The Cheapest New Cars You Can Buy

February 27, 2014

Sometimes you just need a new car, money is tight, and for whatever reason you don't want to buy a used vehicle.
If that's the case with you, then you'll be interested in Cars.com's recently published list of the top 10 cheapest new cars to buy and fuel. Those on the list include the 2014 Chevrolet Spark, 2014 Ford Fiesta, 2014 Scion iQ and the 2014 Toyota Yaris.

If it's a hybrid car you really want, they've included a list of the cheapest of those, too. Hybrids on the list include the 2014 Toyota Prius c and 2014 Honda CR-Z.

I recommend you use TrueCar to find local dealers who are most willing to negotiate on these vehicles, saving you even more money.
