What Students in Automotive School Need to Know About the Top 3 Most Affordable Cars of 2020
If drivers are looking for something cheap, cheerful and a breeze to drive, these cars might be their ticket. Since these vehicles all have starting MSRPs at the lower end of the five digits, they are not only cost-effective, but also give drivers a fantastic ride that can tick many of the boxes for their automotive needs.
Whichever of these three cars they choose, each have many features and specs that will be certain to give them more bang for their buck. Here’s what you need to know about 2020’s three most affordable cars.
Chevrolet Spark: A Must-Know for Any Automotive School Student
The cheapest car on this list with a starting MSRP of around $9,998, the Chevrolet Spark is a compact car that can not only help drivers squeeze into small parking spots easily, but help them save energy and stay safe and entertained along the way.
The 2020 Spark has much to offer for such a small package, including a seven-inch touchscreen display, five-speed manual transmission, a fuel consumption rating of only 6.2 L/100 km, and both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Beyond that, it’s also equipped with 10 standard airbags and various safety features such as forward collision alert and automatic emergency braking. Not bad for a car reported to have Canada’s lowest MSRP.
Mitsubishi Mirage: Cool, Comfortable, and with Something for Everyone
Starting at $13,991, the Mitsubishi Mirage certainly lives up to its slogan of “style meets sensibility”. Coming in eight different colours and featuring Bluetooth, automatic climate control, mounted controls on the steering wheel, generous amounts of legroom, powered windows, stellar fuel economy (5.6L for highway driving and 6.6L in the city), and a 6.5” colour display, the Mirage is versatile, comfortable and extremely functional.
Automotive school students can also appreciate that this five-door hatchback comes with five years’ worth of roadside assistance within its warranty, as well as safety features like an anti-lock braking system and HID (high-intensity discharge) headlamps.
Nissan Micra: Showing How Good Things Can Come in Small Sizes
Although this model is no longer being produced in Canada, Nissan has stated enough of the model has been produced to last “well into 2020,” so those with auto careers looking to recommend this model to clients should do so while they can.
With a starting MSRP of only $10,488, the Micra comes equipped with Bluetooth, 109 horsepower, a 1.6L four-cylinder engine, strong turning capabilities, as well as a five-speed manual transmission for its S model, and a family-friendly amount of cabin room in addition to its five seats. In other words, it’s a subcompact hatchback that looks more spacious on the inside, so don’t judge this book by its cover!
