Are you looking for a new vehicle?

Buying a car is a one-time investment. You need to be absolutely sure you’re making the right choice. An ideal car should be the right mix of style and substance, of quality and quantity, and of lavishness and affordability. It needs to be the perfect vehicle.

But whenever people think about a perfect vehicle, they assume it comes with a huge price tag. That’s not necessarily the case. Anyone can buy a good vehicle with a fortune. The real skill is the ability to buy the perfect vehicle without taking a big hit on the wallet.

That sounds like it requires a ton of research. It absolutely does. But don’t worry. We did your work for you and came up with a list of 5 cheapest and best cars right now. Here they are:

1. 2017 Buick Regal Turbo Premium II

Buick really outdid itself with the 2017 version of the Regal. It gave us a vehicle that is, at the same time, a stylish car that looks high-end, a fuel-efficient family vehicle, and an all-wheel drive powerhouse. And we get all this in just around $34,000.

In such a modest price tag, you get features like four-wheel drive, a six-speed automatic transmission, automatic air conditioning, and cruise control. Plus it comes with tons of safety features as well.

2. 2017 Volvo S60 T5 Dynamic

If you want a luxury car on a bargain, there can be no better option than the Volvo S60. It packs a powerful punch when it comes to performance in just $33,950. The interior looks much more upscale than it should at this price range. And it offers plenty of legroom for long family trips.

The 2-litre engine can deliver up to 240 horsepower. The eight-speed transmission offers smooth action. And the four-wheel anti-lock brakes give you good control over the vehicle.  

3. 2017 Cadillac ATS 2.0T

This year’s version of the Cadillac ATS can give expensive German brands like the BMW and Mercedes a run for their money in terms of performance. And although the price tag isn’t huge, it looks just… spectacular.

In just around $34,000, you get a 272-horsepower turbo engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission. There are also other features like cruise control and traction control.

4. 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA250

If you’re a car enthusiast, you would know that driving a Mercedes is a unique experience that no other car can offer you. But the problem with Mercedes vehicles usually is that they are expensive. Not this little baby. The CLA250 is the cheapest vehicle in the Mercedes lineup.

With a 208-horsepower engine and a seven-speed auto-shift manual transmission, the driving performance is pretty decent. Plus, a ton of safety features make it family friendly.

5. 2017 Acura ILX Base

If this was last year, Acura wouldn’t have probably been on our list. But this year, it’s different. The company has remodeled the ILX in looks, feel, and performance. And it’s certainly one of the best affordable vehicles of the year.

One of the cheapest options in this list, the base trim of the ILX comes with a 201-horsepower engine and an eight-speed auto-shift manual transmission.
