Part II (6-10)

If you have not yet read the prequel to this hub, The Top 10 Cheapest Cars of 2009 - Part 1, please do so now. If you have already read it and enjoyed it greatly, which I know you did, then read this one and be jolly.

These are the 6th - 10th cheapest cars on the market in America right now.

6. Toyota Yaris 3 Door $12,925

This is actually a car I would buy. Mainly I guess because it's a Toyota, a.k.a. Last car you will ever buy. The base model has crank-down windows and no radio, but I see this as the huge Jeep influence on the cute little Yaris... OK maybe not... It does come standard with A/C, power steering, antilockbrakes, six airbags, and a 106 HP engine witha manual trans. This car is very easy to park too. Adding features doesn't go overwhelmingly high either! The four door sedan is $13,685 and the 5 door hatchback is $14,205 with automatic transmission. Great buy I say.

7. Suzuki SX4 Sedan $13,994

The SX4 enters the Top 10 cheapest this year because the base is priced under $14k. power mirrors, locks, and windows, six airbags, antilock brakes, a 143 HP (fairly efficient) engine, and not to mention good looks. More good news: It's fun to drive, roomy inside, and as I said has good looks. Bad news: colors other than silver, white or red cost more (Doesn't bother me. Those are good colors), and the A/C and CD player cost $1,890 - SX4 LE. Overall, I think this is a nice car. Nice features, it's just the nicer features cost a little more.

8. Kia Spectra LX $14,200

All of the previous cars have been subcompact cars (with the Versa having the most room I believe), but this is the cheapest compact car available. Choose from black, white or silver, and then you get four airbags, and a CD player. A/C and automatic transmission can be had for $1000 each. Power locks and windows move you up to the Spectra EX for $16,200. When you are at that price, there are some way better cars out there than the somewhat unsafe, forgettable Spectra. Don't bother with this one.

9. Hyundai Elantra GLS $14,795

If you can live with your car not having A/C and a stereo, then you can get this great driving Elantra GLS for less than $15k! The base has six airbags, the whole power shebang, and antilock brakes. If you desperatelyneed a stereo and A/C, then you can get them in a bundle withcruise control for $1,750. With that, the price is $16,545. This is $1,100 less than a Nissan Sentra, and $800 less than your average Honda Civic. That's not all. Big roomy interior and nice large trunk. Great car.

10. Mitsubishi Lancer DE $15,035

It's almost as if the old street racing Lancer Evolution has grown up. Great looking car, but is missing a few features, some of which are vital to certain car owners. Mirrors and windows aer powered, CD player, a whopping seven airbags - one of them is at the drivers knees which is rare on such an inexpensive car. However, if it is A/C and antilock brakes that you want, then you had also better want an automatic transmission. Adding these things shoots the price up to $17,285. Not really a super dooper deal. Although, it is compared to a Honda Civic DX-VP, and you can probably get a better deal on this than that. This one definitely stands out.
