The Nissan Versa is a competent and capacious car in any trim, and even people with no criterion but price of entry might be a bit shocked at how little a base Versa includes. Both the engine (1.6 liters) and the wheels (14 inches) are smaller on the ultra-cheap 1.6 than they are on other Versas. It has no ABS and no power locks, mirrors, or windows. Not even a radio is standard. The transmission is manual, Nissan skimps on the seat padding, and even the clock is gone. If all you want is cheap, then all you get is this. It’s still not a bad package, but if you want the cheapest car possible, for goodness’ sake, buy used.

The new Spark has traded its cute-and-cuddly styling for a more mature look, and with its high-quality interior and quiet ride, the Spark drives like a bigger and more expensive car. It helps that Chevrolet has fitted a bigger and more powerful engine, and yet the Spark’s EPA fuel economy estimates are slightly higher than the old car. There’s a long list of options, including pricey features like a lane-departure and collision warning systems, though such extravagances raise the price. Back seat and trunk space remain cramped, so the Chevrolet Spark is still best for singles and couples. The Spark may not be the value it once was, but if you want an affordable car that doesn’t feel cheap, the Spark is a great choice.

A funny thing happened to the cheapest brand new cars a few years ago: they got really, really good. For the most part, electing to spend $15,000 or less on a new vehicle gets you a surprisingly high quality automobile compared to the same price point just 10 years ago. Gone are the badge-engineered jalopies sitting in the lineup to keep up appearances and to serve as loss-leaders, and in their place are a fleet of fuel-efficient, occasionally stylish, and almost universally competent entry-level rides. Sure, each of the automobiles on this list is on the small side, but that’s what many budget-conscious buyers are looking for – a car that is cheap to buy, cheap to operate, and easy to drive in a city setting. Let’s take a look at 10 of the cheapest brand new cars currently available in the United States.

The Nissan Versa sedan has been the least-expensive new car for a number of years now, but it’s also the best value on this list. Cheap as it is, the Versa is a roomy four-door sedan with nearly as much interior space as a mid-size car like the Kia Optima — and for a little more than half the price.

The Mitsubishi Mirage a car that takes this whole cheap-wheels thing seriously. The price includes air conditioning, power windows and power locks. Even with all the optional goodies (alloy wheels, push-button ignition, and navigation), it's still $1,500 cheaper than a comparably equipped Nissan Versa. The 3-cylinder engine delivers an honest 40 MPG in day-to-day driving. The Mirage is covered by an epic warranty, with 5 years or 60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage and 10 years/100,000 miles on the powertrain. On the downside, the Mirage is noisy, slow, and an unpleasant companion on long road ​trips. It's not an outstanding car, but for inexpensive motoring, this vehicle is hard to beat.

The Kia Soul has long been a favorite cheap car, although with the price having crept up by $1,020 over the past two years, it's not the bargain it once was. The Kia Soul offers cutting-edge styling and a long list of standard equipment (A/C, power everything, cruise control alloy wheels, tinted side windows, and an iPod-compatible stereo with satellite radio. The 2014 redesign improved the ride and handling to the point that it drives like a much more expensive car.

The Tata Nano is a compact and nice Indian-based city car. It was launched in 2008 and cost about $2,000. It was aimed at Indian motorcycle drivers, who were expected to replace their motorcycles with Tata Nano. In 2012 its cost was leveled up, though it still remains cheap and has a nickname ‘one-lakh car’.

Rule 1: The mainstream car has to be good. If you're a luxury brand, you can't go mainstream with a piece of crap. I can think of two examples where luxury brands did this, and both failed miserably. The first is the Cadillac Cimarron, which was a rebadged Chevy Cavalier they tried to force on people in the '80s. This car was so awful that it singlehandedly destroyed Cadillac's reputation to the point where the only people who wouldn't put up a fight when you made them get in a Cadillac were riding in back, in a coffin.

The largest producers and exporters of cheap cars are such Asian countries as China, India, South Korea and Thailand. They aim mostly at Asian market, have cheap labor and find cost-cutting measures. All that allows the manufacturers to have the lowest prices.

The $7,700 car could have something good for an economic ride. What you want? Tech or performance or just the economy? Sandero is just an economy package. The 1.2 L gasoline engine is although an engine but it’s fine enough to have some savings. It’s a good family car, but never – the – less, it’s not a performance car. Take a trip, but not a track.
