Believe it or not, there are some people out there who are just interested in a car that will take them from point A to point B. They are only partially interested in horsepower, luxury or the car brand. Their budget is their first and sometimes their only criteria. If you are such a person, then you are at the right place. Car Zing has analyzed the best options from various renowned automakers and completed an article that allows you to save that extra buck while on the road. Let’s dive right in.
1. KIA Soul
You might have seen the KIA Soul quite a number of times in the city. It is one of the popular choices for the cost conscious car owners. Despite its small size, its owners can testify that the manufacturers hid quite some power in the engine. This comes quite handy in hilly or undulating landscape. The Kia Soul allows you some 147 horsepower that will have you racing past some of your much pricier colleagues. KIA did a bit of tweaking when it comes to the Soul’s cargo capacity. With folded rear seats, the car boasts some estimated 62 cubic feet of space.
2. Honda Fit
Over the years, Honda have enjoyed substantial sales with the Honda Fit and thus remodeling it a couple of times to increase its visual appeal and appeal to a greater client base. At its low budget friendly price, there are few hatchbacks longer than the Honda Fit. If you fancy a trip across state lines, the Fit has substantial space at the back. In addition, you can collapse the rear seats to get 52.7 cubic feet of volume. Just imagine.
Not only is the Honda Fit good to look at but also has significant leg room. The car can comfortably fit five tall people, ranking first among many subcompact cars in that department.
3. Nissan Versa
For those drivers who want a more traditional car, this sedan ticks that checkbox while still being a cheap option. The current model of the Versa comes only as a sedan and allows you some advanced features such as its fuel economy amenities and emergency braking system. It is longer and more fuel efficient than its predecessors while still offering a substantial 122 horsepower. Nothing to write home about but it will keep you from being pulled over by the cops for over speeding. Car Zing can attest to its smooth ride and splendidly quiet engine on the freeways.
4. Hyundai Elantra
Hyundai engineers were thinking of an all round efficient and low-cost vehicle when they made the Elantra. Once you have this compact car in your garage, you can be assured of its great fuel economy feature on both long and short trips. It might not offer you a rush to the head, but that’s not what brought Car Zing’s attention to it. Its additional appealing features are in its comfortable ride, stylish and trendy interior, and ample legroom.
