Looking for great vehicular value on a small budget? Pickles boasts plenty of excellent and economic vehicles under $10,000. Here are some of our favourite vehicles with very affordable price tags.
 
2013 Volkswagen Golf
Why?
Just coming in under the 10k budget, the Golf is one of more luxurious cars in this category. It offers a superior ride and drive experience thanks to German engineering. It is surprisingly agile, hugs the road when cornering and the cabin is quiet due to the inclusion of noise deafening technology.

2007-2013 Toyota Camry
Why:
The Camry is one of best-selling cars worldwide and still in high demand today. It is renowned for being one of the most reliable and durable cars on the market. For those with a tight budget, the Camry is very affordable in terms of running costs including repairs and maintenance. It also has a strong resale value which speaks to the quality of the build.

2015 Hyundai i30
Why?
The updated 2015 model comes with an improved diesel engine boasting an impressive fuel economy of just 4.6L/100km. New cars come with a 5-year warranty which is transferable to new owners. Be aware of the small back seats if you plan on travelling longer distances, as the space may be a little tight for the tallest among us.
 
2012 Suzuki Swift
Why?
The compact nature of this car makes it ideal for parking and small, tight roads. It is easy to drive, handles well and is fuel-efficient. Thanks to clever engineering, the engine runs well and if serviced regularly will last and last and last. It was also given a 5-star safety rating by ANCAP.
