Foreign cars that do not ruin us: the rating of low-cost


When buying a vehicle should pay attention to many characteristics. It is wrong to make a choice only on the basis of a suitable design, engine power and other technical details.

Car service

A car is an expensive pleasure, since for its purchase it is necessary to pay a tidy sum, but quite often even this amount turns out to be insignificant compared to its further maintenance.

The cheapest cars in operation

Rating lists of cars, taking into account the amount that will have to spend on further maintenance, are many countries. However, it is impossible to call them identical. In different countries, the car can be in different statuses: cheap and expensive.

It depends on the price of the car itself, on the design of insurance, the purchase of spare parts. Low cost of spare parts will be provided if their production is established directly in this country. If you have to deliver parts from other countries, then due to high duties, the cost increases.

World rankings

Statistical company Vincentric conducted research to determine the most affordable machines to maintain. Particular attention during the study was drawn to:

  • average repair price;
  • service cost in service centers;
  • cost of maintenance.

As a result, a rating of the most expensive and cheap cars was made. The leader of this list is a compact foreign car Hyundai Accent. Its superiority lies in a high degree of reliability, long warranty, special appeal due to its chic design. Hyundai Accent - a truly economical car, because the average cost of maintaining such a machine does not exceed three thousand dollars a year, and maintenance - three and a half thousand dollars.

The Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric car is a little inferior in terms of economy. Many motorists are ready to become owners of such cars. The manufacturer guarantees stable operation of the electric motor and the battery throughout the warranty period, focused on the one hundred thousandth mileage. Of course, it is necessary in any case to rely on certain amounts, directing them to auto maintenance, but they are insignificant and do not bear a huge financial burden.

The third place is surely taken by the Smart Fortwo Electric Drive - the electric car of the new generation. This car does not need many consumables, so its maintenance is also considered quite affordable.

Available in operation cars in Russia

The Russian experts in the preparation of the rating take into account:

  • type of gearbox;
  • engine volume and power;
  • availability of additional options.

Often a greater number of additional devices or mechanisms with which the manufacturer equips the car, contribute to the fact that the car will cost the owner more expensive to maintain.

Economy cars

It is not surprising that marketing agencies rank cars, the main criterion of which is the amount of fuel consumed, since the fuel is constantly changing, most often upward. For this reason, motorists have become more seriously pay attention to the fuel consumption of cars that are interested. Quite popular in the world are brands of machines operating on an alternative fuel resource (electricity, hydrogen, etc.).

The third place was managed by the Mini Clubman 1.6 Cooper D, whose fuel consumption is only 4.1 liters per 100 km, but the total cost is 11 thousand dollars more.
