Looking for an affordable car the fits your budget? Below are the Top Ten cars that you may want to buy if you have a tight budget.nnRenault/Dacia Logan ($9,477) – built in Romania, Turkey, Brazil, India and Iran, this car was designed with low cost and modern features in mind. This means it shares a lot of features with the Renault Clio/Modus and the Nissan Micra.nnFiat Palio ($9,242) – a five-door hatchback that was born in Brazil and built in other Latin American countries, including Poland, Morocco, Turkey, India, South Africa, China and Russia (the sedan version), The Fiat Palio is truly a “world car.” nnHyundai i10 ($9,096) – Hyundai recently changed the names of its cars from actual words to numbers after the letter i. Because of this, the Atos, the smallest member of the Hyundai lineup, became the i10.nnTata Indica ($8,500) – this has always been the **** duckling in the European market where it survives because there’s nothing cheaper available (well, you can get the latest Fiat 600 for under 6,000 Euros). The car is also sold in South Africa where it’s a huge success.nnChery A-1 ($7,340) – The A-1 looks like a competent subcompact and rumors are that it’s going to be sold under the Dodge brand in Mexico. Nevertheless, it’s Chery’s partnership with Austrian company AVL that will be bringing the technology to make this car meet Euro IV standards, something that’s good for the environment.nnGeely HQ SRV ($5,780) – this is based on the mid-’80s Daihatsu Charade. If you don’t remember that particular vehicle, rest assured it was quite a competent subcompact at the time.nnGeely MR ($5,500) – very similar to the HQ, the Geely MR has its roots in the Daihatsu Charade from the mid-’80s. The difference is that this car can be fitted with more “sporty” powertrains.nnSuzuki Maruti 800 ($4,994) – until the Tata Nano arrives, the Suzuki Maruti 800 – the “smallest car in production” – will be the cheapest car you can buy in India and in other nearby countries (even South America). Some versions of the Maruti have even arrived in Europe.nnChery QQ ($4,781) – it’s almost twice as expensive as the cheapest car on the list, but that doesn’t stop the Cherry QQ from coming in at #2. This car sparked some trademark issues because of similarities to the Daewoo/Chevrolet Matiz.nnTata Nano ($2,049) – this car is well thought out and lots of patents have resulted from the creation process — from the Nano’s powertrain to the assembly process itself. Will this car ruin the world? Some voices say that more cars on the roads imply more pollution, which is hard to argue against.nnFor quick and affordable car repairs, visit Auto Repair Services where the service is good and the price is even better.
