The cheapest new vehicle now costs more than £10,000, as prices surge compared to 2021

Cheapest new car in the UK revealed. And for the first time it’s over £10,000!

The Kia Picanto has been revealed as the cheapest new car to buy in the UK with a starting price of £11,810. 

But as the country feels the pinch of the cost of living crises, even the entry level model of Kia's city car - which has a 1.0-litre engine and manual gearbox - is £4,000 more than last year's cheapest car.

Last year, the Dacia Sandero could be driven straight out of the showroom for just £8,995, but the updated version starts at £12,225 - an increase of more than £3,000. 

Other models under £15,000 include the 1.2 litre Citroen C3, the Dacia Sandero Stepway SUV, and the five-speed manual MG MG3, which are all available from £12,225, while you can get the keys to a brand-new Hyundai i10 at £13,430, and the much-loved Fiat Panda starts at £13,655. 

And, if you do want to join the Kia club, we've recently been alerted to a great offer that means Kia owners can protect their cars with a bespoke Kia Care Service Plan to keep their car well looked-after.

The service plan includes a free MOT if you sign up in May 2022. 

The plan is tailored to your vehicle so it gets the precise care it requires and is a comprehensive package from the company that designed, built, and sold the vehicle. Nobody is better placed to care for it long term.
