The cheapest car on the market is no longer cheap, but is it still a bargain?


The market is still choppy. We are no longer surprised when a new car increases in price. In fact, the price increase in new cars is generalized and the exception is that of those models that maintain their prices, or have risen very little, since the beginning of the year.

In recent months we have told you about the car that has become the cheapest in the Spanish market. Until just a few days ago, it was possible to buy a Mitsubishi Space Star from €10,900, a price very similar to that of the Mitsubishi urban car at the beginning of the year, and even in recent years.

But the situation has changed. Mitsubishi has revised its promotions, to offer us a Mitsubishi Space Star from €12,150, more expensive, but also better equipped. In this way, the cheapest car on the market at the moment would be the Hyundai i10 from €10,800.
