With all of the incredible cars hitting the market, several drivers are looking to upgrade their set of wheels in 2020. For others, it’s a matter of necessity. Either way, the majority of drivers out there need to stick to a budget. 

If a brand-new Tesla or Jeep is out of the question, don’t despair. There are plenty of affordable cars with decadent features and stylish bodies coming in 2020. Here are the most affordable, brand new cars hitting the streets next year. 

Chevrolet Spark Hatchback

Coming in at a low $14,095, Chevrolet’s Spark Hatchback costs half as much as the average vehicle. So, what is this car’s secret? Well, it comes with a simple 1.4-liter inline-4 motor only capable of 98 horsepower. Combined with a five-speed manual transmission, what’s under the hood helps bring the price down. 

In fact, the tiny engine and simple transmission allow for a few modern conveniences at this price point. You get USB ports, OnStar connectivity, and simple on-wheel controls. If you’re interested in fuel economy, then that tiny engine is also capable of pushing 38mpg highway. 

Nissan Versa

Boasting a modest 1.6-liter I4 engine capable of 122 horsepower, the Nissan Versa offers acceptable power at an even more acceptable price. Personal injury attorneys recommend this car because the Versa comes with automatic emergency braking, a lane-departure warning system, and a 7-inch touchscreen featuring three USB ports. 

EPA rated at 27mpg city and 35 mpg highway; your gas mileage is a decent as well. The Versa comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission for $15,625. However, you can upgrade to the CVT for a little extra cash and even better mileage. 

Hyundai Accent Sedan

Hyundai’s Accent Sedan is the smallest of its kind in the United States, featuring a 1.6-liter I4 engine like the Versa. This car comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, a 5-inch touchscreen with a single USB port, and steering wheel controls. 

The Accent is rated between 29 and 39 mpg, which are both increased by two points if you pay for the CVT upgrade. Including destination charges, this fun little sedan is all yours for just $16,125. Not bad for a sporty and efficient vehicle. 

Toyota Yaris Sedan

Safety and plenty of standard equipment make Toyota vehicles highly recommended by safety officials and wrongful death lawyers. The Yaris comes with 1.5-liter I4 engine and a six-speed manual transmission that you can upgrade by paying for a higher trim level. 

At $16,605, you get a ton of features in the cabin. A 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities, a fifth seat, remote keyless entry and keyless ignition are all standard. Bluetooth and steering wheel controls are also featured. As for safety, you have everything from a backup camera to brake assist and stability control. 


When your budget defines the cars you can choose, finding something jam-packed with features at the lowest price possible is the only way to go. The cars on this list are excellent options for brand new, 2020 models that won’t break the bank.
