But that doesn’t mean you need to limit yourself to a bad cheap car like the Nissan Versa S, which really reminds you that you get what you pay for. Instead, here are some better alternatives:

1. Chevy Spark (about $14,000). It’s small and slow, but it does come with standard amenities like in-car Wi-Fi, touchscreen interface, 10 airbags, and a rearview camera. It’s quite stable when you fast, and it handles well too.

2. Ford Fiesta S Sedan (about $15,000). The power is descent enough with 120 HP. The steering is very responsive and the chassis is tuned well, so in twisty roads this is quite an enthralling ride. It also has that Euro look that’s unique among most US cars. If you can spare an extra $300, you can get the hatchback version.

3. Kia Rio Sedan (about $15,000). Get this, since the hatchback version costs a thousand bucks more. Here you get 138 horsepower with the robust and smooth direct-injected four-cylinder engine.

4. Smart Fortwo ($15,400). This is what you get when you have a lot of difficulty with parking in your everyday driving. This offers a turning circle of just 22.8 feet, which is astonishing. Its small size (it only seats 2 people) also lets you park in spaces no other car can fit in.

5. Hyundai Accent SE ($15,600). You get a 6-speed manual with 137 HP. Also, it just looks much more expensive than it really is. So you see? You can get good cars with low prices in 2017!
