Our prize list is an opportunity to highlight models with little exposure, but offered at very attractive prices. Competition that is good for consumers in the long term. In 1996, you had to save 6.36 months of minimum wage to buy a Seat Marbella (then billed at 36,590 francs), the cheapest vehicle on the market.

Cheapest cars: the methodology
The prices displayed in this classification are the prices displayed in the catalog of each brand, without promotion or bonus / penalty. We have voluntarily removed from this classification the Renault Twizy, offered from 7,540 euros, as well as the recent Citroën Ami, displayed from 6,900 euros. For us, these electric vehicles, with their homologation quadricycle synonymous with a bonus of 900 euros, are too confined to urban use – and do not always require obtaining a B license – to appear in our list reserved for multi-use cars.
