If you are planning to get a brand new car but don’t want one that eats a lot of gas or would cost a lot for repairs, you should consider a car that costs between $10,000 to $15,000. It must also have 4/5 doors and it probably should not be a huge car.
It is best to also search for a car that works on gasoline. Probably the most fuel efficient gasoline operated car will be the Yaris by Toyota. Then again, let’s see the Diesel options, because you will have several choices here also.
Between 8,000 to 10,000 Euros, you could possibly get an Astra, Corsa, Opel or a Renault Clio. It is possible to also give thought to purchasing a second-hand car with 60 000 – 140 000 kilometers.
If your finances are more like $12,000 or more, you can get the Opel Astra, Hyundai Accents or the Mazda 6 that is suitably equipped. You might likewise find a Yaris for that much too. There are also late model BMWs that can be obtained for that price but they do burn up gas.
When your spending plan easily tops $13,000, you can probably think about getting a new car instead of a used one. The Mitsubishi Colt is a fantastic idea, it can be a little deafening inside. Moreover, the Colt won’t have a good resale value despite its decent quality.
Another good car, even though a tad small, is the Suzuki Swift. The driver has a certain amount of space, but the person sitting behind him will not enjoy the same comfort. The model with the 1.25 engine saves on fuel but it is not a particularly good drive, which may not be worth it for the price.
The Hyundai Accent 1.5 is yet another car with typical optional features and a decent warranty. Hyundai features a very strong five year warranty or 100,000 kilometers and they’re known for quality service.
Another great car manufacturer is Skoda and they’ve got the new Fabia with 68 HP engine. However, the support is not so great, and you could have problems repairing it at your local garage.
The Renault Clio is an additional car to consider with its 65 horsepower 1.5 liter engine and sufficient room for a tall person. It has pretty good mileage at 5.4 liters per 100km in the city and it consumes just 3.8 liters on the highway. One thing is for sure: you can’t expect to have a high performance car if you’d like a car that is fuel efficient. However many of these cars can go as high at 120 km/h without very much trouble. At high speeds, gasoline consumption can go over 4 liters per kilometer but no more than 7 or 8.
