In recent years many have observed just how much new car prices have risen.
Many new superminis now cost in excess of £15,000, which is a lot of money to put forward for a new car. However, there are still ways of getting behind the wheel of a new car at an affordable price.
Here are seven new models that all still cost less than £10,000.
What better way of kicking off this list than with Britain’s most affordable new car – the award-winning Dacia Sandero, which has proudly held that title since the model was introduced into the UK in 2013.
Prices for this supermini start from as little as £6,995 for an entry-level Access model, though if your budget will stretch, it could be worth opting for the plusher Essential or Comfort models. If you go for the latter you get luxuries such as rear parking sensors, cruise control and a 7” touchscreen with satellite navigation, as well as Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto®. All versions of the Sandero, with the exception of the diesel models, slot in at under £10,000.
MG is going from strength to strength in the UK with its ever-improving line-up of new cars, which are stylish and well-equipped. It’s also impressively spacious, too – particularly for what is quite a compact model.
Prices for the MG3 start from £9,495 for the entry-level ‘Explore’ model, which comes with LED daytime running lights, Bluetooth and all-round electric windows. Even more impressively, though, is the fact that the MG3 comes with a superb seven-year, 80,000-mile warranty, which gives you peace of mind for many years to come.
Dacia Logan MCV
You probably think that a £10,000 budget restricts you to just having a small city car or supermini, but once again Dacia is showing off its incredible value by offering an estate car for less than £10,000.
The Logan MCV is an ideal family car for those on a budget, with a generous amount of rear space and a massive 573-litre boot. Prices start from just £8,495 MRRP, though this budget stretches to the mid-spec ‘Essential’ model, which features air-conditioning, Bluetooth® and electric front windows.

Skoda’s Citigo supermini is one of the best city cars on sale – offering stylish looks and a surprisingly practical cabin in a very appealing package. It’s also one of the most affordable cars in its class, too, with prices starting from just £8,890.
While the entry-level ‘S’ specification – the only grade available for under £10,000 – isn’t particularly well-equipped, it still gets you electric front windows, remote locking and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
