5 Best Compact Cars Under $10K

With such a huge selection of used cars for sale to Delphos area drivers, it's no wonder that we are the go-to destination for shoppers looking to buy on a budget, as all of our cars are under $10K. We have compact cars on hand that will save you money both at the dealership and at the pump, are great for nimble highway and city maneuvering, and will last you for years if you take care of them properly.

Here are five of our favorite compact cars from our lot:

Honda Civic

The highest-rated compact car on U.S. News, the Honda Civic is a mainstay on the used market for a reason. It's got great all-around performance, extreme durability, and with Honda's innovative fuel-saving technology, can get you up to over 40 miles per gallon on the highway.

Toyota Prius

The award-winning Toyota Prius has become the household name in compact hybrid vehicles, blazing the trail for others and being one of the first to crack the 50 miles per gallon barrier, making it one of the most cost-efficient used cars on the market.

Honda Fit

The Honda Fit is a different take on a compact car, offering more cargo space than its competitors while still maintaining exceptional fuel efficiency and the maneuverability of a compact car. Drivers who are quirky and full of personality will love the unique look of the Fit.

Chevrolet Volt

With two electric motors capable of running by themselves and a four-cylinder gasoline-powered engine, the Chevrolet Volt brings the perfect mix of power and efficiency that allows it to drive much faster than its advertised 149 horsepower. It can travel 35 miles on electric power alone and gets an EPA-estimated 94 mpg equivalent in electric mode.

VW Golf

The VW Golf, when equipped with the much-loved turbdiesel engine, gets up to 42 highway miles per gallon, outstanding for an affordable small car with a hatchback. Increase your cargo space and your fuel efficiency--something that not all compact cars manage to accomplish.
