Over the years, automakers have increasingly jacked-up vehicle prices due to improved safety technologies, stricter fuel economy and emission policies. Fortunately, there are affordable vehicles on sale in Canada in 2020 that quickly befit your budget. Despite the low pricing, these vehicles come with advanced technological systems, safety and more exciting features. Below are the leading 10 cheapest cars in Canada with prices excluding freight and PDI fees.
Mazda3 – $18,000
The Mazda3 won the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) in the Canadian Car of the Year award for 2020. The award came when the company unveiled a new generation Mazda3 in 2019. Some of the uppermost features of the Mazda3 include an 8.8-inch infotainment display, Bluetooth, keyless entry, Android Auto/Apple CarPlay and more.
Kia Forte – $17,695
Unlike the Rio, Kia Forte is bigger, newer and includes Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, an 8-inch display. However, the Forte consists of a 6-speed manual but without a heated steering wheel. It is substituted with a large engine with an output of 147hp and 132lb-ft torque, 20 percent better over the Rio.
Hyundai Elantra – $17,149
The 2020 Hyundai Elantra has a similar Powertrain as the Forte but requires more fuel, 7.9L/100km with the Forte consuming 7.6L/100km. Besides, it lacks cruise control, automatic high-beams, mounted media controls on the steering wheel and a smaller display screen, 5-inch.
Hyundai Venue – $17,099
Just above $2,000 cheaper than its immediate competitor, Nissan Kicks, the Hyundai Venue is the cheapest crossroad in Canada but lacks the stripper model. It is the best high-wheel vehicle that suits your budget as it comes with features such as air conditioning, Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, heated seats, 8-inch display and automatic headlights.
Toyota Yaris Hatchback – $16,790
The Toyota Yaris Hatchback is a five-door affordable vehicle in 2020 suitable for low budget Canadians. It comes with a six-speed manual transmission, a 7-inch display, Bluetooth, and air conditioning. However, it lacks the Toyota Safety Sense, like most Toyota vehicles in Canada.
Kia Rio 5-Door – $15,495
Another hatchback on the list is the Kia Rio 5-Door identical to the sedan, which lacks the hatchback and slightly cheaper than the Rio. The Rio is fitted with a manual transmission, more versatile and with a big-car refinement advantage that puts it on the list over its sedan sibling.
Hyundai Accent 5-Door – $14,949
Almost similar to the Rio is the Hyundai Accent 5-Door but fails to deliver heated front seats, automatic high beams, and steering-wheel-mounted audio. Just under $15,000, this vehicle comes with an outstanding interior favorable for any Canadian driver.
Mitsubishi Mirage – $12,298
The Mitsubishi Mirage is among the cheapest five-door vehicles in Canada in 2020 over the sedan that lacks exciting features except for the Android Auto/Apple CarPlay. The Mirage comes with a standard five-speed transmission, 6.5-inch display, Bluetooth and air conditioning system. It also includes a remarkable warranty with five-year roadside assistance.
Nissan Micra – $10,488
The Nissan Micra is the favorite car for many Canadians and the least expensive to accommodate low budget individuals. The vehicle comes with a five-speed manual drive, fun driving dynamics and well-packed cabins suitable for students and families. Besides, it also includes Bluetooth, USB port and its fuel economy.
Chevrolet Spark – $9,998
The Chevrolet Spark is the cheapest vehicle coming under $10,000 with the lowest MSRP in all of Canada. The Spark comes with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, five-speed manual transmission, a 7-inch display and a tilt-adjustable steering wheel. Despite being the cheapest, it is not the worst.
