote keyless entry, and even automated emergency braking. Equipped with a manual transmission, it makes for a fun drive.
  5. Ford Fiesta S Sedan: Keeping up with the most affordable sedans, the Fiesta 2019 is sure to grab your attention. This beauty gives great fuel average and comes with an option of a standard five-speed manual or available automatic transmission. Priced at a decent $14000, this is a great option for college students or anyone looking for a good car on a budget. If you can stretch your budget to the higher-end ST trim, it includes a host of performance options, including a more powerful engine, aluminium wheels, high-performance tires and brakes, and a centre aerofoil. It also comes with interior options on all trims include the SYNC3 entertainment system and heated leather seats, making the money spent well worth it.
These were our favourite car from the budget-friendly category. We hope you found yours from this list, and if you did, go take that test drive!
