While compiling our list of ten of the cheapest 4-cylinder cars, we found that although you generally get what you pay for, some cars offer more for the money than others. It’s just a question of doing some homework. We made the decision to go for an engine with a decent complement of cylinders, rather than something with only three. Some parts of the world offer cars with only two cylinders, so that’s another good reason to celebrate the tastes of the typical American driver.
Any of these choices might be your next purchase. Some will be cheap and cheerless, others will be a little more cheerful. But all of them are relatively affordable.
