Buying a new car can be a challenging task, especially when your budget is restricted.

When it comes to deciding which car you should be driving this year, we have compiled the top 5 cars of 2017 here for you to take into consideration.

Ford Focus, One of the Best When on a Budget

Ford Focus has gone through a total overhaul in 2017. The oversized grill that used to be seen at the front bumper is now gone, so are the rounded-shaped headlights and the number of dashboard buttons.

These are replaced by a much sleeker and less complicated design. Cabin quality has also improved now as better materials are used.

Toyota Corolla, Great for a Family

The 2017 Toyota Corolla has finally arrived. This is a quieter and bigger car with more comfortable seats and a smoother ride than its previous versions. Anyone who has test-driven the 2017 Corolla will notice its crisper steering that is actually preferable to the previous model.

The 2017 Corolla is packed with modern features that are all wrapped in style. It is roomier, attractive, better equipped, and fuel efficient. There is less vibration from pedals, thus resulting in an improved ride and handling.

The eco-friendly features of Corolla include low-rolling resistance tires with special aero-dynamic panels.

In addition, you can select the Eco mode, which minimizes fuel use through climate control.

The gearless nature gives Corolla a very smooth acceleration, without any power dips. The silent acceleration is further enhanced this time as the engine’s cabin is well insulated.

The 4-door Corolla has a few more extras in the cabin, with a largely identical dash and clever door design. The new version offers more capacious boot and a little longer wheelbase.
