From the Nissan Versa to the Hyundai Accent Hatchback, there are several 2015 models geared toward buyers with limited budgets. Finding the right balance between reliability and affordability can be a bit of a guessing game, but it's definitely possible to get a reliable, high-quality car without breaking the bank in the process.

The first concern is how much you can afford to pay overall. To help make this determination you may want to use an online calculator to figure out the amount that will be comfortable for you to pay. Next you may want to browse advertisements in local newspapers for cars on sale at dealerships in your area. Once you have an idea of what is currently on the market in your price range you can compare cars online and speak to friends, family and car salespeople about their experiences with the vehicles you are considering. 

You are looking for the top rated cars for sale in your price range. Some important points to consider when comparing cars are rating, fuel efficiency and cost to maintain. A quick online search will reveal the ratings for cars you are thinking about. Be sure to include the correct year, as rating for the same model can vary from year to year as modifications are made to the design. Fuel efficiency car ratings are also fairly easy to find and will give you an idea of how much each will cost to operate. Lastly, you may want to do a search or ask around for information about repairs generally cost for each type of car you are considering.
