If you've looked at car prices over the last year or so, you'll have noticed that prices have gotten a little crazy.

A microchip shortage, increased demand and a rise in raw material prices have all contributed to a bottleneck on new car deliveries. In response, new and used car prices have sky-rocketed and have remained high ever since.

That's why we've picked out the best new cars that offer excellent value for money, boasting sub-$20,000 driveaway prices.

Kia Picanto

Kia Picanto micro car

Classed as a micro car, the Kia Picanto has an impressive spec considering its tiny purchase price. Currently, the Picanto S Manual & Auto, as well as the GT-Line Manual, are all on offer under $20,000.

MG 3

Picture not described

The MG 3 hatchback rivals models like the Kia Rio and Volkswagen Polo. It's got a price-defying spec sheet and a 7-year, unlimited kilometre warranty (like the Picanto) – that should give you some peace of mind.

Mitsubishi Mirage

Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback

The cheapest new car under $20,000 is on offer with the longest new car warranty – 10 years! A warranty of that length is pretty unique. The included tech list is excellent, as is the claimed fuel economy of 4.7L/100km combined.

Suzuki Baleno

Suzuki Baleno hatchback

The Suzuki Baleno has the largest boot of the under-$20,000 cars, measuring 355 litres in volume.
