Perhaps the best things about small cars is the tiny bite that take out of your wallet. Not only do small cars tend to have lower starting prices than other types of cars, but they also tend to cost less to own, thanks to better fuel economy and lower insurance rates than other types of cars. Getting a deal on a small car is another good way to shoehorn a car payment into your budget. Small car discounts and incentives include cash-back deals and low- or no-interest financing. Small car lease deals can have low monthly payments or require no money down. Check out October’s best deals on small cars.
