Cars don't care about the global economy. They'll die regardless of what your bank statement looks like. So if you're in a need of a new car on the cheap, this is the list for you.
The Times provides us with a list of cheap runabouts that range from the completely uninspired Hyundai Elantra to the reasonably-cool-looing and useful Toyota Yaris, all coming in under the 20k mark.
My recommendation? Get the Lancer - but save a little more and spring for the GTS trim level. Word. [LA Times]
