Looking for inexpensive wheels under $14,000? Want to sell your old car for cash and upgrade to something new?
Yep, we’ll even come and collect your car from your home or workplace for free! Here are 15 awesome gadgets you could buy with our cash for cars deal:
1. Suzuki Alto – $11,790

The Suzuki Alto may not hum as sweetly as a Ferrari or an Alfa Romeo, but when it comes to economics, it certainly ticks all the right boxes. With a petite 1.0 litre, three-cylinder engine and a weight of just 885 kg, the Alto was designed to have a very low fuel consumption. In fact, it’s one of the most fuel-efficient cars on the market, using an average of just 4.7L/100km!
Other stand-out features of the Suzuki Alto include Bluetooth connectivity, central locking, a six-speaker stereo system, MP3 auxiliary input, ESP stability control, ABS brakes, alloy wheels, and front fog lamps. The drawbacks? It only has a four-star ANCAP safety rating and enough seating for four people.
2. Holden Barina Spark – $12,490

Not to be confused with the regular Barina, the Holden Barina Spark is a sporty and nimble hatchback aimed at younger buyers and city dwellers. It comes with a 7″ touchscreen display that lets you call, message, play music, and navigate your way around town with Google Maps. It also features a rear-view camera, push button start, low fuel economy (5.2L/100km), and a five-star ANCAP safety rating.
Our favourite part? The Barina Spark offers seating for five people (albeit tight in the rear center seat) so that you can squeeze more of your friends in. However, it doesn’t come with Bluetooth connectivity and the boot doesn’t offer much storage space.
3. Mitsubishi Mirage – $12,995

The new Mitsubishi Mirage is a stylish hatchback with a sporty exterior and a surprisingly spacious interior. It comes with Bluetooth connectivity, voice control, keyless entry, a 1.2 litre 3-cylinder engine, five-star ANCAP safety rating, cruise control, and an impressive 4.6m turning radius. We’re also big fans of Mitsubishi’s 5-year/100,000km warranty!
The downside? Online reviewers have complained that the Mirage lacks stability in windy weather, the steering wheel has limited adjustment, and the uninspiring dashboard layout will leave you feeling a little bit ‘blah’.
4. Nissan Micra – $13,490

If ‘automatic’, ‘affordable’ and ‘agile’ top your list of necessities in a new car, chances are that the new Nissan Micra is on your shortlist. With a small 9m turning radius and range of tech savvy features, including a rearview camera, satellite navigation, and a 5.8″ touch-screen display, the Nissan Micra is the perfect work and play vehicle for people who live in inner-city areas.
It also has a fuel consumption of 5.9L/100km, a four-star ANCAP safety rating, electronic brake force distribution, Bluetooth connectivity, five seats, and an impressive 251 litre boot capacity — perfect for mini staycations and family outings!
5. Volkswagen Up! – $13,990

One of the newest competitors in the micro vehicle market, the Volkswagen Up! boasts the best fuel efficiency (4.4L/100km) and advanced technology, like a radar-guided anti-collision system that will brake the car automatically if it senses an imminent crash.
The Up! also features a 1.0 litre, three-cylinder engine, a reasonable boot size, audible seat belt warnings, parking sensors, cruise control, satellite navigation, and a five-star ANCAP safety rating.
