Cape Town - South Africa’s economy is still reeling from its downgrade to junk status. With an increase in vehicle prices and inflation, many motorists are bearing the brunt of the ailing auto industry.

The new car market is especially affected by the poor economy as consumers are finding that much harder to purchase a new vehicle.

So, what vehicles are available, especially entry-level hatchbacks? 

Spoiled for choice

As part of 2017 Youth Day celebrations, we've listed some vehicles available from R100 000 to R200 000. To trim down the list we've only included base-spec derivatives from automakers.

Sure, there are a lack of luxurious niceties and, depending on the model, interior and boot space but these entry-level hatchbacks could be that first essential stepping stone to independence for many young buyers.
