If you’ve been smart over the last couple of months and have used the relaxed interest rates to fix your credit record, it might be time to reward yourself with a starter pack car. It’s also important not to stop there, getting a new car shouldn’t break your bank balance, you need to be able to live within your means.
The cost of fuel is growing. But buying an inexpensive car doesn’t mean you need to compromise on safety, technology and efficiency. The South African #CarsAwards have been profiling cars for all price ranges and categories. These cars are the best entry-level starterpacks to consider.

This car has excellent specifications, strong driving characteristics, brand character, warranty and after-sales service. It might be one of the most important new-vehicle introductions in the South African market for its excellent value for money and good brand credibility.
If you are looking for a car with a good price, great fuel economy, decent handling, infotainment, and a spacious and functional layout cabin then this is the car for you.
