Not all of us have expandable budgets that stretch to the hundreds of thousands of Dirhams we can spend on buying a new car. As much as we’d love to go out and splurge a little on a nice new G-Wagen, we have to take into consideration our budget.
Before we had the idea, our Dubicars analyst’s sifted through piles of data to find the right price point. We noticed that cars ranging from AED 50,000 to AED 80,000 tend to be the most popular, so we worked around both up and down to find the best deals on Dubicars.
For our top 5 budget-friendly cars, we capped it at a maximum of AED 100,000, must be 2020 models with zero kilometres on the clock and be available on Dubicars. Oh, and all cars must be GCC specs.
Note that prices may change over time.
With that out of the way, let’s see what budget-friendly cars are available on Dubicars in no particular order.
Let’s start the list off with the most cost-effective vehicle for sale on Dubicars, the 2020 Kia Picanto. It was a choice between this and the Hyundai i10, but we feel the Picanto is a better deal.
For starters, prices start at AED 39,900 and for that you smart exterior, a multifunction steering wheel and 3-years warranty.
It’s incredibly fuel-efficient and easy to park no matter where you go.
The largest vehicle on the list and really pushes the boundaries on our specified budget with a starting price of AED 98,000 which makes it the most expensive on our list as well.
Not only is it the largest vehicle, but it also has seven seats and is the only one you can take off-road thanks to a sturdy chassis and powerful V6 engine.
Amenities inside include cruise control, a Rockford sound system, digital climate control and 3-year manufacturer warranty or 100,000kms.
