Cheapest New Car to Buy in Singapore (2022)

profileJin Hua Yeo

Back in my secondary school days, I always hung out at the arcade with my friends after school.

One of my favourite games to play with my friends was Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune, we’d race all afternoon, compare our cards and talk about cars in school.

Nope, I didn’t have bad grades if you’re wondering.

Fast forward about a decade later, when all of us are adulting now.

Just the other day, when I hung out with that same group of friends, we were talking about applying for the Basic Theory Test for our license.

We discussed whether to learn driving from a driving school or from a private tutor.

Then we started talking about getting our own cars in the future and considered between new and secondhand cars.

Personally, I prefer to get a new car, I won’t have to worry about any damage or potential issues since it’s new.

But in the limited land space of Singapore, cars are known to be expensive…

Which is why I’m writing this article! So you know where to find cheap new cars that will serve you well for years to come!

Some Additional Costs to Note Before Getting Your New Car

Everyone knows it’s expensive to get a car in Singapore, especially with all the different taxes, car insurance and fees we have to pay.

Most notably, we have our Certificate of Entitlement (COE).

Which gives those holding it the right to register, own, and use vehicles in Singapore.

But besides COE, other fees might also be incurred when you buy a new car in Singapore. It is said that you need to be earning at least S$8,850 to comfortably afford a new car.

For a full breakdown of COE and other costs that could potentially be incurred when you buy a new car, check out this article explaining all the costs.
