U.S. News: The Cheapest Cars of 2020

The thought of purchasing a new ride can inspire feelings of sheer excitement. Not always, though. There are many who shy away from new car purchasing because of the price tag associated with buying something fresh off the lot. But these three new cars are the cheapest cars of 2020.

According to this list on U.S. News, some new cars are pretty cheap. In fact, rolling away in a brand new car may be more within reach than you think. As long as you don’t care too much for luxury or drivetrain upgrades, you can get a new car, like these three hatchbacks, for under $15,000 –– without even searching that far.

The Ford Fiesta

The 2019 Ford Fiesta is a nimble little hatchback. It is a great contender on the market and boasts some pretty good standard features for the price. With the low starting price point of only $14,260, the Fiesta is one of today’s cheapest cars you can buy.

It sports an easy handle and a decent driving experience. Its technology features are great, too. The base model comes equipped with bluetooth and a voice activated system, as well as a rearview camera. The 4.2 inch display can be upgraded to a 7 inch option compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. But it’ll cost some extra cash.

The Mitsubishi Mirage

This is another hatchback that will set you back less than 15 grand. It’s definitely basic as far as options and details go. Good news is that as of its 2019 model, the Mitsubishi Mirage does come standard with cruise control.

Offered for the low price of $13, 795, the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage also has a standard rearview camera. This one will seat 5 people and has high fuel efficiency –– in a new Mirage you can expect 35 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway. Another plus to this simple driver is its roomy trunk with 12.3 cubic feet of cargo space.

The Chevrolet Spark

The 2020 Chevy Spark tops the list. This hatchback is the cheapest car of the year. It’s a four seater with good comfort for the money. The Spark boasts a pretty high-tech standard infotainment system for a car that only costs $13,220.

The 7 inch touch screen on this affordable and agile little city car is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The WiFi hot spot boosts the usability of this system equipped with bluetooth and a voice command setup. A standard rearview camera is the cherry on top of this cheap new car option offered by Chevrolet.

The Cheapest Cars of 2020

These are the top three cheapest cars of 2020 from the list compiled by U.S. News. All three can be bought for under 15 grand. In some ways you get what you pay for, but in others the money stretches pretty far.

Regardless, for anyone who thinks a brand new car is too expensive, these hatchbacks may be the answer. For as low as the Chevy Spark price point of $13,220, you can drive off the lot in a shiny new hatchback.

The Ford Fiesta and the Mitsubishi Mirage are the other two most competitively priced hatchbacks. It’s hard to say which is the most bang for your buck since they are all priced so low. One thing is certain. Of all the cars on the market these are the cheapest cars of 2020.
