Hyundai Venue has rightly taken the top spot among the most affordable cars on our list, starting at just $19,000.

The plus of this car is that it does not lack space, even as the cheapest car. It is a 5-seater car that can deliver 29 MPG (or miles per gallon) and 33 MPG in the city and on the highway, respectively.

Other specifications of the car are 121 hp and front-wheel drive. The interior of the car is not the best quality, but it is still satisfactory. The interior is generally good and an infotainment system has been installed so you don’t get bored on short trips.

One thing to keep in mind is that it is not recommended for long car journeys as the 1.6 liter engine can cause some discomfort. But it’s ideal for runabouts, plus the point here are the large windows that allow you to enjoy the view to the fullest.

2. Nissan kicks

The car is a 5-seater with plenty of cargo space and can offer 31 MPG and 36 MPG respectively in the city and on the highway. One thing to note is that it is very economical so very appealing to people who travel often.

The starting price of Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is $21,795. The car has an attractive design and a good load space. The engine isn’t as fuel efficient, but the great 10-year/100,000-mile warranty makes up for that.

This car, like the rest, is a 5-seater. The car offers 23 and 29 MPG in the city and on the highway, respectively. Lane Keep Assist, Alarm, Brake Assist, Remote Keyless Entry along with infotainment system and Apple CarPlay are some of the features that this car can offer.

Mitsubishi’s engine, rated at 148 hp and a 2.0 liter four-cylinder, can be noisy while working. Therefore, the journey is not so satisfying and comfortable.
