5 TOP Cheapies

1 MITSUBISHI MIRAGE

$13,990 D/A Itís Australiaís cheapest car, which is all anyone who wants a Mirage ES manual needs to hear. But whatíll she be worth three years hence? According to Glassís Guide, $5736.

2 MG 3

$13,990 Same sticker as the Mirage, without a drive-away sweetener, yet the MG 3 Core has styling and handling on its side. And itíll hand back $6715 three years in.

3 KIA PICANTO

$14,190 Kiaís Picanto S brings driving fun and a sevenyear warranty to the table, for $200 more than the MG. But itíll be worth $188 less after three years.

4 HOLDEN BARINA, HONDA JAZZ, MAZDA 2

$14,990 A trio of $15K stars, though the Japanese win for all-round value. In 2021, your Mazda 2 Neo manual will fetch $7945 against $7645 for a Jazz VTi and $6296 for a Barina LS.

5 HYUNDAI ACCENT

$15,490 It should perhaps be badged Ancient, so itís a good thing the Accent can be had dirt cheap, with a similarly low value ($6506) after three years.
