individual game mentioned here eight examples that they are not very memorable, but they can make happy those who are looking for a used or used car – whether for an attractive purchase price, for a different proposition or to meet family or work needs.

  • Fipe table: from BRL 50,278 (LTZ 1.4 2016) to BRL 74,309 (LTZ 1.8 AT 2020)

For the renovation was done at the end of 2015, the Cobalt was just a very roomy sedan and looked unattractive. The facelift, however, not only improved the modern style, but also reduced the criticism of the design. But great virtues were maintained. With the size of a mid-size sedan and the price of a compact model, it appealed to large families and taxi drivers..

O wheelbase of 2.62 m and 563 liters of trunk They were (and still are) unbeatable in this price range. In addition, the sedan has the reliability of the 1.4 and 1.8 engines. Our recommendation is for the version with the more powerful engine and six-speed automatic transmission. With BRL 65 thousand, it is possible to buy 2018 models with less than 100 thousand kilometers..

No, we are still not talking about pre-owned units of the new Montana, but the second generation, sold between 2011 and 2020. The mini truck was based on the controversial Agilethat’s why he also inherited a questionable build that earned him funny nicknames.

Additionally, Montana It has always been a good choice for heavy liftingto highlight 1,100 liter bucket and the good one carrying capacity – 758 kg. The pickup also shared an engine with the aforementioned Cobalt (and nearly all of Chevrolet’s national lineup from the 2010s). for work, we recommend the LS version – you can find units from 2017 or 2018 with air conditioning and a price around R$ 50 thousand..

The slightly old-fashioned look and good interior space – especially for the head – are the biggest draws, as performance and utility are not the Fiat Idea’s strengths. Released between 2006 and 2016, there is an extensive list of versions and prices. Seniors cost around $20,000.while the latest ones are close to R$ 60 thousand. We recommend the middle mode, for post facelift 2010 models with a 1.6 engine and a price around R$ 40 thousand..

So much so that he resigned without leaving a successor. Loved by rally fans around the world, the Lancer always pleased with the handling and the option of all-wheel drivesomething rare in the area.

And the best thing is that this is the best configuration and set of first-generation machines: 2.0 naturally aspirated engine and six-speed manual transmission.

From the 2017 line, in addition to receiving an interior upgrade, The Etios now has a four-speed automatic transmission – which despite not being modern, provided an extra dose of comfort. Toyota’s good reputation still means that the newest models are valued, up to R$ 75,000. Our advice is to find out Etios 2018 with automatic transmission for values ​​up to R $ 8,000 less.
