With base prices as low as $14,095, there are still new and affordable sedans and hatchbacks to fit many budgets.
5. 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 – $15,925
Meet the Mirage G4, it’s a very basic sedan with room for five. A hatchback version is also available. A 7.0-inch touchscreen display and Bluetooth capability are standard, but to get a driver’s-seat armrest, Apple Carplay, Android Auto, and Apple Carplay will cost you $2700. It’s not remotely fast, but affordability and speed rarely cross paths. All Mirages are covered by an impressive 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile new vehicle warranty, a 7-year 100,000-mile anti-corrosion warranty, and 5 years of roadside assistance
2. 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage Hatchback – $14,790
The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage is real cheap. It’s one of the least expensive ways to get remote keyless entry and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth capability. It’s a tiny car, with an equally small price. Provided you don’t ask too much of its 78-hp 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine, it’ll return an EPA combined figure of 39 mpg. That’s good enough to make our list of most-efficient non-hybrid, non-electric cars. When you need to commute in a new car for very little money, the Mirage checks all the boxes
1. 2019 Chevrolet Spark Hatchback – $14,095
Refreshed for 2019, the Chevy Spark hatchback in LS form goes for less than some colleges charge students for a semester of general studies. And while the Spark is value leader, its compact size doesn’t leave much space inside for passengers. The base LS is now equipped with daytime running lamps, 15-inch wheels, a 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality. Its little 1.4-liter inline-four gets an EPA-rated 38 mpg on the highway when paired with the CVT automatic. Stretching each gallon is all part of the Spark’s value play.
