Default cheapest new car

Hi

Im looking to buy a new car, but it has to be the cheapest possible.

I had a look on Kia Picanto to around 37.000 for a new model.

To anyone know a cheaper new car than that

Thanks

Daniel

Default too many

Yes i looked at that page, thanks. But there is not an overview which car is the cheapest, so i have to click every manufaturer and model and i think there is more than 1000 car models.

A colleague of mine was looking at the same, and he found out that the Kia Picanto and Suzuki Celerio 2010 are the cheapest.

However there are soooo many good deals out there on almost new cars!! Why not go for a fairly new second hand car, so you can afford something a little bigger or safer? Car dealers have some fantastic deals on second hand cars that have been barely used, and are still under manufacturer's warranty. You could get much more for your money if you buy from a first buyer, as cars in Dubai depreciate so much.

Hi, I am just going to join in with this thread and ask for the best 4x4 but also reasonably priced, I am getting fed up of having to visit the hire place every four weeks and think I should buy soon! I also want to feel safe! Any ideas? It doesn't have to be new but probs not older than 2yrs but then I am a woman what I know about cars you could write on a postage stamp... is it a nice colour, will scratches be noticed, does it look good and is it okay for parking in the mall!!! Btw I'm not the slowest thing on the road so safety is v v important to me!

I can't really advise on which car you should get but if you have a fair idea of the makes of cars that you like, you should test drive them all and then make your decision based on this. There are also loads of websites that do reviews of cars - again, once you have narrowed down your choices, you can make use of these websites to find out more about the cars. As much as I think that asking people's opinion is beneficial, you choose a car that YOU like cause at the end of the day, YOU will be the one driving it.

I drive a 4x4 and sorry to break this to you but a car is actually a lot safer than a 4x4. At high speed, you only need to clip a 4x4 for it to overturn, as opposed to a car that will likely skid and spin but will stay on its four wheels. 4x4s are great if you like yo go offroad and obviously if you have a large family, it offers a bit more space that a car. My two pence but if I could go back in time, I would actually buy a car as opposed to a 4x4 (though I love my car!).

MAZ25, congratulations...!
finally someone who actually states correctly that a 4x4 has NOTHING to do with safety in Dubai in terms of driving, especially if you only drive up/down SZR and from/to Malls etc....
Of course off-road is a different story....same thing with size/higher up, heavier built etc, in a crash...(if you're talking the bigger 4x4 like Range Rover, pajero, Explorer etc)....

I agree with you Maz. I really don't understand the 4x4 mentality in Dubai. People just assume that because it's bigger, it is naturally safer. Not quite so. I watched a Land Cruiser turn turtle right in front of me because it hit the edge of a pavement. Luckily no one was hurt, but people in 4x4s generally drive recklessly because they think that they are indestructible. Excellent point Maz25..I'm going to give you some "thanks" for that!

I think a huge advantage of a 4 x 4 is that you are up higher and see further down the road, as well as behind, at all the idiots who are driving recklessly, or are in the wrong lane, or when an accident has happened, road blockages, etc.

As for the safety, probably you are safer in a car that is less likely to overturn, however, if you get hit head on, a 4 x 4 is probably safer in that there is more car between you and the other one....Couldn't swear to that, though - it would be interesting to see results derived from using crash test dummies, etc. (no, not the band)

Personally, I would rather be in a 4 x 4 sitting higher up if some idiot decides to race up behind in another lane, then swerve into my lane & backends me because he's busy talking on his cell phone & not paying attention

Hi, Personally I bought a Pajero and am very happy with it. for 120k you can buy the full option version new with everything like Electric Leather seats, CD changer, 7 seats, big alloys, 3.8litre engine etc. To get the same spec with similar cars like the Prado, FJ Cruiser, Ford Explorer etc. you will need to spend about 40k more.
Also the car is well built and reliable, the servicing is fast (same day) and the resale is good.
the only problem is that everyone has one!
