Whether you’re looking for a compact car to cope with the daily commute or would like something that has a little more capability for those adventure road trips, there’s bound to be something that fits your budget, your needs and your personality. Let’s have a look at the top picks, and how you can keep your costs even lower with great deals on pre-owned cars from Al-Futtaim Automall.
If you want to buy a used car in the UAE but only have a limited budget, you can’t do much better than the Ford Focus. One of the best-selling small hatchbacks on the market, this compact yet practical car also has quite a sporty character, with a feisty 1.6Ltr engine. The Focus also offers exceptional handling and a complete safety package. With prices starting at around AED 30,000 and monthly payments of around AED 750 on a five-year Al-Futtaim finance deal, they’re easy on the pocket too.
The Suzuki Swift is the perfect choice for anyone looking for a used car for sale in the UAE for the daily commute. A nippy little 1.2Ltr engine is cheap to run, giving you excellent economy and enough performance to handle the occasional longer highway trip. Prices for a pre-owned car start at around AED 35,000 for the Swift, with monthly finance payments over five years of around AED 675.
A slightly larger offering than its diminutive cousin, the Nissan Micra, the Sunny is a four-door sedan that’s still relatively compact and reasonably priced. With prices starting at around AED 39,000 and finance deals of around AED 625 a month, it’s certainly affordable. A 1.5Ltr engine produces a surprising amount of power and torque, making it ideal for longer journeys, and there’s also plenty of tech packed into the comfortable cabin.
The Renault Duster
We’re moving up a category here, to the compact SUV or crossover class. The Duster is one of the most popular budget-friendly compacts on the road, delivering excellent performance and a spirited go-anywhere 4x4 attitude. Prices start at around AED 40,000 for a good quality used car and can be as little as AED 640 a month over five years with Al-Futtaim finance offers.
The Toyota Yaris
If you’re looking for a hybrid car as your first budget-friendly choice, the Yaris is one of our top picks. The Yaris is a smart 1.5Ltr hybrid that keeps your emissions down to zero in Eco mode and is easy on your pocket. Reliable, quick and with plenty of room in the cabin, the Yaris is a clever choice for a budget used car. Prices start at around AED 42,000 for a top-spec model, with monthly repayments on a five-year finance deal of around AED 672.
